Guanacaste Job Fair in 4th Year and Expanding

September 19, 2008

Businesses in the tourist, construction and agriculture industries will be recruiting more than 2,000 prospective employees next month during the fourth annual Guanacaste Job Fair.

“All three sectors need workers urgently,” said Mauricio Céspedes, the president of CATURGUA, the Guanacaste Chamber of Tourism. “The most important quality employers are looking for is English speakers.”

The fair is organized by nine different government and business organizations that share the common goal of attracting employees to the Guanacaste province.

“Compared to places like San José, it can be difficult to find skilled workers in Guanacaste,” Céspedes said. He estimates the number of job openings has risen each year.Guanacaste is the only province to host a job fair for four consecutive years. This year’s fair will be the first in the country to attract employers from outside the tourism industry.

“The fair has been expanded to include employers in the construction and agriculture industries,” said Dinorah Calvo, one of the members of the organizing committee.

The fair will take place from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Oct. 4 and 5 at the Mall Centro Plaza Liberia. Admission is free.

Information about local study and work training programs will be available. Job hunters should come equipped with resumes.
