|The event was slow to start as the doors opened
at 10 a.m., but things got busy quickly, climaxing over the lunch
hour and slowly quieting down from 1 p.m. until the fair closed
at 2 p.m.
The fair was open to all HPU students and alumni interested in
business and technology fields. This includes areas in the police
department, as both the Honolulu and Maui police departments
were present, along with hotels recruiting for open positions.
Students were able to meet and discuss possible full-time, part-time,
and internship opportunities with the employers
HPU’s Career Services Center Director, Lianne Maeda, who
organized the event, posted a message on Pipeline recommending
that all who attended dress professionally and bring a supply
of updated resumes to distribute to potential employers.
John Schapperle, president of Island Insurance Company presented
an information session on “Internship Opportunities in
Hawai‘i’s Property and Casualty Insurance Industry.”
