Job application where they are not recruiting

This is probably the first thing you will think of immediately after you finish higher learning. Locally we normally hear people talking of ‘dropping my CVs’ or ‘tarmac king’ and you may think this is only common among first time job seekers but wait till you get your first job, you will realize that this is common industry practice. Whether you have a job or don’t, this article is meant for you. While looking for a job you may want to give your CV to a friend or two who work in a specific company that you want to work for. So are you looking for a career or job opportunity? Is the career of your dreams eluding you? 

Job Searching or Career Change?

Such a situation may arise if you are without a job at the moment. It could also be that circumstances at your present job are driving you mad, and you just can't wait for a career change. People in such stages of their career often have the notion that the more jobs they apply for, the better are their chances of success in their job search. But there is a catch: is it worth applying to employers who are not recruiting at the moment? It is a question that haunts many desperate job seekers. 

Interview blunders you should always avoid

In this world everything is about perception and marketers can tell you this very well. I have a brother of my friend who works at KCB as a training manager although he has an MBA in Marketing and he tells me that marketing is about changing or enhancing perception which are focused on influencing the consumption behaviors of our targets. An interview is not different because the perception that you leave behind is very important and thus you should endeavor to market yourself as good as possible.

In this exercise of marketing, it is very easy to find yourself making a few mistakes here and there. The first opportunity you get to create a good impression is the three-second handshake that starts the interview. An ineffective handshake can spoil your image. A limp hand shake can give the impression of disinterest or weakness. Make the handshake short and firm to give out a positive message. We have always advised towards this. Please look at our earlier articles.

By all odds, check the following common blunders:

The inner person…his role in getting a job.

Psychologists say that there is more to a person than the physical outlook. Most people don’t know that they are made of more than flesh and the moment you realize that then you become an enigma immediately. To define it in simple terms, an inner person is the voice within, the whisper in everything you do and to Christians it is known as the spirit. This part of the human nature is very influential and determines your future. In other word instinct is very important in anything you do. I suppose you have watched the movie, ‘the secret’ or read the novel. To some sects within our Christian community don’t seem to agree with this theory but you become what you think. The more positive you think, the more positive things turn out for you. Assume that you have been invited for an interview and you are pessimistic or negative about nailing the job, trust me you can’t nail it.

Choosing the right shoes to a job interview

Have you ever heard that ladies asses a man first by the kind of shoes he is wearing? Fact is that a shoe is a very important part of our dressing. I know as a job seeker you may not have much of a choice but if you can afford or spare a few coins, please heed to our advice on this subject matter. Just imagine an interviewer walking in limping because his/ her shoes pinch or if one of the interviewers’ shoes is showing his finger? It will be very uncomfortable for you as an interviewee. It will be even worse if the opposite was to take place. You need to be careful as we have said before on impression.

In an interview you need to choose shoes that are very comfortable but they necessarily have to follow the following general guidelines:

The secrets, do’s and don’ts of interviews: ‘Are you a team player and do you work well with others?’

Human beings are very social creatures or so they say. In almost all interviews your characteristics towards a group or team environment will be called upon once or twice. Some few questions may lead towards the way you behave towards a team. So the big question is, ‘how do you behave around a team?’ This is not only applicable to those in the job market already but also to fresh job seekers at entry level. Back in college or university, there were group assignments and believe me, this will be very important.

In your CV, what will you list as your achievements especially if you came straight from college? What will you cite as an example of where you demonstrated that you can work with others? In almost every position you will find yourself, you will face a social environment. Even a programmer who sits in front of the computer most of the time is usually required to work within a team. How do you respond to this environment? If this question comes up in an interview, how will you respond?

A winning CV: Job seeker without work experience.

Are you a college or university student? Are you employed in an irrelevant job and don’t feel like putting it in your CV? You probably are entertaining the idea that one day you will be employed. This article can help even other Kenyans struggling out there with developing their resumes. You're probably saying to yourself, "How am I going to land that great job when the only job I've ever had is nothing?" Well, cheer up, there are lots you can do to get something worthwhile on your resume to use in your job search.

If you still have some time to go before graduation, you have a perfect opportunity to make things easy on yourself when it comes time to look for your first real job. Just get some experience related to what you want to do when you graduate. Even if you have to work for free, do it if you can because it'll pay off in the end.

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.


Your tone says a lot about you. It portrays the confidence in you and the type of person you are. A job applicant that responds in a confident manner is likely to induce confidence in the interviewer.

Man made money, money made man mad.

By FRANK NJENGA
My son is earning good money as a software designer with an international company. He has just finished a multi-million shilling contract with a US company, but he has become so proud. The once adorable boy, who coped well with my relatives, now hardly speaks to them, disdains non-performers and is now reaching a point of embarrassing his father. Recently, he refused to attend the funeral of his uncle in the village saying he has no time. What has gone wrong?

Those who drink alcohol know that at a certain point one becomes drunk and in that state he is unable to recognize the fact that he has taken too much and continues to ask the bar man for more beer. It is only later, when one wakes up from the drunken slumber of alcohol that he is confronted by a fuming spouse, pounding headache and evidence of dangerous driving showing in his damaged car.
