UH College of Engineer Career Expo, Spring 2024

The University of Hawaii (UH) College of Engineering (COE) Career Expo – Spring 2024 was held on February 23rd at the Campus Center. Click here for the Spring ’24 Career Expo Guide.

HAPI was there to spread the word about our asphalt industry and the various career opportunities. Our “Career Opportunities” flyer (see at the end of this post) lists jobs at HAPI member companies. In addition, upon learning of a student’s interest, we sometimes escort or direct them to the appropriate member’s table.

To attract students to our table we had a game that offered a chance to win a $25 gift card. The students could picked from a pool of nine questions about their university and the asphalt paving industry. If the student answer it correctly, they were entered into a drawing for the gift card. The recipient of the gift card is Czarina Viloria.

One of the nine questions: For the City and County of Honolulu, a lane mile is one mile long by how wide?
– The total width of all lanes going in the same direction
– 10 feet
– 11 feet
– 12 feet
