Hawaii Job Seekers Resources (Helpful Websites)

Playing matchmaker between employers and job seekers are multiple websites.  Although these sites offer a great way to find potential employers, they also add a lot of competition to any job opening that gets listed.  Finding the right site can help a great deal in finding the right job for you. 

I have compiled a list of some of the most popular and a few personal favorites of mine.  If you have any you would like to see on the list, please send me an email or leave a message in the comments.  I'm always looking for new resources to share.

Craigslist is a great place to start.  They offer jobs listing by category.  A lot of small  businesses advertise here and it's a good place to find jobs that are recruiting for less competitive positions.  Beware of scams. Craigslist is notorious for scam-artists trying to take advantage of unsuspecting job seekers.

Hawaii Jobs on Demand 
Highly advertised, competition worries.  Allows you to post a resume and keep in on file, useful when it comes to applying for multiple jobs.

City & County of Honolulu Human Resources 
Looking for a City job?  This is the place to find it.  Online applications available.

Hawaii Jobs 
Straight forward, easy to use. (from the Honolulu Advertiser)
Career Builder is a large site, the link above will take you directly to the Hawaii job listings from the Honolulu Advertiser.  Competition may be an issue here. 
Similar to Hawaii Jobs and Hawaii Jobs on Demand.  Search by location, part-time/full-time, job category.  A lot of "nationwide" and "online jobs" however.  Just have to weed those out and there are some good leads here.

This site is the place to find federal jobs.  A great place to start would be the Agency Search if you're looking for a job in a particular field, or if you have a certain degree.  Be sure to enter your location to narrow your search results. 

A lot of companies now offer online applications through their website.  If you're interested in a particular company, try doing a search for their company website.  Most will have links to an Employment Opportunities page or Careers page.

Do you know of an online resource that should be on this list?  Please contact me.
