HOW TO ANSWER THE MOST COMMON INTERVIEW QUESTION 
"TELL ME ABOUT YOURSELF"

If you’re like most folks, “tell me about yourself” may bring up fears of not knowing what to say, saying too much, or not even wanting to talk about yourself. Join us as we teach you the tips and strategies to feel comfortable talking about yourself and starting off an interview the right way. Presented by Cori Conner, Job Prep Services Specialist, Leeward Community College. This event will not be recorded and thus no replays will be available afterward.
UNDERSTANDING AND UTILIZING LABOR MARKET INFORMATION FOR YOUR JOB SEARCH
Whether you are starting off or switching careers, learn how to make informed career decisions using LMI. View job projection numbers including the number of job openings and salary information for your career of interest. Most importantly, see who’s hiring now and what skills they’re looking for through job posting analytics. Presented by Giovanni Villa, Research Statistician, State of Hawaiʻi Department of Labor and Industrial Relations (DLIR). This event will not be recorded and thus no replays will be available afterward.
VIRTUAL CAREER FAIR BOOTHS
Join 20 minute information sessions to learn about career opportunities and resources + discover internships, part-time jobs, and full-time jobs in industries that are hiring now. Featured industries include: Environmental, Healthcare, Finance, Non-Profit, Public Service, Tech, and more. Check out the schedule or learn more about each organization. Info sessions will not be recorded and thus no replays will be available afterward.
THE IT FACTOR COMPETITION: FINAL ROUND
An event to challenge your job readiness skills and earn the chance to win a prize! In this final round, students provide a live elevator speech in front of judges from various industries. Learn more and meet the final round judges.
