Costa Rica News – One of the biggest questions that runs through the minds of people packing up their bags and headed to Costa Rica is what jobs are available and where can they find those jobs. There are several places to find Costa Rica jobs.
The most popular are La Nacion, the national Spanish newspaper which usually has some classifieds in English. Craigslist lists a lot of jobs for expats as well online but watch out as their are a lot of scams on that. Finally are job fairs where you can meet a huge number of companies on one day. They will sometimes interview on the spot for the positions.
A total of 50 national multinational companies and national service sectors including education and medicine provide are searching for 6,700 bilingual staff jobs in a Costa Rica job fair.
The ninth annual Cinde Job Fair is the only Costa Rica job fair specialized in recruiting bilingual staff. It will be held from the 8th to 10th of February at the Old Customs House in San Jose.
Companies will be hiring employees who speak English, as well as Portuguese, Mandarin, German, Dutch, French and Japanese.
The fair is organized by the Costa Rican Development Initiative (Cinde), which specializes in attracting investment to Costa Rica.
This fair is a great way to get out there and talk to some of the top companies in Costa Rica. Although having conversational Spanish is a bonus, there is the possibility of finding employment at some of these companies for only English speakers. Some of these companies require a work permit to gain employment in Costa Rica.
I was told once that you never know what is out there until you go and look, this is an opportunity to get out there and embark on a new professional adventure in your life. What do you have to lose?
