Looking For A CAREER CHANGE? This Is For You

Does your job excite or challenge you? Are you doing something you are passionate about?

These are valid questions you should be asking yourself if you feel like it’s time to make the big move and change careers.  No one wants to wake up dreading going to work every day. If this is you, make that change!

Before making this change, figure out the reasons why you want to leave. Take your time and do your research. Be honest with yourself, a career change is a lot to deal with, you will have to live with this decision, so again, take your time.

Take your time to and asses all the option, this could a good move for you if done for the right reasons and at the right time.

Be inspired by these Kenyan professionals who made that leap and never looked back;

Biko Zulu

Well known for his blog, BikoZulu has become synonymous with the culture of successful blogging in Kenya. However, before becoming a successful writer, Biko was a laboratory technician, doing his duty in ridding the world of diseases and pathogens, as he has previously put it. Despite pursuing a course in the same career, Biko always had a burning desire for writing and over the years, he nurtured this talent to become the household name that he is today. He dropped his lab technician career and pursued his passion and today, he is one of the most sought-after writers in the industry.

Lofty Matambo

The prolific Swahili anchor is one among many Kenyans whose careers took a different turn from what they studied for in school. He had worked at a local clinic as a lab expert, which slowly drained his energy day after day, to a point where the doctor had noticed and encouraged him to chase his dreams. 

He auditioned for a radio job at Hope FM and finally made his way to TV and is now one of the biggest names in media.

Mutua Matheka

Photographer extraordinaire, master of all things visual, and a man with enviable photography skills, Mutua Matheka is no stranger to Kenyans. He is the man behind some of Nairobi’s breathtaking portraits and is probably the man behind some of the most beautiful depictions of this city. But, despite having an artistic bug in him, Mutua did not start as a photographer and neither did he take formal classes in photography. He pursued Architecture in JKUAT, as his artistic nature drove him towards the course. Later on, he went to Germany for an internship and that is where he picked his love for photography.

Angela Ndambuki

Starting out as a mellow vocalist in the all-girls’ group Tatuu, Angela remains an inspiration to many girls. She was recently appointed as the CEO of the Kenya National Chamber of Commerce. Angela’s light first shone when she started out as a singer in Tatuu but later settled on a career in law and rose to her current position.

Caroline Mutoko

She is known as the queen of Kenya radio. She is known for outspoken nature, and a fearless ability to fight anyone that tries to bring her down. However, Caroline did not start off in radio. After graduation, like most people, she got into banking. She later joined Radio Africa where she started off by doing traffic updates. She later started voicing radio ads before she got her own show. She has since then grown in the media industry and is one of the most celebrated media gurus in the country.

She also recently ventured into the cosmetics industry where she launched her own line of lipsticks.

Bottom line;

Changing a career is not an easy thing to do. However, if you can learn anything from these successful Kenyans is that it is doable, as long as you put in the work and effort.
