Companies in the services sector are starting the second half of the year with good hiring prospects. Three of them this week announced they are offering a total of 900 jobs for interpreters and professionals in business administration and information technology.

Business services company Concentrix announced Monday that it is hiring 700 people to expand its operations in the capital San José. The company is looking for professionals in business administration with specializations in recruitment, financial analysis and quality management.

Concentrix is also offering jobs for account supervisors, operations managers, customer service representatives and technical support agents fluent in English, French, German and Spanish.

Job applications can be filed on the company’s website. You also can submit a printed resume at the company’s offices in Pavas near the U.S. Embassy or at the America Free Zone in Heredia, Building D-20. Resumes must include copies of all degrees or diplomas, two letters of recommendation and a photograph.

IT professionals

U.S. software development company Gorilla Logic is also expanding its operations in Costa Rica and plans to hire 100 IT professionals. Recruiters are looking for engineers with experience in software development to work with U.S. companies.

Candidates must have experience developing in Java, Javascript, QA Automation, native and hybrid mobile development on iOS and Android platforms, and also in DevOps.

Recruiters will interview candidates next Wednesday, July 27 at the Hilton Garden Inn Hotel in La Sabana starting at 6 p.m. Pre-registration is required on the company’s website and resumes must be sent to jobs.costarica@gorillalogic.com

Interpreters

The Costa Rican Investment Promotion Agency (CINDE) announced that Lionbridge Technologies, Inc. is hiring 100 people for its interpretation services division.

The hiring means the company will double its staff in Costa Rica, one of the 27 countries where it currently operates.

Recruiters in the next two months will offer jobs for bilingual (English – Spanish) staff with a high command of both languages. Candidates with command of a third language and experience in interpretation will be given preference, CINDE reported.

Job applicants must have access to a landline and will be evaluated for their interpretation skills. Those selected for a contract will be able to work remotely, and the company offers various schedule options.

Those interested can apply online on the company’s website.

CINDE General Director Jorge Sequeira said the number of international companies in the services sector here has grown dynamically in the past 15 years, to nearly 400 companies today.
