How to get & retain a job in Kenya.


By Chris Kirubi. 

As a Kenyan and regional employer, I must admit that one of the biggest challenges we face in the Kenyan job market is employee retention. The truth is this; a business cannot amount to much nor achieve much without excellent human capital. So, how do we keep our people engaged? How do we retain them in the face of thriving competition that threatens to poach your very best?

Back in my day, we were adequately persuaded with financial incentives. You either got a hefty salary increment, or a sizable commission. The larger the financial increment, the more likely the company was to retain the high performers. However, in a work era where employees aspire to more than just financial satisfaction, it is no longer enough nor acceptable to conduct business in such a manner. Not unless you want to fail.

‘What are your weaknesses?’ The dos and don’ts.


This question will always be on any interview that you attend. It is one of the toughest, yet most important questions asked during a job interview. You need to learn how to prepare for an interview and answer this question with our professional advice and videos. 

It is one of those questions that is tricky because it can send the interviewers the wrong way or the right one. This is a question that is an attitude creator. How you respond to it is very important because it can easily create a wrong impression of you.

Winning in an interview – The tone of the voice.


Have you heard a person complain about not liking the tone of one’s speech? Are there people you talk to and can compliment you but you can easily take it the wrong way because of their tone? Have you ever taken time to listen to the tone of your speech? In my practice, I have heard many interviewers complain of an interviewee being rude. But if you investigate, it is the tone of their speech and well they didn’t intend to be rude. 

You need to know that an interview is similar in a way to a tune. The lyrics are the content of the interviewee's responses and the music is the tone of voice used. Certain songs may have an optimistic empowering effect or contrarily may be melancholy and blue.
