Hire Our Graduates

When employers hire Goodwill program graduates, they acquire skilled, reliable workers – and much more.  They build a meaningful relationship with the community, and empower individuals to become a positive asset and build presence in the workforce. By hiring Goodwill program graduates, employers contribute to the overall well-being and economic stability and vibrancy of our state.


SEE Hawaii Work - How Goodwill Can Help Your Business!

Supporting Employment Empowerment (SEE) is an innovative program available to Hawaii’s employers to assist them with their recruiting needs.

The SEE program will send prescreened SEE applicants that meet the needs the employer has specified for the employer to interview. SEE applicants are available for immediate hire; there is no waiting period or processes that SEE requires prior to meeting the employer’s hiring needs. SEE applicants can be placed in vacant positions, or in newly created positions.

  • Save time and money on the advertising, recruitment and training of new employees.
  • Receive added tax benefits for hiring persons with various barriers to employment.
  • Immediate access to qualified, well-trained, work-ready candidates without all the advertising and recruiting expenses.
  • If our referral does not meet your needs, we will provide another qualified candidate in a timely manner.
