With clamor for degrees, the number of jobless university graduates in Kenya increases every year. Years back when degrees were important, getting a job after completing the university was automatic. Things have changed nowadays.
TVET graduates can find some comfort in that there are jobs in the fields that they studied, which they can opt to pursue.
Here are some sectors where TVET graduates can fit very well:
TVET graduates have workmanship skills required in key sectors like finance, engineering, craft, and telecommunication.
In tourism, the graduates can act as travel agents, consultants, and cabin crew members, to name but a few.
Under office management, TVET graduates have options in administration, receptionists, and bookkeeping. They can demonstrate their exceptional skills which can propel them up the ladder within that organization.
TVET students with engineering skills will fit well in many industrial sectors, private and public as these valuable technical skills support the president’s big four agenda. Key among them is manufacturing.
Most graduates can apply for internships or apprentices in order to gain experience to enable them to become sought-after engineers within the country.
That said, TVET students gain real and valuable practical skills which they can utilize to get employment, employ themselves, or work on contracts.
