JA Kenya work readiness program at Multimedia University
Junior Achievement Kenya (JA Kenya), an NGO initiative implemented to help youth prepare for the global job market, is poised to host a learning and interactive session with Kenyan university students.

JA Kenya invites campus students from various universities in Kenya to the event, at the Multimedia University of Kenya on Friday, 23rd September 2022.

In line with its mission of inspiring and preparing the youths for success in the global economy, JA Kenya offers an opportunity for youth in Kenya to be work-ready and stand out in the competitive global market. This is achieved through our hands-on, experiential, and mentorship programs offered under a work readiness pillar.

Additionally, JA Kenya’s aim in organizing the programs is to help grow the participant’s soft skills including;

  • Problem-solving and learnability
  • Communication
  • Interpersonal and Social skills
  • Hard work
  • Dependability
  • Teamwork
  • Self-Motivation

These skills will complement the hard skills that university students learn in classrooms

Guest Speakers will be Mr. Sammy Wanjala from Citibank Kenya and our main speaker will be Mr. Anthony Kairuki from Corporate Moves Africa. They will give the students a better understanding of how to stand out in the Job market.

Under the mentorship program,  participants are taken through 4 interactive sessions to help package themselves well, not only increase their chances of securing an interview but also guide them on how to prepare for an interview and once at the workplace train them on how they can thrive.

The 4 sessions participants will learn from are; CV Writing & Job Applications, Job Interviews, Work Readiness, and Thriving in the Workplace.
