One on one with the job market

Are you in a job or searching for one? If you already are in an office then this article will mirror directly what you see in the office in your every day routine and if you are searching for a job, you better read this to ensure shock absorption when you get that job you have always wanted. I want to hope that you read our article yesterday about ‘the truth in corporate world’ and if you did not please find it. When you get in an office for the first day, all may be smooth but wait till you settle in and start learning things like office culture and natural groupings or segmentations in the office. At this point you will realize what the world is made up of.

What is it made up of and how do I fit in?

Want a good salary? How to go about it ...

By Juliah Karimi.
Most job seekers in Kenya tread carefully when it comes to asking for more pay. It’s understandable — after the relief of landing a job, negotiating a salary can be the last thing from your mind. I recently got an email question and frankly it has not been the first. So I thought about it and I have gone through the same where I felt I should be earning higher but I really didn’t know the steps.

It can even feel awkward as most Kenyan professionals not used to placing a value on the skills, knowledge and abilities we bring. Once in a while, asking for higher salary can even put you out of the running.

Important facts to know before job hunting

Job hunting is a daily exercise. Whether you get a good job, you will be hunting another bigger job after a while. That is why I get shocked when people email us to unsubscribe from getting the latest jobs on their emails. Like I said above, job hunting does not stop because you got a job, it makes it easier. Now you have resources and access to information (internet) and even interview experience.

If you are coming straight from college or university starting to look for a job is tricky but it can be very easy if you know what you are doing. If you have a job, I know by now you know various things you need to adhere to before starting to start looking for a job. But if you have forgotten, then here is a refresher.
