Career Expo 2021 returns to the Neal S. Blaisdell Center Exhibition Hall Wednesday as an in-person event for the first time since 2019.
Presented by the Honolulu Star-Advertiser and U.S. Vets, Career Expo 2021 promises to “directly connect Hawaii employers providing serious opportunities to serious job seekers in-person,” according to the organizers.
They said job seekers can discover new career paths and submit applications for hundreds of employment opportunities.
Dozens of local employers and employer-resource organizations, including Enterprise Rent A Car and ProService Hawaii, will be attending the event. Previous expos have received over 1,000 job applicants.
This will be the 16th show in the Career Expo’s eight-year history, including the past three conducted virtually due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Organizers say the Career Expo attracts Hawaii’s top applicants and has helped employers connect with talented candidates seeking careers in many fields, including technology, transportation, retail, banking, health care, hotel and hospitality, sales, management, real estate and education.
Admission is free. The event runs from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Attendees are urged to wear business attire and bring a resume and proof of vaccination or a negative COVID test result.
