Job Search Resources

Relatively few means exist for searching and identifying job opportunities in Nicaragua. Job/professional talent fairs, particularly multilingual ones, are not very common, and because of Nicaragua’s low Internet penetration level (15.5 percent, far below the 44.1 percent average for the region that includes Central America, Panama and Mexico), the Internet is not a primary source for employment information in Nicaragua, and online tools are not particularly common. Most local daily and weekly newspapers (chiefly La Prensa) publish job opportunities with various degrees of quality and in different quantities on Sundays and Mondays. Other major sites, including INCAE Business School's page, are internal Intranet sites that post many positions before they are published in newspapers and job pools.
