Prof Wangari Maathai’s Last public interview: Gone but inspiring


This was Wangari Maathai’s last public interview conducted by Carol Odero of Drum Magazine in July 2011.

Life on the Green Side.

AN ACTIVE AND PUBLIC LIFE, ONE OR TWO REGRETS, AND MANY PEARLS OF WISDOM COMING FROM YEARS OF RICH EXPERIENCE THAT’S PROF WANGARI MAATHAI’S.
When I finally meet Prof Wangari Maathai, my first thought is that she looks smaller. She’s slighter than I expected, unlike the robust image that came through when the world saw her with Oprah Winfrey. And that engaging smile has become rare. 

It is now seven years since she won the Nobel Peace Prize, valued at Kshs 100 million at the time. It was a feat that made her something........

Does your CV list accomplishments?


Has this ever happened to you? You’ve been instructed to list your career accomplishments, and you can’t think of any. Or you’re asked in a job interview, ‘What accomplishments are you most proud of?” and you freeze up. You know you have had accomplishments, but you just can’t dredge them up.

The inability to come up with accomplishments happens to lots of Kenyan job seekers. We know because we ask our CV and cover-letter clients to list accomplishments as part of the process of preparing their CV and cover letters for their next jobs. Although we stress that accomplishments are far more important than duties and responsibilities, a surprising number of clients are unable to articulate beyond the day-to-day tasks they performed in their jobs.

Julie Gichuru – a woman of all seasons


Remember this story from the archives. It may inspire you one more time

One of Kenya’s best loved anchors opens up about success, criticism, motherhood and her new agenda for Kenya’s youth.

By Carol Odero

She must be used to hearing this but I thought she would be taller. Julie Gichuru is diminutive. When she walks in, her high heels disappear into the hem of her jeans, pooling under her feet and grazing the floor. She looks all of 21 and her thick hair, aided by extensions because she cut it off a few years back, falls down her back. She is so chirpy and perky it’s contagious. Do not be fooled. She has been known to bite.

Today, she is group digital manager and television host at Citizen TV and her shows have been known to claim their pound of flesh..........


The best reaction after an intimidating interview.


Have you ever been in the following situations?
  1. Your interview lasted for very few minutes  and you came out of the interview room with very low expectation of getting the job.
  2. The interview panel dismissed your answers by asking other questions while still answering the previous.
  3. The interview panel stopped you at the slightest of attempts to answer a question.
  4. The panel did not smile at any of your responses.
  5. One of the panellists was holding his chin midway the interview.
