Getting internships in Nairobi, especially Nairobi is very hectic. It has become very hard for students who want to graduate in a bid to secure better jobs.
Many students don’t know the best way to find internship and who to approach in case they are stranded.
To start with, you must have a recommendation letter written from your college. This will enable the company to recognize that you come from a certain training institution.
Besides having a recommendation letter, you should have a professionally written CV-you can approach fixus recruitment services to do one for you.
Most students go for attachments either in May or January . Please ensure you don’t wait until the last minute to start dropping your application.
One thing I have noticed is that most students rush in January, days before the required internship commencement date, and end up being frustrated because of the large number of individuals applying for internships. Please be the first one to apply, don’t wait until the last minute.
Very few companies offer internships nowadays, so don’t apply to just 2 or three companies and believe you can get the internship, you will be frustrated. Ensure that you apply to more than 15 companies.
There are companies which pay interns but most companies don’t.
Some of the companies that pay include Madison Insurance, KRA, IRA,Jubilee Insurance,Kemri,hospitals and Banks.
Some companies, however, require you to pay them.
