Costa Rica seeks to enhance the human resources of the tourism industry
The Costa Rican Tourism Institute and the Costa Rican Association of Tourism Professionals launched a job bank to unite companies and applicants
“One of the most painful effects of this crisis is unemployment and it is precisely for this reason that the ICT and ACOPROT joined forces to link thousands of people in the tourism sector who are looking for work with economic sectors with the possibility of hiring; My expectation is that this platform will help people in this condition find a job that is appropriate to their personal abilities, ”said Gustavo J. Segura, Rector Minister of Tourism.
The registration of companies and bidders in the digital platform "Jobs in Tourism" is free and is available at the link www.acoprot.org/bolsa_empleo/. In it, companies will find 24 different categories to register, ranging from airlines to universities / institutes through accommodation, maintenance, rent-a-car and translators, call centers, among others.
The President of ACOPROT, Erasmo Rojas said that with the pandemic thousands of tourism collaborators were unemployed and are very active looking for new job opportunities.
“We believe that thanks to this job bank, relaunched in partnership with the ICT, it will be a concrete space, in which the thousands of workers with extensive experience and high specialization can take advantage of job opportunities so that they begin to emerge from a recovery in the sector, ”said Rojas.
"Jobs in Tourism" is an electronic platform for people to register their resume and thereby explore matching vacancies. In turn, companies can register to place their vacancies and thereby explore matching occupational profiles and make evaluations according to the recruiter's criteria.
The job board announcement was made via Facebook Live on the ICT profile. In the activity, the operation of this tool was explained and the talk "Employability strategies in the face of the challenges of the new normal" was given by Max Santamaría and Nubia Méndez from the company Adwise Corporate Advisory.
