Costa Rica: Shortage of Telco Specialists for Cell Phone Market
More professionals and technicians are needed to meet demand for specialists with the opening of the country's mobile telephony sector.
Monday, September 27, 2010
The shortage was envisaged by specialists consulted by El Financiero. They believe that the current supply of cell phone market professionals and technical experts will not be sufficient to cover the demand created by the market opening, both in terms of the number of specialists, years of experience and their level of expertise.
Last year at least 82 IT companies lost a total of $72 million because they lack some 2,300 computer technicians and professionals.
In Costa Rica there are currently more than 400 people employed in this sector, with a reported unmet demand for another 3000.
The market demands more IT professionals than available, and the problem is expected to grow.
The speed with which the Panamanian economy is developing is demanding skilled labour which, at the moment, the country is unable to supply.
