More than 500 Germany-Alumni attended the career fair and informed themselves about career opportunities in 25 German and Kenyan companies and organisations, used the opportunity to network or attended the different presentations and workshops. Over 92% of the interviewed persons awarded the event an overall rating of “excellent” or “good”. Here are some of the feedback:

The fair was the best in terms of organization that I have had the opportunity to attend so far. The programme was adhered to and the various sessions lived up to to my expectations. Exhibiting companies were also very friendly and helpful.

The atmosphere was very professional and the event was a good opportunity to network.

The alumni panel giving their story was the best part for me, because they encouraged me to forge ahead and do what i can.

The participating companies and what they had to offer, be it jobs or services, was really eye opening.
