Who We are

About the Career Service Office

Recent statistics show that a high unemployment rate arises from the fact that most Kenyan university and college graduates do not find gainful employment. The employment market absorbs less than 10% of the total. In light of this, the Office of Career Services (OCS) was established in 2019 by the Ministry of Education in collaboration with the State Department of Post Training and Skills Development.

The Office of Career Services is passionate about equipping trainees with the knowledge and skills they need to grow their careers for the rest of their lives, make wise career selections, and succeed in the workplace. Its goal is to combine trainees’ academic prowess with work-related values and soft/life skills to create well-rounded individuals who are prepared for job and/or entrepreneurship. Trainees and graduates can take advantage of a wide range of exciting job options through the career service office. The office helps trainees enhance their professional skills while facilitating internships and campus placements. Every student receives support from the office, which helps them every step of the way as they pursue a rewarding profession.
