UoN Office of Career Services (OCS)


The Office of Career Services hosted Janet Rangi, a Kenyan immigrant living in the US helping Kenyans to chase their America dream on Friday 12th July, 2019 at UoN main Campus.

Janet has a new acquired passion for blogging and giving advice to Kenyans who wish to migrate to the US like her. She recently launched a book titled ‘The American Success Pathways” that offers great counsel on how to prepare and go through the visa application process, travel and settling down in America.

In her talk to the UoN Student Career Brand Ambassadors, she highlighted the need for the student leaders to be practical, consistent, hold high standards and be effective time managers.

Ms. Rangi also got an opportunity to talk to students who are in search of internship and job opportunities. She urged any student planning to go to the US in pursuit of opportunities to ensure they excel in their degrees and obtain the necessary certification and registration to relevant professional bodies before travelling to the US.

With her advice through YouTube videos, web articles and blogs, Ms. Rangi offers a different pathway to success for those wishing to migrate to the US. It is hoped that UoN students planning to travel to the US will benefit greatly from Ms. Rangi’s advice.
