Are you a Social Media Specialist that wants to work on Oahu, Hawaii?

There are plenty of companies making big money on the Hawaiian Islands. Hotels and resorts, travel companies, and more. Many companies need social media experts to run their online campaigns. If you’ve wanted to go to Oahu and work in social media, but couldn’t find a job – here’s one just listed. Check it out and see if you qualify.

Thing is – you need not get this job… there are others. I just wanted to show you that decent jobs exist in Hawaii, but many times the company hiring won’t put the salary. This one shows you you can have $50K, and probably more. To be honest – $50K is probably fair for this job, but, you could take it with the agreed upon rate increase to $55K in 6 months and $60K in a year. Make sure to ask what their cap is for the position, so you don’t think you’ll be making $80K in two years, when it caps out at $60K.

About the Author:

Moving to Hawaii was one of the most amazing moves ever. I strongly encourage you to consider it if you're in the financial position to make it work. Living in Hawaii has a fair bit of both positive and negative experiences awaiting each of us who give it a try. Read some of the articles here and try to get a feel for whether you might thrive in the islands. I wrote an entire book on the subject and it's usually less than $5. It's up there on the right side column. Best of luck and life to you! Aloha! - Vern L.
