There is that special bond and connection between Fuzu and the person with the account. Fuzu motivates and gives you career guidance and development courses. I would recommend Fuzu to other young professionals.

Securing employment is a fundamental reason as to why most people enroll in University. Despite not expecting to get their dream jobs right after university, most graduates will agree that things turn out to be a little bit tougher than they expected.

Joshua Ssemyalo, a recent graduate from Uganda, had his fair share of challenges as he was getting into the unwelcoming job market. Thanks to Fuzu, Joshua was able to secure employment by becoming that graduate employers look for – equipped with a different mix of knowledge, skills and abilities. He shared with us his Fuzu experience, here’s what he had to say.

Congratulations, we are proud of the progress you are making in your career. How is life at the new company?

Life at the new company is not all that bad; I’m enjoying what I’m doing though there are some challenges as it happens when you are new in the field of official employment.

What inspired you to pursue a Bachelor of Science in Animal Production Technology and Management?

I must say it was an inspiration from dad and family. Right from when I was a kid, farming has been the order of the day. It is where I have harvested all my school fees and tuition, so the love I had for animals is what made me go further and find out more about what I did not know about animals. Besides, it was and still a dream to change farming at my home from just subsistence to commercial.

You happen to have graduated not so long ago. What challenges did you face while looking for a job?

I found it challenging for me to convince employers on what I could do since I was not even yet a graduate. At some point, I had to offer a two weeks non-paid trial in one of the big livestock product processing companies, which did not absorb me into their system. But thanks to Fuzu, I kept on reading the insightful articles from the platform. A few weeks later, one of the top personnel in the company recommended me to where I’m working now.

Now that you’ve gotten a job, in what ways do you still find Fuzu helpful?

The free courses Fuzu offers have helped me a lot. I’m able to add to my management skills. I have a plan of going for a post-graduate diploma in project monitoring and evaluation so, I found the free course in project planning, monitoring and evaluation so resourceful.

What role did Fuzu play in your job search?

I was motivated every single day I logged on to Fuzu to check on what Fuzu had for me. I always got what I wanted whenever I visited the platform. Thanks to Ann for always not giving up on me! Her emails always encouraged me to log in and check out for the new stuff.

How different do you find Fuzu from other platforms?

Unlike other platforms, I can describe FUZU as a “full package platform”. Besides the job alerts, there are free courses which provide one with basic. There is that special bond and connection between Fuzu and the person with the account. Fuzu motivates and gives you career guidance and development courses. I would recommend Fuzu to other young professionals.

What advice would you give someone who is actively looking for a job?

They should never give up on their dreams! One’s opportunity is ever there waiting, but somebody can never get if they do not get up and look for it. They should never forget that opportunities are ever available for prepared minds. However lucky one maybe, if they are not prepared in mind, big opportunities will always come their way but they won’t be in a position to hold them for too long. The other thing would be sign up on Fuzu!
