HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - If you are looking to change careers or simply need a job the Neal Blaisdell Center was the place to be Wednesday. It was Hawaii's oldest and largest job fair.

The job fair featured more than 105 prospective employers. The state's unemployment rate continues to be just below seven percent.

Organizers say, there are jobs out there and for the first time they unveiled a new virtual tool to find them. Its called Job Quest.

"You can go home where ever you have internet, in a more relaxed place. Look more at the employer, what to do to apply and what you need to do to get on with that company" said job fair director Beth Busch.

Among the employers attending today was the Census Bureau, which is looking for 10,000 candidates to fill 2,000 to 3,000 part and full time jobs. You can also use the virtual search engine at home.
