Uasin Gishu County Secretary Mr. Edwin Bett has challenged the second cohort of the ambitious internship program to conduct themselves with the highest sense of responsibility.
Speaking while officially opening the three-week-long induction exercise the CS said that this will help the interns gain requisite practical skills required in the job market.
He asked them to take full advantage of the period they will be engaged.
You must prove why you should be employed by various organizations we will be posted to…meaning you must be a better person after the one year we will be with you,” He added.
He said that the County Government will continue investing in young people.
On her part, Public Service Management Chief Officer Mrs. Anne Koech congratulated the interns for being appointed for the next year.
She urged the interns to take the internship program with all the seriousness it deserves further challenging them to exploit all available opportunities.
The County is putting in resources to train and get you the required experience in the job market,” Said the Chief Officer.
While giving her opening remarks Director Human Resource Management Mrs. Irene Kapting’ei said discipline is key in the entire period challenging them to uphold the same.
You need to check on your dress code…package yourself well and you will go far…..this is just but a beginning,” said the Director.
The County head of public service later presented the Government set up.
Among other areas that the interns will be trained during their 3-day induction exercise include government revenue streams, public finance and procurement regulation, Human Resource and public service procedure manual, personal branding and Government communication.
