Ask if you can email your resume for review and be considered for these jobs.

      I actually moved to Hawaii when I was a young man just to experience it. After a couple of months and studying the area I got my pedi-cab license. This was a great way to work in downtown waikiki and make very good money at the time. I do think that pedi-cabs have been limited to certain areas now but who knows. At the time we made $1.00 per minute for riders and this was quite some time ago. I love the hub on Hawaii and think anyone who is willing to take a risk should just go for it.
