Welcome to our Investigative Research team and to our company, Ka Hui Ho'okolokolo.
We are excited that you have joined us as an intern. In the next six weeks, you will learn and apply research techniques, prepare documents, and create and deliver presentations for our clients. These assignments may take you out of your comfort zone and push you to think in new ways; however, we are certain that the excitement of solving these challenges will more than make up for the difficulties you might encounter.
We expect each of you to make the clients' needs your priority by contributing to your team and producing quality, finished products on time. Ka Hui Ho'okolokolo has worked hard to develop a reputation for excellence, and we are currently the industry leader in investigative reporting. Within the next five years, we hope to be the industry leader in the Pacific region, and you are an integral part of helping us reach that goal.
