First job? How much should you be paid in terms of salary?

“Is a salary of 30,000 Kenya shillings good enough for a fresh graduate?”

How much should a new graduate earn

This is a question I encountered while going through posts from the Institute of human Resource Management Kenya LinkedIn Posts – a fresh graduate asking about the salary his peers should expect

Latest jobs in Kenya

Candidates waiting to be interviewed.

I once had the pleasure to talk to a Human Resources consultant concerning the hiring process. I was a young man then, of about 20 years with not even a gram of experience. From our discussion he gave very insightful tips that helped me understand what interviewers look out for.

To be honest, I never thought I would ever write about this in my entire life until I started working with Duma Works, one of Kenya’s premier recruitment firms. While interacting with employers, I discovered that most of them emphasized certain skills that unfortunately most candidates did not have or even worse, failed to communicate effectively that they had them.
