Mary is just a regular Kanya girl, but a really smart one. She tries her best to live a responsible life right from her early years.
When she gained admission into the university no one was surprised because "it is Mary" so everyone kind of expected it. Mary was the mark of success that many people pointed to. Throughout her years in the university, everything went on smooth for her, and finally she graduated with a Second Class Upper degree. She was happy and so was everyone.
Now, it is time for Mary to move on to the next stage of her life...she started hunting for jobs. One month passed, two months, 6 months, and Mary can't seem to find a job. After one year, she decided to start searching for jobs online, but the story was not any different.
Now Mary said to herself: "Maybe I am not doing something right" (she wondered).
Then she decided to speak with different HR professionals, attend career fairs and meet-ups to find out what she is doing wrong. She did everything they asked her to do, but she is still yet to get a job. Right now, Mary is at the brink of being FRUSTRATED.
Just like Mary, have you been searching for a job, but you are yet to find one?
According to research, 1.22 millions young people in Kenya are unemployed. Shocking statistics right? What appears to be numbers and statistics to people may be the reality that you are experiencing at the moment.
You must have gone to re-write all your wrongs (updated your CV to meet the latest standard, updated your cover letter, prepared for interviews, etc.).
After doing all of these, you have still not been able to land a job, not even an interview invite (phew!).
Now, you start to think that the universe is against your landing a job or it is the people that you have wronged in the past. You cannot tell. Well, who knows, when every attempt that you have made to land a job has yielded nothing
What else could you be doing wrong?
The truth is that you have not been able to land a job not because you are doing something wrong.
With the changes that have affected the world of work in Kenya and the stiff competition for an available job, you need more than a shiny CV to land a job.
"Haa!, my CV is not enough? What else could they possibly want?"
Do you know that one attractive job advert attracts at least 250 applications?
Does this mean there will be job candidates far more qualified than you are applying for the same role? Yes!
That is why your CV may not be enough.
I understand that the job search process can be a tiring one. The good news is that: with the right approach, you would be able to stand out amongst other job seekers.
The best approach is to make yourself visible to employers.
"Not again, but how can I do that?"
