Nearly 1,000 people showed up at the Ahnvee Resort & Sports Feria de Empleo October 2016 in Sosua, Dominican Republic. Hours before the doors opened, a line of anxious job seekers formed around the corner of the Salon de Convenciones Sosua Bay.

“We were very pleased with the attendance of our first job fair. With so much talent to choose from, it’s going to be difficult to make our selections,” exclaims Al Boatright, VP of Marketing at Ahnvee Resort & Sports. “We’re looking forward to welcoming the most qualified candidates to the Ahnvee family.”

Ahnvee Resort & Sports will be hiring over 200 people in all positions. Boasting 5-star quality, 144 suites, and 3 restaurants, there has not been a job fair of this magnitude seen in Sosua. People were still arriving when the doors to the fair closed at 5pm. Ahnvee excutives interviewed the last candidate at 8:15pm.

“The only disappointment is we didn’t have time to interview more people,” says Boatright.
