Hawaii jobs outlook improving in construction; hospitality

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - As Hawaii rebounds from the recession, we're learning which careers are in demand. Two of Hawaii's top industries saw growth in the latest jobs report after a big drop in March. Construction expanded by 1,200 from April to May, although the market is volatile and we're still down from May of last year.

The leisure and hospitality field also increased, up just 100 jobs from April, but it's the fourth straight month numbers have gone up. Employment in arts and entertainment were down, but that was balanced by increasing work in the accommodation and food services area.
