The Nairobi Christian Church is gearing up for a 2 day career workshop that is scheduled to take place on 31st August and 1st September targeting primary and secondary students aged between 13-19 years old.

It has become common to find people working in wrong careers which may hamper their overall growth and limit their potential. The church held a session on personality profiling a week ago and 84 teenagers mainly drawn from the secondary schools attended.

The teenagers did a personality profiling test to collect data that will help the career guidance team to guide them on the right careers. The students logged into the internet, did the test online and had their reports instantly produced. The reports will be availed to them this Friday during the career workshop by the career guidance team.

According to Deacon Francis Kamau, the personality profile test will help the teens know themselves because career choices are based on who an individual is. “The teens are a critical stage where they need to be guided to a career choice that goes with their personality. This guidance will greatly enhance the career choices they make to suit them in their jobs,” he added.

The standard 7 and 8 will do their profile test this Friday 31st August and the teenagers who had successfully done their profile tests will have a proper discussion of their reports as the career guidance team takes them through the careers that match their personalities. In the end the students will know their actual career choices armed with a career strategy that can be easily followed up by the parents, career guidance team and the students themselves.

The two day career workshop starts on Friday 31st August at 8.30 am – 3.30pm and Saturday 1st September from 9.00am – 1.00pm at the Umoja sanctuary. The parents are reminded to give their children Ksh 150 to cater for lunch and O’clock tea per day. Those who did not get an opportunity to do the profile test will be able to do it once again and have their reports.

Diana Kerubo from Plainsview School noted that the personality profile was learnable, enjoyable and good. “I learned some things I never knew about myself like whom am I personally. I have come to realize I don’t know myself.” He adds, “Personality profiles should be encouraged for people to know themselves.”

“Career day is good as it helps us to narrow down the career choices early enough in life,” said Abraham Lincoln from Ofafa Jericho High School. He continued, “It is good for us to know our personalities as we work our way to our careers. The personality test was straightforward. We have a little understanding of our personality and ourselves as a whole. The tests have been timely and will help us to become better people as we develop our careers.”

The career guidance team is made up of professionals mostly brothers and sisters in the church whose hearts are committed to inspire the youth and guide them to achieve their career potential.
