The Office of Career Services was launched by Ambassador Amina Mohammed in the University of Nairobi in June 2018. Every University and TVET institution was tasked with the mandate to create this office. The purpose of this career office is to bridge the skill gap, help students develop soft skills and generally create an opportunity for interactions and networking between students and employers for smooth transition from learning to earning.

Our mission is to support the vision of Chuka University by empowering students to make the right career choices through Academic Advising, Career Counselling and Linkages. We envision a holistic graduate equipped with soft and practical skills for the job market.
