Jobs in Central America: Are You Looking?

Looking for job opportunities in Central America? Here, in our latest update, we highlight a company in Panama, Costa Rica, Nicaragua, Honduras, El Salvador, Guatemala, and Belize currently seeking talent.

Much of Central America is taking a day off today, to celebrate the 200th birthdays of Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, and Nicaragua on the 15th. But that doesn’t mean we’re not looking around to see what jobs are out there, long weekend or no long weekend.

On this page, we want to highlight hiring companies in Central America. We hope we can give them a hand with some positive exposure.

We’ll try to cover all seven countries, and we plan to update this article once a week. If you’ve lost your job in the Covid pandemic, feel free to check in with us here.

We can’t cover everything, but we can offer a rough guide, and showcase at least one company from each Central American country every week. If you’re a HR professional wanting to highlight available openings in your company, please contact us.

Let’s get started, south to north, Panama to Belize:
