  • There has been lots of complaints huku mitaani kwamba some jobs ni za wenyewe, in my little understanding this is one of them. Unaposema unataka ajiri mkurugenzi mkuu then age limit not less than 45,  una maanisha nini? kwamba aliye chini ya umri huo hawezi beba hilo jukumu???!!! 
  • Then unasema kua awe  na sifa hizi:-
  •  Master Degree in Renewable Energy or Electrical 
    Engineering, preferably with PHD degree in Engineering.
    • Holder of MBA in Finance or Economics or related
     disciplines from recognized training institutions will
                                                         be an 
                                                        added advantage.
    • Computer literate.

    Halafu kama haitoshi unasema:-Must be registered by the Engineers
     Registration Board.
    Nilikua nawaza tu kwa sauti je, huyu wa MBA finance/Economics anaanzaje
     kua registered na  Engineers Registration Board (ERB)
    Pili kwanini usiwe straight kwamba unataka DR in Engineering, una beat around
     the bush kua "preferably PhD in Engineering". Are you really serious looking for 
    a pesron to cover the role au yupo why age limit? Are you telling us kwamba aged
     people wako skilled and competent for every senior position? Are you telling us kua
     Doctors are best fit for the position? If so then some Universities even in the 1st world countries should review 
    walimu/lectures ambao ni MR/Miss lkn wenye experience ya over 20 years kua kwenye positon zao za kufundisha
    .My view hii kazi iko so specific kwa mtu fulani (targeted personnel) the reason being kuna vigezo vya ku engua watu
     kwa umri,muda mwingi kazini, elimu kubwa na mixing up ku justify aina ya mtu ambae yupo ,  pia mtu wa MBA 
    hawezi kua recoginized na any ERB kwasababu sio mhandisi.

      Soma mwenyewe hapa chini uvumbue maajabu kupata kazi!!!
