“Island employers are so pleased with HPU graduates,” said Lianne Maeda, “that they continue to heavily recruit HPU students year after year.” She should know. She is head of the school’s Career Services Center.

Through the years, Maeda explained, local employers have learned that HPU students have what it takes to get ahead in the professional world: knowledge and practical experience gained through both the classroom and on-the-job internships.

“ I recruit HPU students for my company,” Sean Tong, HPU MSIS ’00 and manager of A+ Computer Experts, “because they are hard working, practical minded, and business oriented.”
Each spring semester, HPU’s Career Services Center holds the Business and Technology Career Fair as a way to provide local companies opportunities to interview HPU students and to allow HPU students and alumni career and employment information through recruitment, information tables, and workshops.

“ The job market is very tight,” said Bobbie Lau, HPU MBA ’06 and vice president of Colliers Monroe Friedlander. (Also a Kamehameha Schools graduate.) “HPU offers educated individuals in a convenient forum.”

“ I think the education I received at HPU helped me in my career,” said John Hancock manager Nash Subotic, HPU BA ‘02 MBA ‘03. “I think HPU recruits are ready for the business world because of the training and education they receive from the HPU faculty and staff.”

Subotic also values the fact that HPU students also gain an international and intercultural perspective while attending school. In his position, Subotic, who came to HPU from Sarajevo, supervises 17 marketing representatives and financial advisers, eight of whom are HPU alumni.

HPU produces a well-rounded group of graduates each year, said Maeda. “The University caters to traditional students and working professionals looking for advancement.

“ I chose HPU based on its proximity to my work and the class schedule,” said Lau. “My degree enhances my ability to do my current job better, adds value to our firm, and allows me to grow in my career and industry.”
