Looking for a job in Kenya has been described like looking a needle in a hay stack!
So many vacancies yet no employer ever calls you back.
This was the story of Mathew’s life for the last 2 years. An Accountant by profession, Mathew had not yet settled into an Accounting job that would elevate his career.
He had attended over 10 interviews in the course of those two years without success. A qualified CPA with zero practical accounting skills
Mathew was lacking critical skills he needed to succeed as an Accountant more so considering his last internship had not provided him with adequate time to learn all he needed.
During one of his job search missions, Mathew came across a training which to date he describes as “God sent!”
And he did not hesitate to enroll for this timely and much needed training!
Together with other Accountants, Mathew was able to gain practical knowledge on very key Accounting skills.
In the next 5 days of this training, Mathew was able to learn some of the key Accounting skills such as:
- How to input entries into Quickbooks
- How to do online payroll processing by learning how to file P.A.Y.E, N.H.I.F., N.S.S.F.
- Doing bank reconciliations
- Doing balance sheet reconciliation
- Accurately preparing year end statutory accounts
- Filing of the corporation tax return
- Managing petty cash
- CV preparation and guidance on securing an accounting job among others.
In the course of those 5 days, Mathew was able to restructure his CV to fit what employers were looking for in Accountants.
He started positioning his skills and competencies in his CV in a way that would entice potential employers.
In addition to this, he now had a certificate to show that he had attended a Practical Accounting Training. Something that he brought out very well in his CV.
2 weeks after the training, Mathew started getting interview calls from potential employers; all of whom attributed the calls to “relevant training” indicated on his CV.
Today Mathew works as an Accountant at a leading Automotive Industry in Nairobi.
He now excels in his job and is looking forward to a promotion all thanks to the 5-day training which he attended.
In his own words, Mathew called the training, “The best Investment Of His Accounting Career.”
Perhaps just like Mathew, you are struggling to find your footing in the job market as an Accountant.
You always miss out when attending interviews because you lack the much needed practical Accounting skills.
Or maybe you have been working in a different position other than Accounting and you want to make the transition by gaining those critical skills.
You could even be a small business owner who wants to know how to file statutory payments.
Or, your accounting department but you are not exposed on how to file statutory payments.
If this is you and you finally want to master practical accounting skills and how to file taxes today, then register for our upcoming training here.
