By Rahab Mbiriti / April 12, 2019




Unemployment in Kenya is soaring high and many young people are having difficulties in entering the job market. At the same time, companies are also struggling to find the most potential talent among endless piles of CVs. Luckily, the Internet has changed the job market significantly. Getting employed is today easier, thanks to job websites flooding the internet.

Here are the most reliable and trusted job websites in Kenya in no particular order;

BrighterMonday

BrighterMonday boasts of being a leader in East Africa’s job websites, carrying the highest number of job seekers and employers in its database. It was founded in Kenya by Ringier One Africa Media.

To enjoy the full benefits of this site, both job seekers and employers are required to sign up and create an account.

Job seekers going through the site are provided with tools such as career services, CV training, personality assessments and courses all to help you find the perfect job fit.

The site offers a wide range of filters that help job seekers find the best jobs that fit their qualities in regards to location, type of industry and job functions.

Job seekers can subscribe to daily alerts for available vacancies through email.

Shortlist

Shortlist is another platform that is widely used, not only in Kenya but across Africa and India.

Likewise, job seekers need to create an account with Shortlist for them to fully benefit from the site.

To best match employers and job seekers, Shortlist has a customized online application process for each job opening, to let job seekers show what they can do.

This means that the employer comes to Shortlist and explains the must-haves for the role, and the application is carefully designed to screen for those qualities.

Shortlist helps to eradicate the issue of “who-do-you-know” or brand-based hiring (for example what school someone attended or what connections someone may have).

Job seekers complete the online application, the matching work kicks in, and then the employers get a shortlist of the applicants who are the best matches for that role.

Shortlist continues to email applicants with updates throughout the process.
