It consisted of 30 companies in the service and manufacturing sector looking to hire for 2,500 positions. Over 10,000 new users registered and 3,807 updated their data from previous fairs. On average, each applicant applies for seven positions.
8,519 people took the BELT English test. 64% of them scored an intermediate or advanced level. 632 people took the Portuguese PIP test, with 94% of them having a basic or intermediate level.
While the fair is now closed, similar job opportunities will be published on the Facebook page, Cinde Jobs. There are often jobs in administration, accounting, computer science, graphic design, quality, logistics, human resources, marketing, customer service and sales.
