The annual Africa Nazarene University career Fair took place last week​ at the Helstrom Students Centre at the M​ain C​ampus in Ongata Rongai. The career fair, which was themed ‘ Aligning career interest with personal abilities’ attracted a host of high schools , ANU students and corporate organizations.

While welcoming the students at this year’s Career ​Fair, Africa Nazarene University Vice Chancellor Prof. Leah Marangu reiterated the need for the students to network and use such opportunities to strike ​

relationships with future employers while understanding their skill set requirement.

Our guest speaker, ​the CEO and C​hief L​earning designer at Jobsmentor – Makena Ringera,​ ​challenged the young people to focus on their future by learning all they need to learn now while having the end in mind​. She argued that, majority of young people do not know what they are passionate about and this makes them do jobs they are not interested in that is motivated by​ the pay check.  This trend produces employers who do not engage their talents, who are aloof and uninterested.​

The highlight of the Career Fair was when students  had the chance to get career mentorship and guidance from the various Academic ​departments and corporate organizations that had pitched booths at the event.

We ​would like to applaud​ the Academic departments for the elaborate presentations and demonstrations that encapsulated the practical approach.We thank our participating partners,Kenya commercial Bank, VIVO Energy,Koola Waters, ​I​nternational School of Advertising, Chase Bank, and ACCA, Amnesty international, Equity Bank, Cooperative Bank and CIM, for ensuring that the event was a success.

What begins here, transforms the world.
