55 companies to offer 3,000 bilingual jobs at upcoming CINDE fair


The upcoming CINDE job fair will offer opportunities for students looking for part-time work.

The 10th edition of the CINDE Job Fair, held Feb. 21-23 at the Antigua Aduana facilities in downtown San José, will feature 55 companies seeking to hire thousands of bilingual workers.

The Costa Rican Investment Promotion Agency (CINDE) is organizing the event, which will be free to the public.

Companies will be seeking bilingual staff for both technical and professional posts in several areas such as accounting, finance, management, engineering, human resources, software development, technical support, customer service and sales.

Candidates should have proficiency in English, German, Portuguese, Italian, French or Mandarin, among others.

Companies will accept only digital résumés, preferably in two pages or less, CINDE representative Vanessa Gibson said.

Many of the jobs offer flexible schedules and are good opportunities for people wanting to work and study.

The job fair takes place from 8 a.m.-5 p.m. on Friday and Saturday and from 8 a.m.-4 p.m. on Sunday.

Idioma Internacional will also have a booth set up at the fair, so please stop by and say hi!

We will be providing a free Business English Level Test (BELT) for all fair-goers. It is a 3-part test (language use, reading, listening) and takes 60 minutes. Results are emailed directly to the test taker in addition to having their name/results on a database that the 55 companies at the fair can have access to.
