About the Expo

  • The Kapolei Chamber of Commerce working in partnership with Kamehameha Schools, UH West O'ahu and the Dept. of Education is excited to host the 4rd Annual West O'ahu Student Career Expo. 
  • Previously the Expo hosted 9th graders from James Campbell High School and Kapolei High School. We are excited to announce that Nanakuli High School and Intermediate, Waianae High School and Island Pacific Academy will also be participating this year! There will be FIVE (5) schools in attendance!
  • The West O'ahu Student Career Expo is an event that is integrated with and supports the 9th grade students as they focus on career exploration and the skills and attitudes necessary for success.
  • Students will come to the career expo poised to visit three different businesses and will come prepared with questions to ask when speaking with their businesses of choice.
  • We are asking for your participation as a business represented at the Student Career Expo so that students will be able to visit your booth prepared to ask appropriate questions and learn about the business.

Please note: This is not a job or hiring fair, nor is it a recruitment opportunity,

It is an opportunity to share your career field opportunities with the students as they explore their future career paths.
