Re: water and environmental engineering

Dear Ms. Kimuri,

Your academic performance, backed by brief internship is excellent and encouraging.
You should be able to get an appropriate job in WASH sector.

There are many organizations in WASH sector. WaterAid is a major one. You need to be a bit more active on the internet. Once you do that, you will get vacancy announcements and alerts in the mailbox. Also get your enrolled with some head-hunters.

Wish you success in your endeavours!

Best wishes,

Re: water and environmental engineering

Not that I can offer you a job, but maybe you should rather post something about your practical work/internship experiences and other skills you might have (f.e. languages)?
Because believe it or not, but academic transcripts tell very little about what you can actually do and are rather just a basic foundation one has to have as a minimum requirement to be even considered for a job (they basically only prove that you have had sufficient schooling and time to be exposed to the general topic to be able to work in the sector).
