Job fair slated for Wednesday at Roberto Clemente Coliseum
By The Star Staff
The job fair “Work Close to You,” an initiative of the Department of Labor and Human Resources (DTRH by its Spanish initials), will be held Wednesday at Roberto Clemente Coliseum in Hato Rey with 4,000 vacancies available for citizens seeking a new professional opportunity.
The DTRH secretary noted that, although the most recent statistics on the island reflect a historic increase in the number of people employed, industries and employers are constantly in need of recruitment in service or specialized areas.
“This fair is an extraordinary project with which we have impacted thousands of citizens,” Labor Secretary Gabriel Maldonado González said in a written statement. “On this occasion, those attending … will also receive job training and resume preparation workshops, valuable tools in the face of the unprecedented changes that the market has faced with the digitization of services, the pandemic, and the generational changes that are taking place.”
Companies from industries such as insurance, recruitment, pharmacy, hospitality, security, restaurants, non-profit institutions, telephony, sales and maintenance are just some of the more than 70 employers that will be part of the event that will take place from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
To participate, it is mandatory to wear a mask. Likewise, candidates are urged to bring their updated resume and photo identification. For more information, call 787-645-7900, extension 2218, or write to firstname.lastname@example.org.
