Story Text & Photos © 2014 by Dominican Today Apr 24 2014 16:29PM
Dominican Today - Santo Domingo- Salespeople, electricians, maids, waiters, chauffeurs, gardeners and bartenders are some of the country’s most sought after workers in the last four years, well above professionals such as architects, lawyers, chemists, designers and botanists. The list figures among the job vacancies posted in the Electronic Employment Bourse (BEE) of the Labor Ministry’s Employment Agency (DGE), which aims to guide Dominicans toward jobs and supply companies with suitable candidates. Herrera Industries Association (AEIH) president Victor Castro says Dominican talents aren’t being prepared for the tasks that industries demand. “The truth is that in areas such as marketing, law and even some in engineering, lots of students who are specializing, even graduating with masters and doctorates, and finally when they go to get jobs their competency is highly undervalued because they’re trained above the local demand,“ the business leader said.
