Are you in Nairobi but you are not sure which offices accept CVs from fresh graduates in upper hill Nairobi? One of the most shocking things I have heard from fresh graduates is that they are not aware that there are companies in upper hill that conduct recruitment.
When I was looking for a job, I had to know almost every office in Nairobi because as I stayed more in the city, the more I became impatient. I was forced to go into every corner where a company existed. I got a chance to know that there are companies which don’t advertise jobs but recruit job seekers from a pool of resumes they receive from blind applications. If you don’t physically visit the companies, you stand a better chance of missing golden opportunity of getting a job in such institutions.
After I got a job and later realized how job seekers miss out on several opportunities due to ignorance, I promised myself to inform them on the best ways to seek employment in Nairobi. This is one of the many articles aimed at helping them.
If you are in Nairobi and intend to drop CVs in companies based in upper hill, these are the companies you will drop your resume.
