One on one with the job market


Are you in a job or searching for one? If you already are in an office then this article will mirror directly what you see in the office in your every day routine and if you are searching for a job, you better read this to ensure shock absorption when you get that job you have always wanted. I want to hope that you read our article yesterday about ‘the truth in corporate world’ and if you did not please find it.

At this point you will realize what the world is made up of.

What is it made up of and how do I fit in?

Don’t sweat it especially after…………

  2. The interview panel dismissed your answers by asking other questions while still answering the previous.
  3. The interview panel stopped you at the slightest of attempts to answer a question.
  4. The panel did not smile at any of your responses.

Want a good salary? How to go about it ...


By Juliah Karimi.
Most job seekers in Kenya tread carefully when it comes to asking for more pay. It’s understandable — after the relief of landing a job, negotiating a salary can be the last thing from your mind. I recently got an email question and frankly it has not been the first. So I thought about it and I have gone through the same where I felt I should be earning higher but I really didn’t know the steps.

It can even feel awkward as most Kenyan professionals not used to placing a value on the skills, knowledge and abilities we bring. Once in a while, asking for higher salary can even put you out of the running.
