Kalekye Mumo’s advice to jobless Youth ignites mixed reactions
Don’t go inboxing & Dming people- Kalekye Mumo
According to Ms Mumo, people should strive to “sell themselves” instead of opting for desperate measures in the name of looking for a job.
The former K24 Presenter added that, before you decided to inbox somebody, you should ask yourself why the person you are reaching out to will be interested in helping you.
Don’t go inboxing & Dming people
“Don’t go inboxing & Dming people who you think have made it or have some sort of influence “get me a job, any job” SELL YOURSELF. Why should anyone help you? What are your strengths & in this economy can you not do it on your own? NOBODY LEGIT woke up like this. We worked for it!” reads Kalekye Mumo’s tweet.
However, the tweet attracted mixed reactions from Kenyans on Twitter, with a section stating that people can’t use the same antics to get jobs.
