Costa Rica News – For all you bilingual people out there in Costa Rica with a work permit in Costa Rica, businesses are looking to hire you during the first quarter of this year.
Some 50 national and multinational companies as well as companies in the service sectors, health and education industry are seeking to hire 6,700 bilingual employees for various positions. Unfortunately most of these positions will require a work permit which unless someone is sponsoring you are very hard to obtain.
These businesses will participate in the ninth annual Cinde Job Fair, which will take place on the 8th, 9th and 10th of February 2013 in the Old Customs Building.
In addition to English, there will be opportunities for those who speak Portuguese, Mandarin, German, Dutch, French and Japanese.
The activity is organized by the Costa Rican Coalition for Development Initiatives (Cinde), in alliance with Grupo Nación.
“Companies participating in Job Fair Cinde are leaders in high-tech sectors as well as recruiting companies seeking candidates for different companies,” said Gabriela Llobet, director of Cinde.
In addition to English as a second language, candidates must possess leadership, problem management, teamwork and assertive communication skills.
Admission to the event is free. The hours are from 9 am to 5 pm Friday the 8th and on Saturday the 9th February and Sunday the 10th, the hours will be from 10 am to 4 pm
Companies will receive all documents in digital format and could conduct interviews on the spot.
This year, among the 50 participants will be signing Citi Shared Services, which will provide 800 jobs for a financial services center, which opened for operation in the country in 2008.
