Out of the classroom and into the workplace. In February Kabula , one of Buseaga Scotland’s students, started her three month work placement as a secretary with Mwanza City Council. For the next three months she will be working in the headquarters of the Ministry of Education offices in Mwanza. Kabula is delighted as the office is well equipped with computers and all necessary materials. Sadly this is not the case in many offices.
As her secretarial course is nearing its end she has been busy preparing her CV with the help of Julieth, Assistant project leader and volunteer Arnold Barrow.
Finding a job will not be easy and recruitment practices in Tanzania make it difficult for young people with no family behind them to get work. CV’s are not usually expected during recruitment however we hope having one will make her stand out from the crowd. There is a high unemployment rate among young people in Tanzania. We hope the training she has undergone and the confidence she has developed will help her find work. Her teachers have praised her for her pleasant personality and hard working nature. We wish her well for a successful placement and in her search for employment.
