On Friday, November 7, around 120 students from 19 technical professional high schools in Guanacaste and Upala will show off their qualifications to be future professionals for businesses and public institutions during the Third CORVEC Regional Vocational Fair at the plaza in Recaredo Briceño Park in Nicoya.
Milton Rojas, coordinator of the fair, explained that the goal of the exposition is to show area businesses the quality of the workforce forged by the technical professional high schools (CTPs – Colegios Tecnicos Profesionales).
“We are following up on the idea and spirit of the fair, which is to show the communities of Guanacaste and Nicoya what the technical high schools offer and the huge potential that the kids have once they leave the schools to join the work force,” said Rojas.
Banks, service companies, public institutions and bakeries are a few of the employers who will be in attendance for the fair.
“The idea is that the same companies see that they can turn to the CTPs to meet their personnel needs,” explained Rojas.
Most Sought-After Technical Degrees
The degrees that are most sought-after by companies in Guanacaste are for services such as accounting, secretarial services, tourism, information technology, industrial science, precision mechanics, automotive mechanics and air conditioning.
