Secretary of labor warns of low job opportunities this time of year

Cancun, Q.R. — The secretary of labor of Quintana Roo says people intending to move to the state need to arrive prepared since jobs are hard to come by this time of year.

Enoel Perez, delegate of the Secretary of Labor, explains that from September to mid-December, people who arrive to Cancun or Riviera Maya looking for a job will have difficulty finding one due to the region’s low season.

He says that although Quintana Roo is one of the five states in the country that generates more jobs, the flow of available work decreases significantly during this low season. He explained that, contrary to the high season months, during this quarter, lodging centers and tourist companies hardly hire staff.

Perez explained that people are hired around the time of the next holiday season, which is November. During the high season, “People leave their job application and two days later, they get a job,” he said.

He reiterated that people who intend to move to the Mexican Caribbean during these months need to prepare for the situation since it will take a little longer to find a job. Perez says that something that characterizes Quintana Roo is quality training, which is required by tourism employers.
