photo: Master's Degree Holder Stands on the Road Begging for a Job

A jobless master's degree holder has damned the consequences to advertise for a job on the streets using a placard.

Mr. Elijah Yegon
In a shocking move, a jobless Masters Degree holder from Kenya, Mr. Elijah Yegon mustered the boldness to beg for job on the road while holding a placard advertising his skills to prospective employers.
According to reports in Kenya, Yegon, 29 said he was forced to use the unconventional method to seek for employment after seeing two jobless graduates get job offers after standing beside the highways with a placard.
The Economics and Statistics graduate has been a victim of two companies that had to restructure and retrench in a bid to cut costs but he still had hope in the sector plunging his lifetime savings into acquiring a Master’s degree.
Narrating his predicament, Yegon said:  “Since I had applied for other jobs, I got a job offer at Kenafric in the same position but in September 2015 they also announced their plans to cut down."
He then used his Sh200,000 savings to pay for a Master of Arts in Project Planning and Management at the University of Nairobi. Since then, he has not been able to secure a well paying job.
Mr Yegon is currently being housed by his village mate in Eastleigh estate and wakes up daily to drop his curriculum vitae.

“Sometimes I do blind applications but other times I apply for advertised vacancies and have done approximately 500 applications both online and physical this year,” he said.
He has not received any internship or job offers and sometimes doubts if the documents will reach the employers as security officers often ask him to leave them at the gate for lack of appointment.
