Any contracting/consulting firms doing work in Hawaii? Possibly interested in making the move.

Coming from someone who grew up there, the main industries there are tourism and military. May be opportunities as a federal contractor with DoD, I think I heard BAH does some work there.

Also if by Hawaii you mean Oahu, it's really congested and is up there with LA for worst traffic in the US. And mad expensive in terms of housing and nearly all food and goods are shipped there


I used to talk to some colleagues about it and they used to live/work there. They all told me about the ugly side of things in Hawaii such as problems with drugs, homelessness, home getting broken into multiple times, etc. obviously a great place to visit, but I can see it being fun if you’re still young.


Glad you asked this. I’m trying to move back home there within the next 2 years, but am not sure if I’ll be able to get lucrative work consulting there. I’m currently full remote but based out of EST.




MITRE also has work there (any organization supporting PACOM, really). Costs are high, schools are low-end (40th in nation), and there are the usual issues that endure in tourism-centric areas (higher personal property crime, drugs, low wages, lack of real career growth). The people I know that really love it are early-career people and retirees.


HII has various contract positions in Hawaii (Oahu). Lmk if you’re interested! Various roles available: analyst, PM, software engineer, etc.

HII just got Booz-blocked.

I think these are the rejection emails that hurt the most. I’m very frustrated with being told I was the best candidate, but that they can’t hire me for other reasons. Is it something I’m doing? Or is it really just bad circumstances?

Hi everyone! I am in a kind of a tough situation right now. I got a job opportunity in the Netherlands who have already given a joining date on 11 May. My current company is in India and the notice period here is 60 days. I have already resigned and tried to convince the management to reduce it to 30 days but they agreed to 45 days. But this will collide with my new joining date.
Is there any legal action or repercussions if I cannot serve the 45 days notice period? Thanks in advance!

I've had 5 no-shows to video interviews for a recruiter position. It's a full-time time, salaried , 100% remote role. I have 8 other corporate roles and not experiencing this. Any tips or ideas? I send interview reminders, send a follow-up email/text after the no show to make sure they are ok. I haven't heard back from anyone. So odd.
