The U.S. Postal Service has launched a new way for island residents to learn about its job opportunities.

USPS is hosting twice-monthly online job fairs during which postal hiring specialists share information about current USPS Hawai‘i job openings, answer questions and offer step-by-step guidance for how to apply.

“These virtual job fairs will provide an easy way for anyone interested in a postal career to join the USPS work force … ,” USPS Human Resource Specialist Suzanne Kalama said in a press release. “They’ll be informal talk-story sessions that provide potential applicants a quick and simple way to get the information they need in order to take the first steps towards a rewarding postal career.”

The first-ever USPS online job fair was July 12. The job fairs are scheduled from 9-10 a.m. every other Tuesday through Nov. 15.

“We understand that not everyone has the flexibility in their schedules to attend one of our in-person job fairs,” Kalama said in the release.

“Our job fair talk-story sessions are 60 minutes long, but potential applicants can sign in and then sign off as soon as they get the information they need,” Kalama said in the release. “A 30-minute investment of their time could result in a 30-year career!”

In addition to the online job fairs, USPS will host in-person job fairs in August at three locations on the Big Island: 

  • 9 a.m.-noon and 1-4 p.m. Saturday, Aug 6, at the Kailua Kona Public Library.
  • 9 a.m.-2 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 6, at Haleki’i Farmers Market in Kealakekua.
  • 1-4 p.m. Aug 20 at the Kailua-Kona Public Library.

Those unable to attend either the in-person or online job fairs can apply for postal jobs online.

“USPS jobs in Hawai’i provide great opportunities for anyone seeking a fast-paced, rewarding work environment with good pay,” Kalama said in the release. “As outlined in our USPS Delivering for America plan, we’re modernizing and continually adapting to the changing needs of our customers. In order to do that, we need motivated, dedicated people to join us to deliver for our local communities and our nation.”
