I recently graduated as MSc in Political Science from Denmark. During my studies I had a lot of focus on Africa and especially on the topic China's engagement in Africa. For my thesis I did field study in Kampala in Uganda. My dream would be to get a career in Nairobi or another African capital. I have been applying from Denmark for several jobs in NGOs, which are based in Kenya and other Sub Saharan African countries without any success. As newly graduated I don’t have a lot of work experience, however I got a PRINCE2 Practioner certificate (project management).
I would like hear your opinion on my idea on just trying my luck by going to Nairobi for around two weeks, and looking for jobs there. Is this crazy idea, or could there be some opportunities in it? Have you heard about other people doing the same thing, and do you have any suggestions on how to improve my chances?
