|PS Labour: Beatrice Kituyi|
In a bid to curb this, the government will publish a list of sectors experiencing shortage of manpower to help graduates and professionals find jobs.
Speaking during the Labour Day ceremony at Uhuru Park, Labour PS Beatrice Kituyi said the findings on Kenya's skill base would be unveiled next week to help employers, job seekers and students understand the job market.
Training institutions will also use the findings to produce graduates with the requisite skills to improve their chances of getting hired.
Among the key findings expected from the survey include the number of professionals in different fields against what the market requires and the average pay for different qualifications in both private and public sectors.
A lot of complaints from graduates have been heralded recently where the graduates say they cannot find work since companies are only hiring persons with two years and above experience. One can only hope that will graduates can catch a break this time around....Courtesy of Career Point Kenya
