Virtual Job Fair website is launched

The Maui News

Maui County has launched a Virtual Job Fair website to assist Maui County residents seeking employment opportunities, job training or new career paths.

The website — www.mauicountyvirtualjobfair.com — also gives employers an online resource to find workers.

The website was a collaboration between the county Office of Economic Development, the county Workforce Development Board and the University of Hawaii Maui College.

“This new website provides a virtual, safe way to match employers and job seekers through online listings and employment searches,” Maui County Mayor Victorino said.

A search feature allows a job seeker to type in a job title, key words and select an employment sector, such as business, construction or health care, he said.

The website also provides career counseling and training opportunities for new career paths and helps workers move beyond their current skill levels. It offers career information, resume building, internships, college certificates/degrees, financial aid opportunities and possible subsidized training through the Maui American Job Center.

“This unique Virtual Job Fair was designed especially for Maui Nui residents,” said UH-Maui College Chancellor Lui Hokoana. “We want to help you through this challenging time.”

For more information or help, job seekers can call the Maui American Job Center at 270-5777. Employers may receive help by calling 727-2770.
