100 young people are set to join the Makueni County Public Service through the county internship program for a period of one year.
The program will help the interns gain valuable work experience by networking with professionals in the various county departments as well as give them a platform to explore a career path through developing and refining skills.
The young people were competitively selected by the County public service board and are a representation from the 30 wards in the county. This is the sixth cohort to join the county public service since devolution.
On Thursday, the interns started a 2-day induction to equip them with various public service policies, processes and office etiquette before they settle down in the various workstations.
The induction workshop was officially opened by Makueni Deputy Governor Lucy Mulili. According to Mulili, the interns will be subjected to performance appraisals so as to focus on specific targets.
Others present during the official opening of the induction workshop include ICT and Education CEC Elizabeth Muli, Chief Officers for ICT, Education and Internship, Financial services and Livestock, Alphonse Kanunga, Nicholi s Mutua, John Nguni and Dr. Victoria Kyalo respectively.
