Jean de Dieu Kabengera is the Job Desk Project Manager at Youth Employment Systems (YES) Rwanda, an on-line portal and physical job search, advertising and recruiting services aimed at enabling the youth in Rwanda find employment.
Below, is his typical working day;
By 6a.m I am out of bed and it’s the time I also thank God for enabling me to see the morning and ask Him to bless my day too. I have a shower and breakfast to organize and leave for work from Nyamirambo.
It takes me about 15 minutes to the office. Although it depends on what I have to do, at least before 8 I must be at work.
I check the work email to find if there is any demand for employees by any company and later check my personal email.
I respond immediately if there is any demand and later check amongst the available to select the suitable and capable workforce, depending on the requirements.
I alert those I believe fit for the available opportunity and brief them about what is expected of them.
If I do not have any demand, I check various websites in search for workforce demand.
Depending on what I have on my desk, I might instead visit the tea room to avoid going out for lunch although not always.
I work until 8p.m when I go home. I engage in some domestic work before 10p.m when I have supper. I go to bed at 11p.m.
