Yes, absolutely!

Is there an app I can download?
No there’s no need to download anything, as the tool works on a web browser.

What if I’m not interested in the suggested jobs? Am I able to look at other jobs?
If you don’t like one of the listed positions, you can click on the trash icon and then the next job group will appear. Don’t worry if you change your mind later on, you can go look for your deleted jobs in the menu tab.

How do I find out what skills are needed for each job?
Below each job you’ll find a short description of the role.

Will the results change after I do each one of the tests?
Yes, they’ll automatically update if there is a change in your skills and the more tests you do the more accurate your results will be.

Can I do the same test multiple times?
Yes, you can continue to do the test until you’re happy with your results.

What happens if I click out of a test before completing it?
If you exit the web browser before completing the quiz, you’ll need to start that test again.

If I use the tool, will my chances increase of getting an internship/apprenticeship/graduate role?
This tool isn’t used for recruitment, so unfortunately won’t increase your chances of getting a job. The tool is about helping you understand whats jobs you are suited for and to find the right job opportunity for you.

Can I apply to job postings directly through the tool?
As soon as you find a job position that you want to apply for, click the button and you’ll be linked through to a job board where you can start the application process.

Can I apply to job postings which are not in my home country?
No, this tool is designed to be used in Kenya only.

Will the listed jobs take into account my skills and education level?
Yes, they will. After the first quiz we’ll ask you what your highest level of education is and combined with the skills attributed to you during the quiz it will recommend you a job most suited.

Are the e-Learning courses free?
The e-Learning platforms are external to BLAZE LINK, but we’ve matched them with the job categories that are best for you. The best thing of this all is that most of them are totally free to use!

Do I receive a certificate of completion?
Not for the moment but you will be given your top strengths and attributes. Pretty cool eh?!

Will a potential employer have access to these results?
We won’t share these results as we’re only here to help you reach your full potential, but you can use the results to boost your CV by adding results to your top skills.
