We all know how hard it can be to push into the working life when you are a young jobseeker, with little or no experience at all.
Luckily there are more and more programs designed to give youth a gentle push up the career ladder. For example, McKinsey Social Initiative’s Generation is a global youth employment programme that helps young adults change their life trajectories by providing them the opportunity to launch successful careers.
In Kenya, the programme focuses on sales capabilities and employment in financial sector (banking and insurance companies) with the objective of building skills and competencies of the successful candidates and then providing them with internship opportunities in leading Kenya financial sector companies. Training is provided by one of the leading financial service providers in the world.
The programme is meant for 20-30 year old unemployed or underemployed candidates who have finished their KCSE examination with D+ or higher score. Generation Kenya is looking for ambitious, energetic and talented youth to go through a 6-week financial service training programme and who can eventually work in the financial services industry (banking and insurance companies). The program guarantees 2 interviews with the employer partners and they have so far placed 489 candidates into employment.
