UH Maui College Holds Transfer & Career Fair April 18
By Sonia Isotov
On Wednesday, April 18, UH Maui College invites college students, soon-to-be graduates or alumni seeking an internship or employment to attend their transfer and career fair.
The event is free, and will take place April 18 from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. in the Student Lounge located in the Pilina building on the UH Maui College campus.
Attendees will gain insight in the local job market, learn more about the employment skills in demand, and network with hiring managers from companies and organizations like AFLAC, County of Maui, Four Seasons Resort and the Maui High Performance Computing Center.
The Uh Maui College CareerLink office is organizing the event. CareerLink is a program at UH Maui College which prepares students for the challenges of an increasingly competitive job market, connects them to the business community through internships and helps place them after graduation.
“We encourage people to come prepared,” said Kehau Newhouse, Education & Support Specialist for CareerLink.
“That means researching colleges and companies of particular interest, updating your resume and having copies available, dressing appropriately, and not being afraid to ask questions. This is a great opportunity to make new connections.”
