An annual bilingual job fair held by the Costa Rican Investment Promotion Agency, or CINDE, will offer 3,800 jobs at 48 businesses from Feb. 20-22 at the Antigua Aduana in downtown San José.

Foreign companies in life sciences, light manufacturing and services are looking for workers who are fluent in English, Italian, Portuguese, French, German or Chinese, according to a statement from CINDE. Participating companies include Citi, Boston Scientific, VMWare, Cargill, Brightstar, Emerson, and Thomson Reuters, among others.

Job seekers interested in attending should pre-register at www.cindejobfair2015.com, where applicants can fill out their experience and interests electronically. Pre-registered applicants need not bring paper résumés to the fair. English and Portuguese speakers are advised to complete the free BELT exam online as a reference for job scouts during the fair.
