Unprecedented levels of unemployment in the country have been a pain in the neck for most Kenyan young population. The Covid 19 Epidermic that hit the country in early 2020 made matters worse with most businesses closing shop.
It is, therefore, a relief that the Public Service Internship Programme( PSIP) is a government initiative tailor-made to offer the opportunity for the graduates to acquire and develop much-needed technical and professional skills as well as work experience in Public Service.
The Public Service Employer (PSC) has officially announced the recruitment of 3,000 interns under Cohort 5 for the Financial Year 2022/2023.
