Career Question; Is Bacheor of Arts marketable; where can one work?

Hi! What are some of the areas that
Bachelor of Arts graduates can work in? Is the course marketable and what is the start pay?
Bachelor of Arts is a wide course. There are many specializations that one can pursue. I will elaborate on just a few specializations, just to give an overall perspective as to the nature and marketability of the course.
If you pursue the Sociology or anthropology option, you will learn on how society is organized, some psychology as well as the thinking process of humans. You will also learn issues such as development and
gender issues, political science as well as community development. Though the market for sociology and anthropology graduates has dipped over the years, there are still avenues where one could work. For instance, one could work as a social worker, community development expert with an NGO, or a with a microfinance specialist. Equally, the government is also proving to be a major employer, especially in provincial administration. Some sociology graduates pursue further training in human resource and join companies as human resource professionals, effectively dealing with hiring, firing, and staff development and training and employee compensation issues. Some sociology and anthropology graduates also join the criminal investigation departments while some find employment in the media sector.

  2. Hi! Telecommunication engineering is a branch within electrical and electronics engineering, but in much more depth and detail.Electrical and electronics engineering deals with such aspects as heavy power and transmission,( where one would expect to work in energy utility companies such as Kenya Power and KenGen) and light power, where one would expect to work in such areas as the telecommunications and IT industry, such major employers would include safaricom, Airtel, Siemens, Nokia, amongst other satellite communication companies. So, from the explanation above, telecommunication engineering is a narrow branch of electrical and electronics engineering, but studied in much more detail and depth.

    The engineering courses that were rejected by Jab are still being deliberated upon, and the Commission for Higher education (CHE) is acting as the moderator between the universities and the professional bodies. ERB had accused the universities of duplicating courses, or sometimes implementing courses without the necessary infrastructure and teaching manpower to support the training of students. As a temporary move, some of the universities have advised their former students to go back and take additional units, perhaps 8 to 16 units, which in effect is between one semester and two semesters of academic study. Few students have complied with such a move, since it's not mandatory for you to be registered by ERB before you can be employed, however, the professional certification comes in handy when you need to be recognized as a professional engineer, when bidding for contracts, or when seeking jobs in certain companies, or in the civil service and public sector.

    Hope that is clear, in case of anything, you can always ask.
