10,000 Positions Available At "Mega Job Fair" in San Miguelito

Employment & JobsYesterday the fourth "Job Mega Fair" made more than 10,000 job openings in private companies available to Panamanians, said President Ricardo Martinelli, who toured this event held in the parking lots of the bus station in San Miguelito. The president said the companies are taking advantage of the country's economic growth, so therefore then need to recruit human resources, and the Panamanian people have to take advantage of the opportunities. 138 private companies participated in the fair where they presented offers for various vacancies in work areas. The event was attended by 2,334 people. The government of Panama has placed more than 25,000 employees in different jobs at these kinds of fairs in the past three years. (Critica)

Editor's Comment: This is actually a "bad news" article. There are 10,000 openings available just at this job fair. Only 2,334 people showed up, and most of them are already working somewhere else. They just wanted to see what was available, to see if they could jump from one company to another to improve their position, pay, benefits, or what have you. So, there are still many more jobs available than there are people to fill them. This is not good for a hot and growing economy. It's nice that there's now practically zero unemployment (or full employment) in Panama, however if there there no more people, then the economy cannot continue to expand. Need more warm bodies, quickly... I've been saying it for years, something's gotta give. Thanks for reading this article. Now, do NOT send me your damn resume...

Don
How well is the new permanent residency visa doing in bringing skilled foreigners ( I assume Spain has many that are looking for a job) to Panama to fill needed positions?
