Aloha Chamber members,
Got a college internship program in your company? If so, please take this brief seven-question survey so that your Chamber can help you find the next generation of talent.
Imagine being able to quickly find and hire a qualified local applicant for every job opening you have, at any level. Imagine if every local student who wants to live and work in Hawaii finds a satisfying living wage job after graduation, instead of leaving to find work on the mainland. Imagine hiring a college intern who eventually becomes a high-performing member of your team because he or she already learned the skills necessary for the position.
The Chamber and other partners are working to make that vision a reality. One proven way to build connections between local talent and employers seeking new employees is through internships. We want to help interested businesses learn to provide effective internships to find the next generation of talent.
Internship experience is more important than ever as, increasingly, jobs are being unfilled due to the lack of a skilled workforce. In addition to focusing on the present needs, we need to invest in future needs.
On other notes, don’t miss out on the biggest Chamber event of the year, the 169th Annual Membership Luncheon on August 14. Few sponsorships and seats are available – register now!
And, please be prepared and safe with the impending hurricanes and tropical storms heading towards the islands.
Laulima & mahalo,
President & CEO
