View Full Version : OT: Moving to Oahu
05-22-2008, 11:22 PM
I am moving to Oahu late July/Early August, and will need to find some work. Anyone who has anything, or knows any good places to look, I would greatly appreciate the advice!

What type of skills/degree do you have? What line of work are you in at the time?
Sounds a little sketchy moving to Oahu with no job. It can be pricey and competitive. You can always look into hotels and restaurants. Since tourism is a major economy in Hawaii, this would probably be your best bet.
Good luck and even if you don't find a job that pays well, at least you will be in paradise.

It is sketchy, that is why I'm trying to at least get some leads before move time gets close. Currently, I do sales for an electrical contractor. I have a degree in business/marketing, and a lot of experience in landscape. Thank you for the advice. It is greatly appreciated!

Quite a few Hawaii jobs are posted on Career Builder. You could start searching there. Let them know you are willing to relocate.
There is also a temp agency for professionals called Adecco. They have an office in Honolulu. I would immediately go get setup an appointment with them.
The one problem you will run into is that they want people who are permanent living on the islands who are planning on staying on the islands long term. (Unless its a contract/short term job.) You wont have this going for you as you are just moving there.
(You ask how I know all of this? I lived on Oahu for 7 years and did all of the above and after diligence finally found a job that paid me real money.)

Post your resume, and check out jobs on craigslist.com under the Oahu section. Also check out Oahu papers online. Get ready for a lifestyle change. It's expensive, but Hawaii is the motherland!!! Have fun, be respectful, and watch out for rabid meth heads!
