We will be opening the next round of applications early next year. So keep it here for more!

When we rolled out the first job shadowing program in partnership with social activist and radio personality Adelle Onyango, we did not anticipate it to be this huge! With over 800 applications and more than 30 companies on board, we set out to provide young aspiring professionals with an opportunity to get insights from industry experts in different organizations across Kenya.

Together with Adelle, we held an orientation day with the selected participants and gave them tips for making their job shadowing a learning and exciting experience. Then we sent them to our employer partners like Safe Boda, Big Square and Creide Consulting where they got to be part of the day-to-day activities of those organizations for two weeks or more.  

Two months down the line, we are extremely overwhelmed by the stories from participants like Ann and Elnine who spent their time at Safe Boda gaining hands-on experience at the workplace. These kind of stories motivate us to help you succeed in your career journey. In order to provide you with a similar opportunity to enrich your career, we will be opening the next round of applications early next year. So keep it here for more! 

In the meantime, here’s what some of the participants had to say: 

“I would like to thank the Fuzu team and TeamAdelle for this wonderful opportunity. It has been a wonderful experience that has help improve my work etiquette, research, social media skills and confidence. I am thankful to Creide for their cooperation and mentoring throughout the program for it has been of great assistance.” (Ashley Muma – Creide Consulting)

“I am grateful to Fuzu and TeamAdelle for providing me with an opportunity to be part of the team that is human, fun, witty, fair and works smart.

Starting this week, I have been offered an opportunity to continue working with this team for another two months and I’m excited!” (James Mutinda - Fuzu)

“It was my first time working in a very big company and was able to interact with people of a higher rank. I learnt to manage my time, that I can attend school and still come for the job.

“I’d like to thank TeamAdelle, Fuzu and the Creide family for giving me the chance to take part in the job shadow experience.

Creide also taught me how to handle myself in a corporate environment which has helped me gain more confidence in myself when it comes to facing my future employers.” (Cynthia Mumbua - Creide Consulting)
