"My job search was low key discouraging, I had applied for jobs close to 3 years without any positive feedback. It reached a point where I was almost giving up and that's when a friend recommended Fuzu. The first opportunity I saw upon registering on Fuzu was Yusudi Sales Academy (previously known as Skills2Grow), I got interested and applied to join the program and that was the start of a fulfilling journey to where I am present.
The program challenged me to think outside the box. I learned the need to have an open mind in day-to-day activities, the importance of having emotional intelligence when facing challenges or interacting with people, the advantages of being proactive in my responsibilities and the beauty of loving what I do and doing it at my uttermost best. This brings a very fulfilling feeling knowing that I have done what I wanted to do and set out to accomplish it to the fullest.
The Yusudi Sales Academy has played a big role in my professional life. I left the program a completely different person. I gained confidence like I never had before, especially when facing a panel or individual during an interview.
After the training, I was placed at Crown Healthcare for a paid internship, a premier solutions provider for Medical Equipment and Supplies in the region. As I mentioned earlier, I had been looking for a job for almost three years without success, but after attending the Yusudi Sales Academy, I got the opportunity to be part of one of the leading companies. I don't think this would have been possible if I would have continued looking for employment on my own.
Getting an internship opportunity at Crown Healthcare opened a whole lot of opportunities. I gained experience as an intern and there was the possibility of getting employed as a permanent employee, and it happened!
I put into practice all that I learned during at Yusudi and with that I moved from being an Intern to a Sales Coordinator to a Regional Sales Representative covering 6 counties in Kenya namely Uasin Gishu, Elgeyo Marakwet, West Pokot, Trans Nzoia, Nandi and Bungoma, all within a period of 10 months.
My post-internship experience has been fulfilling. I get to learn new things and face new challenges every day. These experiences have enabled me to grow at a professional and personal level. All this I would say thanks to Yusudi for the academy program that prepares the youth professionally and helps them get employment." Kevin Odondi
