This will be held in the auditorium of La Lonja in Orihuela city. The activity will take place over two days and it will involve a number of guests of agencies and companies that have an active role in the job search market. In addition, there will be round tables and conferences.

The third course will focus on customer service in the tourism sector in the area of Orihuela and will be held in November whilst in December there will be a business management course aimed at teaching sales skills. Gallud said that he will shortly be announcing the registration details.
