How the Skills2Grow program helped me kickstart my career

"Having graduated with a degree in Purchasing and Supplies Management from a reputable university known for producing the best in that field, I could not understand why finding a job was proving to be a challenge.

A friend recommended I should try using Fuzu, and that is where I discovered the Skills2Grow Career Start Accelerator Program offered by Yusudi. I immediately applied for it and was excited when I got an invitation for an interview and shortly afterwards I was accepted to start the program.

Through the Skills2Grow program, I have been able to acquire and improve on my soft skills which are critical for starting out your career in the job market as a young graduate.

The Skills2Grow program has helped me grow professionally in three key areas namely; pitching, networking and interview skills.

My current job requires that I engage with many people and be able to prospect for clients. Through the product pitching and networking aspect of the Skills2Grow program, I was able to practice these skills on a continuous basis while in training. In addition, the mock interview I went through during the Skills2Grow Program presented a perfect opportunity to learn how to carry myself and answer questions during an interview.

Upon completion of the training, I was placed by Yusudi at Bob’s Fireplaces for a paid internship. My internship has enabled me to step out of my comfort zone and interact with many people from different industries. I have been able to forge new relationships with clients that we will work with for the foreseeable future." Annette Adhiambo
