GLOBAL MARKETS NAIROBI

Staff and student interns

Interns testimonials

“My internship at Global market has been rewarding. I gained a lot under the leadership of GM employees especially from the tasks assigned to me which enabled me to sharpen my professional skills and knowledge. I am now more conversed with the work environment/ culture and can easily adjust to any work environment. I feel confident that my experience at GM has transformed me into a valuable human capital and will continue to serve me well in all that I do.”

  • Njoroge - USIU

“I learned more in my three months with the Global Market Office than in any one year in a classroom, and I felt important and useful to office staff. I have been lucky enough to spend the past few months seeing the good that government can do— I will take these lessons with me and I will never forget this experience…I am a better person for having participated in this program."
- Isaac Kaaria - Strathmore University

"
I learned a lot from my time at the FCS Office—not only about the different ways things work at a state government level, but also about how to work as a team player in an office environment. This internship exceeded all my expectations! You will grow as an employee, but also as a person as a whole.”
- Fiona Kimwaki - USIU

"
This internship brought me out of my comfort zone in the best possible way. It reaffirmed my love for what I do, and seriously raised the bar for the quality and quantity of work I feel I am able to put out."
-Nicholas Nzyuko - Egerton University

 

"I learned more here than I ever expected, and grew as a professional and as a person. This is the best internship I have had so far—I feel privileged to have been a part of this team."
- John Mugi – Strathmore University

"This experience is something that can change your entire life. Being around individuals—many of them quite young—who are so excited about public service and government is refreshing and energizing. The people you work with will be so knowledgeable and intelligent that you’ll feel yourself gleaning so much understanding about the way government works from the very place that our state government originates. There’s no better place to intern if you’re interested in government--honestly."
- Shadrack Mwania - USIU



"The Global Market Internship Program is a great opportunity for current students…and was an overwhelming experience.  This program took me away from my comfort zone and allowed me to explore how the government operates.  I am grateful. I made this decision to apply and encourage others to do the same." 
-Veronica Luvuyi – KCA University
