When you pay to get a job

Hi guys, there some recruitment firms in nairobi that charge you so that they can place u a job, ie. 2k, 1500, 500 they usually say ni ya cv database ama cv update… question is, are they real? can i pay and nipate job? has anyone here tried them and was successful? ama ukilipa ni waste of cash

genuine recruitment companies do not charge any fee hao ni cons, unless you are assured to get the job dont pay.

The real ones you pay when they get a job for you, hizo zingine where you pay first I don’t trust them, I mean whats in it for them to find a job when you pay upfront?

Some are genuine. You pay only a minimal registration fee like 1000 or so. They secure u interviews and once you get a job you pay them 1 months pay. Back in my employment days i secured several interviews and a job through one that had offices in ngara opposite post office. I found them effective. I also secured several interviews through myjobseye.com back then

The disclaimer says it all… We do NOT guarantee jobs… That disclaimer provides them with an avenue to run a legal con.
To pay or not to pay is the question.

Yea… also registered there got some interviews now workin.wanajiita management consultant.ukiskiza washenzi stingy and decide not to take risks you will never succeed .


Hiyo office yao iko building inaitwaje? And do they have a website? It is a risk worth taking.

I would say 5% of them are genuine but most are cons. Got my first job from one agency firm at the shell/BP house in Nairobi. I had to pay 2k for registration which took care of the emails and phone calls they made to me arranging for interviews and updates. I was informed from the beginning that once I got my contract, confirmed was real and signed it I will pay them 10k ya macho. Everything went smoothly and I landed my first job out of the country. That was about 4 years ago. @Jay_boss what I would advice you is to tread with caution do a lot of research online before you commit otherwise utalilia kwa bafu.


Yeah, management consultants ndio hao. I found them effective. They were on third floor of blessed house if i remember correctly

THANKS GUYS…Am sure this post was seen by less bt it helped many… THANKS ALL

Nice marketing strategy
