Career development and preparation is an integral part of Hawai'i Pacific University's mission statement.  The Career Development Center assists students and alumni by educating, engaging, and facilitating career readiness programs that empower them to be successful in the college-to-career transition.  Our goal is to arm students with the career knowledge and job skills necessary to obtain meaningful opportunities locally, nationally, and internationally.  

The Career Development Center invites you to partner with us to fulfill your recrruitment needs and support the professional development and success of our students and alumni.  Our office can connect you with motivated, qualified HPU students and alumni from Hawai'i and around the world, through a variety of recruitment activities and services.  Please contact us if you have any questions or would like to discuss recruiting options for your organization.


On-campus Recruitment

We welcome on-campus recruitment via employer information sessions. Optimum timing for on-campus recruitment occurs during HPU’s fall and spring semesters, specifically during the months of September – November and February – April. Ideal days for employer information sessions are Tuesday – Thursday. Please notify us at least 3 weeks prior to your preferred recruitment date so we can effectively promote your information session with our students.

If you are seeking to recruit student interns, please consider scheduling an on-campus employer information session four to five months prior to when the internship is scheduled to begin.


Recruiting During Covid-19

For the safety of students and employers during the Covid-19 pandemic, the Career Development Center recommends campus recruiting occur in a virtual environment. We are happy to schedule your information session via Zoom.


Student Engagement

The Career Development Center facilitates a variety of career-readiness workshops and webinars for HPU students. Employers interested in supporting us in these workshops/webinars are welcome to contact us to explore how we can collaborate with one another in support of students’ college-to-career transition.
