    Mayoral candidate Rick Blangiardi made an appearance prior to the first election result print out at the Alohilani Resort Waikiki Beach.

Those interested in applying for top executive positions with Honolulu Mayor-elect Rick Blangiardi’s administration have until Wednesday to submit their applications.

Applications, cover letters and resumes for the appointed positions are being accepted through the Blangiardi transition team’s official job portal at http://transition2021.honolulu.gov.

Blangiardi, who won election earlier this month, is set to take over from current Mayor Kirk Caldwell on Jan. 2.

Applications are being taken now only for the jobs of 19 city agency directors, 15 deputy directors and three executive assistants.

“We want to make sure we haven’t missed anyone before moving on to the next phase of interviewing select candidates at the conclusion of the application process,” Blangiardi said, in a release.

Applicants should receive confirmations acknowledging receipt of their submissions. Those who don’t receive confirmation should either resubmit their applications through the portal, or send their cover letters (which should include the positions they are seeking) and resumes to the official transition team email address at blangiardi2021@gmail.com.

Only candidates selected for an interview will be contacted, the transition team said. All applications are to be kept confidential.
