It's On

I've only used Monster, Craig's List, and Yellow Pages so far...I need to give this a try...



I've updated my resume and begun sending them to companies in Hawaii.  I actually found two listings in the import / export business on Craig's List.  I don't know how seriously they'll take an applicant who isn't local, but maybe my 13 years of industry experience will make them curious enough to at least call.  I'm looking up temp agencies on the island and registering with them as well.

One of the websites didn't allow me to fill out an application online but had a PDF file to print, complete, and fax.  Where can I fax to a long distance number?  Does Kinkos do that?

I also bought my plane ticket and reserved my room in Waikiki for a week.  And no, I didn't put it on my new credit card.

My brother has applied for jobs outside of the area where he lives and both times that he was moving he got the job before he moved. I'm hoping the same happens for you!
