Being the largest telecommunication company in Kenya, getting a job at Safaricom is considered to be the best for any job seeker. However, what goes through your mind when someone who has worked there for years and risen through the ranks, decides to quit?
Mary (not her real name), had worked at Safaricom for close to 5 years when she decided it was time for her to leave. In her own words, she did not want to overstay in the company. She quit without knowing what her next move would be, and found herself working at numerous companies in a short span, as she sought to find the ‘it’ factor in her career.
After interviewing her for her current role, I sought to learn more about her career journey right from the start. Here is Mary’s story, the lessons she has learned, and her advice to you.
