Less Marketable Courses In Kenya 2022
To have an advantage in the job market, we all know that you should have an academic degree.
Going into college or university-level of education has enhanced an easier way of getting employment. However, a degree won’t guarantee a job.
I have seen countries ending up with jobless, bright, graduates, each day of my life.
I have seen thousands of graduates turn up to an advertised job interview, yet only one or two individuals are needed.
To lessen your worry, pursuing a marketable course will assist you to eliminate yourself from this frustrating circumstance.
When deciding on a course to pursue, you must be very keen on the dynamics of professional growth.

Carelessly enrolling for one, might get yourself pursuing an unsalable course. To avoid this, here is a list of flooded courses to enable you to think carefully before you enrol for them.
List of Flooded Courses in Kenya
Art courses are amongst the most flooded courses in Kenya unlike in well-developed nations where the market is high.
Kenya is a 3rd world country, people do not find any reason for investing in art as they do in economic matters, which is normal.
Art Course demands a high level of creativity therefore lack of it will render you jobless upon completion of studies. Unless you are planning to become self-employed, think carefully before pursuing this course.
In as much as there are many creative people, art still constitutes the least marketable courses list.
Criminal justice is not marketable because Kenya has failed to invest much in hiring a professional in this field.
One may think that there will be a demand for criminologists because of many insecurity incidences but gloomily, no. All that has been left for the policemen to manage.

According to the KUCCPS report, the hospitality course is unsalable due to its less demand in the job market. The course is flooded with jobless graduates.
The majority of Hospitality graduates have ended up working in organisations such as banks as receptionists, which is not anything one would imagine they would end up doing when selecting the course.
4.Bachelor of Commerce (BCOM)
Although Bachelor of Commerce (BCOM) is flooded, if a person pursues CPA, KASNEB, CFA or ACCA on top of his degree paper, he will be marketable.
Engineering courses are certainly amongst the most marketable careers in the country but trust me, not all of them.
There is close to no demand for chemical engineers in the country making the career unmarketable. When you choose to do this course, strive to work in more developed countries such as the United States of America.
Among the most flooded courses in Kenya is Mass Communication. Most people enrol for it with the mind that it is simple to study and get a job. The bad news is that the Kenyan media companies have preferred to choose comedians as their workers than the experts.
This is due to competition for viewers and listeners. They compete to expand their outreach. To get a working opportunity in this field, one has to be very competitive and productive unless they end up working as salespersons or resolve to pursue agriculture.

7.Bachelor of Education
Bachelor of Education is another course that has disappointed many. I know some will argue but this is another bitter truth. 2020 data from the teachers’ employer TSC indicates that over 300,000 registered teachers are jobless.
However one may be lucky to get employed depending on the subject combination, some stay for over 6 years without employment. The only job that is half guaranteed is that of BOM that pays between Sh.10,000 to 27,000.
Other Courses Include:
- Gender Development.
- Political Science.
- Records Management.
- Theology, Youth Ministry, and Biblical Studies.
- Library courses.
- Forestry and Environmental Planning.
- Animal Husbandry.
- Childcare and Protection.
- Psychology and Counselling
- Meteorology program.
- Development studies.
- Geographic information science.
Every program has its usefulness, question is, can it get you employment in Kenya? Before you register for a course seek career advice so that you do not end up spending away years pursuing a less relevant course. Know your strengths because in some circumstances, no matter how flooded a course might be, some still succeed in doing well due to their ability and uniqueness.
