Tuesday, July 23, 2019-A Kenyan University graduate has taken to the streets of Kisumu with placards, hoping to catch the attention of employers.
The Kenyan DAILY POST
The 30 year old man identified as, Bob Dibogo, graduated from Egerton University with a Degree in AgriBusiness Management.
He also holds a Diploma in Horticulture.
The frustrated graduate claims that he was forced to go to the streets with placards after applying for many jobs and getting no response.
Bob says that when he was studying in campus, he thought he will graduate and get a good job but the going has become so tough, forcing him to beg for a job in the streets through placards.
“The struggle continues...
If there is no struggle, there is no progress. Today I drunk from the cup of humility - Job hunting from the streets of Facebook to the real streets of Kisumu City-Kenya.
All in pursuit of goodwill. So, the better part of today's early morning hours I marched on the streets ALONG prosperity building; it houses County government offices, so is the devolved Ministry of Agriculture and Livestock - a fertile ground as a potential employer. Then ALONG CBK, KCB bank round about, through to County Assembly offices; political goodwill is essential - another fertile ground. Then ALONG the busy Oginga Odinga street; It has a chain of businesses entities, banks, other organisations and general public. Then back to County government offices area. I hope I caught the attention of potential employers!
Never in my lifetime, had I imagined myself carrying those posters and being in the situation I was today! No graduate should go through such an ordeal!! - I pushed myself.
Anyways, I walk home positive as two, kind souls squeezed their contacts into my shirt chest pocket - I'll see what they'll offer. Regards.” He posted on facebook.
