Monday, February 15, 2021. San José, Costa Rica. Between March and June 2021, Fujitsu will expand its Costa Rican operations with 60 new jobs.
For this reason, the Japanese technology company, which launched its Costa Rican operations in 2006, will hold a virtual job fair through its social networks, beginning on February 15.
Fujitsu is a global digital transformation company offering a broad and comprehensive range of IT products, solutions, and services. It employs more than 140,000 people worldwide and operates a diverse portfolio of comprehensive services and solutions relevant to the market.
These newest available positions are in customer service (Service Desk Agents). Among other application requirements, applicants must have intermediate-advanced English (B2 or higher) and, in some cases, intermediate-advanced Portuguese (B2 or higher). Though it is not an essential requirement, the company will also consider whether candidates have prior experience in technical support and customer service.
To compete for any of the positions, interested applicants should stay tuned to posts on the company’s social networks (Facebook: @FujitsuCostaRica and Instagram: @fujitsucostarica). In this way, Fujitsu plans to gradually share new vacancies and information on how to apply directly to each opening.
“We are very pleased to be undergoing this stage of growth, which also offers stable employment at a company as established as Fujitsu. Our clients trust in our ability to locate the best talent in the country; that is why we have adapted all our recruitment procedures according to the new reality, in which virtual connectivity is predominant. With our job fair, we hope to facilitate the application process for those who seek the opportunity to join our company,” commented José Morales, Manager of Human Resources at Fujitsu.
Andrés Valenciano, Minister of Foreign Trade, further observed: “This announcement is an excellent example of how trade and investment act as driving forces behind our economic development, in the form of formal employment, growing and diversified exports, production chains, and knowledge transfer. For this and other reasons, we welcome this news with great enthusiasm and thank Fujitsu for the trust placed in our country and the faith in Costa Rica’s resources. We reiterate our commitment to continued innovation and to creating the necessary conditions for more companies to carry out their operations and contribute to socio-economic development in Costa Rica.”
He finished, "We vehemently urge Costa Ricans to participate in this virtual job fair and to take advantage, safely, of the opportunity to acquire new knowledge."
Jorge Sequeira, the Managing Director of CINDE, added: "As of September 2020, exports of knowledge-intensive services totaled US$3.747 billion. The work of Fujitsu Costa Rica is reflected in this figure, contributing to the dynamic exports in corporate services and information and communication technologies. Likewise, the work carried out by the company’s more than 300 employees offers an example of Costa Rica’s human talent and multilingualism, providing services in English, Spanish, French and Portuguese.”
Fujitsu's recruitment process will be 100% virtually and the jobs offered will be for telecommuting positions that cover a range of schedules.
