Searching for a job just got a little easier, thanks to a new digital hub called the Hawaiʻi Career Acceleration Navigator (HI CAN) at https://hican.hawaii.gov/#/login. The site, launched by the Hawaiʻi Department of Labor and Industrial Relations (DLIR), connects unemployment insurance claimants (UI) and job seekers to promising career pathways. The site allows UI claimants to digitally track their work search requirement. HI CAN also helps those eligible for additional social services to connect to the programs they need.

“We’re pioneering a first-of-its-kind data platform to connect job seekers to careers in our post-pandemic economy,” said Gov. David Ige. “Hawaiʻi is on the cutting edge, using government data for a user-friendly program that creates highly customized job recommendations.” DLIR director Anne Perreira-Eustaquio added, “At the same time, eligible users can get help without sifting through dozens of government links that can lead to confusion and frustration.”
