San José, Costa Rica — The Universidad Hispanoamericana (UH) is thrilled to host the “FERIA EMPLEATE UH 2024” today, July 3, promising a day brimming with opportunities for job seekers across Costa Rica.

This highly anticipated employment fair, held at the UH Llorente de Tibás campus, features more than 25 esteemed national and multinational companies ready to engage with prospective candidates. Running from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., the event underscores UH’s commitment to fostering economic reactivation and providing its students, graduates, and the wider community with pathways to formal and competitive employment.

With over 3,000 job openings available, the fair targets a diverse range of profiles, including operational, administrative, technical, and professional roles. This initiative highlights UH’s dedication to bridging economic gaps and promoting equality by equipping individuals with the necessary skills and opportunities to succeed in today’s job market. Attendees will have the chance to interact with company representatives, gather information, and participate in on-the-spot interviews, significantly enhancing their employment prospects.

The event also features an impressive lineup of educational sessions aimed at boosting employability and personal development:

  • Starting at 9:00 a.m., the inaugural talk on “Empleabilidad 2024-2025: Estrategia Institucional” will feature insights from the Ministry of Economy, Industry, and Commerce (MEIC) and the Ministry of Labor and Social Security (MTSS-ANE). This session promises to provide attendees with valuable perspectives on institutional strategies for enhancing employability in the coming years.
  • In addition to the inaugural talk, two prominent workshops will be offered. At 10:00 a.m., Marinet Delgado Bolivar will lead a session on personal branding and its importance in increasing job opportunities.
  • Later, at 2:00 p.m., Francisco Santolo of SCALABL will present on the power of networking and social capital in achieving professional success. Both workshops are designed to equip participants with actionable strategies and insights, further enhancing their career readiness.

A standout feature of the fair is the array of free services available to attendees, including English proficiency tests and PDA assessments. These resources, coupled with stands dedicated to continuing education and health promotion, reflect UH’s holistic approach to supporting the personal and professional growth of its community.

This comprehensive support underscores the university’s philosophy that education extends beyond the classroom, encompassing every aspect of an individual’s development.

Costa Rica’s emergence as a hub for international companies is closely tied to its skilled workforce, particularly in the fields of English language proficiency and STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics). The country’s strategic emphasis on bilingual education and technical training has made it an attractive destination for global firms seeking knowledgeable and versatile employees. This trend is reflected in the participation of numerous multinational companies at the FERIA EMPLEATE UH 2024, eager to tap into the talent pool that Costa Rica offers.

The presence of these international companies not only provides employment opportunities but also stimulates economic growth and innovation within the country. By investing in local talent, these firms contribute to the development of a more dynamic and competitive economy. This symbiotic relationship underscores the importance of events like the FERIA EMPLEATE UH 2024, which serve as vital platforms for connecting job seekers with potential employers and fostering a thriving job market.

The FERIA EMPLEATE UH 2024 is more than just a job fair; it is a beacon of opportunity and growth for Costa Rica. It exemplifies how education, industry, and government can collaborate to create a robust and inclusive employment landscape.

As Costa Rica continues to position itself as a preferred destination for international companies, initiatives like this fair play a crucial role in ensuring that its workforce remains skilled, adaptable, and ready to meet the challenges of a globalized economy.
