Employment Opportunities on Base
Hawaii has one of the lowest unemployment rates in the United States; it means that there are definitely jobs available here. On the other hand, the Hawaii job market is very competitive as the high cost of living creates a great demand for jobs. Minimum wage positions, especially in the tourist related industries, are abundant.

Transition Readiness Program (TRP) provides help to Marines and Sailors who are separating or retiring from the military by offering important information and assistance on how to make a successful transition into civilian life.
TRP counselors assist service members in all areas of transition. One-on-one counseling, instruction, and assistance are available as needed. However, one-on-one counseling does not satisfy the requirement for pre-separation counseling or attendance at the TRP Workshop. It is encouraged that service members reach out to TRP about a year prior to separation to start the process. Waiting until a few months before separation can cause delays because of the high volume of participants. Call the Marine Corps Base Hawaii TRP office at 808-257-7790 or 808-257-7796 for more information.
Unemployment compensation may be available for the spouse of a newly assigned military member or civilian employee. For more information please contact the Hawaii Department of Labor and Industrial Relations.
