I was contacted by Kristian Nielsen about a new job-finding service he has put together for Hawaii – if you are looking for a job, check it out. I asked him to write something about his company, and he sent this note…

I am the Founder of Hawaii Job Engine, which is a job site exclusive to Hawaii that I launched April 2012. I am from Denmark, went to university in Hawaii, and most recently lived in Japan for 10 years where I ran a recruiting company. My wife and I always wanted to move back to Hawaii and the dream came true January 2012. I wanted to make sure that when we made the move I would be in a position to leverage my job creating skills that I had developed over the years. It was obvious there was a need for a product to improve how employers and job seekers connect with each other in Hawaii and that lead to the creation of Hawaii Job Engine, which is an online job site where employers can post jobs for hire and job seekers can apply for jobs. Besides being a job “match-making” site, Hawaii Job Engine offers career insight in different formats: 1) Video interviews with prominent business leaders from the local community, which are meant to inspire and educate job seekers, 2) Career articles for job seekers, 3) Facebook Page Facebook.com/HawaiiJobEngine where we offer career advice on a daily basis.

The site is very easy to use, yet incorporates a high level of technology. Employers can create templates for their jobs, statistically track performance of their postings, use Hawaii Job Engine internal mail system and more. Job seekers can build a resume using our state-of-the-art resume builder, which is downloadable to a PDF file, track jobs they have applied for, use our cover letter templates, create email alerts, share jobs via email or Facebook and more. Everything is built keeping the user in mind, yet ensuring advanced features for all users. Just 6 months after launch the site reached more than 800 registered local employers and the growth continues.
