The global economy has increasingly become a knowledge economy, and as such, the bar has been raised for every researcher, advanced professional and academic. PhD programmes are preparing the next generation of researchers in both academic and business fields. Because of the importance of research, a disciplined approach and guidance are required to drive intellectual search. A Doctorate of Philosophy programme is a training ground for developing that discipline and unique approach to intellectual search and solutions.
The first free workshop organized by Unicaf in Kenya on the 22nd of August 2019 focused on ‘Successful CV and Cover Letter Writing’. Around 40 students, graduates and professionals attended the morning and afternoon sessions at the Unicaf Kenya offices in Nairobi.
