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.

One of the more devastating affects of the pandemic (and a major argument against lockdown and restrictions) has been unemployment. All over the world, millions of people have lost their jobs, across all economies, from highly-developed industrial economies to those of the developing world, like here in Central America.

In the developing world, the impact has been all the harder, as countries find themselves unable to support their citizens. You don’t get unemployment benefit in Central America, for example.

But as we near the end of this thing, it’s time to think about getting back to work. To that end, we want to highlight companies in Central America who are starting to hire again. 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. So 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.
