Key Industry Experts Speak on Setting up Successful Career Paths and Goals
A career workshop recently organized by the Career Development Services saw Strathmore students interact with key industry experts to learn more about their career paths and goals. The key guests advising the students included; Mr. Kiprono Kittony current National Chairman of the Kenya National Chamber of Commerce & Industry, Dr Christopher Gitahi, CEO of AMREF Africa, and Mr Julius Ochieng, Head of Human Resources at Roofing & Steel.
The key emphasis from the speakers was to create a balance in life both in building ones character and improving on ones skills and capabilities. This will help to stand out from the rest considering the competition is quite stiff as one is looking for a job placement.
Mr Kittony narrated his experience as an employer and an employee in his career path. He later gave words of advice to Strathmore students during the career workshop. Start early, it is never too late. Work hard and work smart. Delegate; find the right partners to work with. Trust your instincts. Do what you enjoy. Identify your niche and do not let the opportunities to pass you by.
