In this episode I speak to Audrey, Chief Happiness Officer and Founder at Harpie HR, a recruitment and HR Consulting business based out of Nairobi that was borne out of her many career moves and stints of more than a decade in the world of work in Kenya.
Audrey and I met at Strathmore College at the time, now Strathmore University as both of us began our journey pursuing the highly reputed programs in IT.
In this episode, Audrey shares her career journey as she made a changeover from IT to pursuing a degree in Public Relations at Daystar University and later on an MBA in Human Resources from United States International University (USIU) and a finally a Higher National Diploma.
Perhaps the most epic aspect of our discussion is the twists and turns she encountered in the world of work that have brought her thus far.
From the unconventional career path starting out as a waitress at one of Nairobis High end Coffee houses and Restaurants as a University Graduate that taught her so much about business to her pivot later on to the world of Human Resourcing and recruitment where she eventually ventured into as a business.
Audrey’s journey is as epic as it is full of pivotal career lessons as it is indeed an unbeaten path that many will resonate with especially in such a time as now full of uncertainty and the need to redefine oneself and make career moves as needed.
We pick up our conversation as Audrey shares her journey and the path she pursued post completing her IT Qualification….
Listen in and be inspired.
