Two job fairs in coming days will offer opportunities for various types of professionals and bilingual speakers.

The Alajuela Municipality on Thursday will host a job fair where employeers are looking to fill 1,800 vacancies at La Guácima racetrack, northwest of San José.

Twenty companies will be looking to hire staff in areas such as administration, accounting, engineering, English instruction and medical equipment manufacturing, among others.

The fair will run 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. and admission is free. Posts are available to all prospective employees, but companies will prioritize residents of Alajuela and surrounding areas.

The fair will bring together recruiters from 26 companies seeking marketing business administrators, human resource managers, financial analysts, computer engineers, industrial engineers, programmers and many customer service and administrative posts.

Companies mostly will be seeking bilingual hires. Participants include Amazon, Citi, Phillip Morris International, Bridgestone, IBM, Multivex,, Akamai, Unilever, HP, Wyndham Herradura, MC Kinsey, Cinde, Deloitte and Kimberly Clark.

Recruiters at both fairs are asking for resumes preferably in digital format, however some of them also will take print resumes.

It’s the same companies at every job fair. I know of people being layed off at HP why are they going to this job fair. Also Citi say they are hiring but there is talk they might leaving Costa Rica soon.
