Renowned Kenyan media personality Caroline Mutoko has revealed that the first job she evrer did was as a courier.
Mutoko said she believes there is no shame in taking any job that would provide you with the necessary exposure and experience.
She spoke during an interview on ‘Cleaning The Airwaves.’
“I finished form 4 on 28th of November and I was employed on 4th of December. Mrs Mutoko was not entertaining me idling around. I was bitter that everybody I knew was at home chilling.”
She claims she did many gigs before landing her current position.
“I used to work on Baricho road at Kirinyaga works. It was a printing and stationery firm. I received the phone, I did cash sales, I would fill in the time people came in.
I would calculate when people worked overtime, I picked up cheques and delivered invoices when they started trusting me more. I was a messenger.”
“I was about to be 18 at the time. I worked until I went to University but when we closed they would take me back. I have never said no to work because it does not look appealing.
To every young person wherever you get a job take it, the networks you form are amazing.”
