KenGen Internship Opportunities for Fresh Graduates: How to Apply
Kenya Electricity Generating Company (KenGen) said that they will be hiring a large number of interns for the years 2023 and 2024.
In an ad that was published in local newspapers on Tuesday, January 11, KenGen asked recent college graduates to apply for internships in one of 25 different fields.
Graduates were asked to finish their applications by midnight on January 17.
“KenGen is seeking to recruit qualified and result-oriented individuals as interns. Interested candidates are required to submit their applications online through our career portal,” the advert read in part.
KenGen is looking to hire librarians, officers in charge of communication, accountants, officers, and civil, mechanical, and electronic engineers.
There are also internships for technicians, hydrologists, geologists, property officers, and Information and Communications Technology (ICT) officers.
The company said it was a fair place to work and warned people that they would be kicked out if they were caught canvassing, lying, or misrepresenting their qualifications.

WARNING TO KENYANS
KenGen has identified a viral advertisement that charged Kenyans up to Ksh400,000 for an advertising chance.
The advertisement exploited KenGen’s official letterhead to promote opportunities that did not exist.
In the letter that went viral, individuals and businesses were invited to celebrate KenGen’s 25th anniversary and given instructions on how to do so.
The government of Kenya reformed the energy sector in January 1998 by separating power generating, transmission, and distribution.
“The exercise birthed KenGen and we are now celebrating our 25th anniversary,” the now-flagged advert read in part.
According to the letter, KenGen recruited a business partner to assist with the company’s anniversary celebration.
If Kenyans and businesses wished to participate in KenGen’s 25th anniversary celebrations, they were instructed to contact the outsourced company.
It was the exclusive responsibility of the outsourced company to handle advertising for the publication’s monthly edition.
Kenyans and other interested parties were granted the following advertising rates: Ksh90,000 for a quarter page, Ksh145,000 for a half page, Ksh250,000 for a full page, and Ksh400,000 for a center spread.
KenGen said in a public announcement that it had not hired the aforementioned advertising agency.
“We have received an alert over a fake document being circulated on social media,” the power production company denounced the advert.
“We urge the public to remain vigilant and bring such cases to our attention or report them to the nearest police station,” KenGen advised members of the public.
