Overview: Hawaii Jobs
There are so many things to see and do in Hawaii. But first—let's look at some things that aren't in the 50th state. The first is probably good news to some: Residents never accidentally show up early for their Hawaii jobs once every year since there's no daylight saving time on any of the islands. No problem if you're afraid of snakes. There are (technically) none in Hawaii. You also won't spot any billboards—they're banned. And last, chances are you can't spell your name using Hawaii's alphabet because it only has 12 or 13 letters, depending on who you ask.
Now let's take a look at the things you can only do in Hawaii. You can mail a coconut anywhere in the world from the Hoolehua Post Office. It's called the "Post-a-Nut" program, and it costs $12 to $20 depending on the size and destination of the coconut. You can wear white after Labor Day because you only need a one-season wardrobe. And Hawaii is the only state in the country that grows Kona coffee. About 900 coffee farms provide farmworkers with Hawaii jobs. If you like what Hawaii offers and don't mind missing out on snakes and billboards, Honolulu is a great place to look for jobs in Hawaii.
Popular Jobs in Hawaii
For people on the U.S. mainland, Hawaii is often thought of as a vacation spot. In fact, tourism is the primary source of income in Hawaii. Those visitors support tourism sectors like transportation, retail, and service jobs.
The tropical climate of the islands is ideal for growing agricultural products not found elsewhere in the states. Pineapple, sugar cane, coffee, and macadamia nuts are some of the products that generate nearly $3 billion for the Hawaii economy and support 42,000 farming jobs. Processing these foods is a huge part of the manufacturing industry in Hawaii and adds production jobs to the economy.
