UNIVERSITY OF NAIROBI

Office of Career Services

The University of Nairobi is committed to producing holistic graduates who are prepared for the job market and entrepreneurial activities. It’s estimated that of all the graduates who graduate from the Universities, less than 10 per cent are absorbed in the job market. It’s against this background that the Ministry of Education through the State Department of Post Training and Skills Development launched the Office of Career Services (OCS) in 2019 to take care of students skills development, job placement, linking students with industry, academic advisory services, career testing and assessment, career fairs, venture capital fairs, counseling services, graduate tracking services, high school recruitments, students exchange, apprenticeship services, alumni networking, mentorship services, internship and improving the students life in campus among other services. The goal is to increase graduates absorption in the market from the current less than 10 per cent to over 50 per cent and creating over 1000 start ups in the next five years (2018-2023) by developing the “Future Ready Graduates”

Omondi Evans

My name “Omondi Evans, a 4th year student of Economics and Statistics at The University of Nairobi, Main Campus. Am so much grateful to the Office of Career Services for connecting me to Solar Panda Company where I was invited for an interview in September 2019 and managed to be considered for an internship from October 2019 till date. I work as a Customer Service Representative, in which my roles entail calling and receiving calls from the company’s customers to help them in matters pertaining their Solar kits. This opportunity has helped me a great deal as I am able to cater for my personal needs and also pay for my University fees.  Always grateful to the Office of Career Services, May God continue blessing that office to continue helping more students

 “My name is Mercy Terer, a student at Kikuyu campus awaiting graduation. I applied for an internship late 2019 through the Office of Career Services. I was called for an interview in January 2020 which I attended and succeeded.  I am happy the exposure at Solar Panda has given me a feel of the job market and has helped me get money which I am using to undertake a post graduate diploma and pay for my bills.  Solar Panda is a diverse organization. My duties include but are not limited to; Customer service assistance, follow up calls, approving sales, and trouble shooting. It gives me immense pleasure when customers are satisfied with my services. Working at Solar Panda has equipped me with Communication, interpersonal, customer care skills and the ability to work under pressure. I am greatly indebted to the UoN Office of Career Services for gifting me with a platform to start my career journey."
