CINDE launches modern digital recruitment platform for bilingual talent

MARCH 12th 2018

· 47 companies will seek to fill positions between March 12 and 23.

· Candidates can access from any computer and mobile device.

· Participating companies look for candidates with and without experience without age limit.

San José, March 12, 2018. The Costa Rican Investment Promotion Agency (CINDE), presented its modern digital recruitment platform, in which more than 45 leading multinational companies in the services and manufacturing sectors, as well as recognized recruiters, they will seek to fill 3,800 open positions for the first semester of the year. The main requirement for participants is that they speak a second language.

Job Link is enabled from Monday 12th until Friday March 23rd, with online service 24 hours. Those interested can visit the website from any computer, smartphone or tablet with internet connection, to know the available job offers and apply online.

"Job Link is a first multilingual digital recruitment effort that aims to be an innovative and easy tool for those looking for a quality and well-paid job opportunity in multinational companies in the service, life sciences and manufacturing sectors. which today constitute large employers in our country. It is also part of the digital transformation that CINDE is making of these recruitment initiatives. Candidates can access the platform from anywhere in the country and in the comfort of their home, so we hope to expand the opportunities for Costa Ricans to connect with quality jobs," said Jorge Sequeira, CINDE's Managing Director. 

For Juan Echeverría, Operations Manager of DXC Technology, JobLink is a tool that will allow them to link with the talent they need to continue developing their operations in the country. "We hope to find there the technical, academic and language skills we require, and we hope, too, that the career opportunities we offer will be attractive to the candidates," he added.

Interested users who enter the web platform and who are fluent in English or Portuguese can take the BELT free language test, which is provided by Idioma Internacional, International Language partner.

"We want to find the best human talent that wants to be part of our culture, that wants to be part of our ideal of continuing to build smiles and dreams of continuing to grow. In addition, we want to be able to reach the largest number of active population in the country, to continue recognizing us as a leading employer brand in the market and that, through our large family, many people can have an excellent job opportunity, "said Diana Rodríguez, human resources specialist at Align Technology.

This test will allow companies to know, in advance, the language level of the applicants. All those candidates that apply for positions that require mastering another language, will be interviewed, directly by the companies, later.

According to Erick Villalta, Operations Manager at Dell Costa Rica, this is an opportunity to strengthen their relationship with the national labor market, while allowing the company to find the best qualified talent available today.

The opportunities

When entering, the participants will be asked to register on the web platform so they can know the offers and apply online, by one or several positions.

If any of the applicants participated in the CINDE Job Fair the previous year, they can update their data and enter with the same record.

Those interested must be over 18 years old and must have an identity card, valid residence card or passport to register and apply to any vacancy of interest.

The more than 45 JobLink participating companies are not only looking for personnel who speak several languages -especially English or Portuguese-, but also professionals and technicians with or without experience.

Among the areas of greatest interest for employers stand out: IT and systems, accounting, customer service, finance - financial analysis, software development, technical support, engineering (production, electrical, electronics, electro mechanics, materials mechatronics), administration and business, human resources and sales, among others.
