U.S. Sen. Brian Schatz will be staffing his office in the weeks ahead, according to a news release Sunday.

“Getting my office operational and building our team is essential and we’ve made good progress in a very short period of time,” Schatz said.

“We will be receiving resumes of people interested in serving in either our Washington D.C. or Hawai`i offices.  We’re looking for talented, energetic and public-minded people who want to serve their State and their Country,” he said.

Resumes should be sent to: senatorschatz.jobs@gmail.com.

The deadline for receipt of resumes is Friday.  Applicants should indicate whether they are applying for positions in Hawaii, D.C. or both.

Schatz spoke with Sen.-elect Hirono today and the entire delegation will meet as soon as all members are in Washington.

“These are difficult times and it is incredibly important that we unify around what is best for Hawaii and every indication so far is that we are going to be able to do that,” Schatz said.
