@Vikkybolt, how were the medicals....you out yet?
@Masinde gift, go to the Careers page on kQ site and create a profile. Do not forget to fill in your KCSE details or your application won't be considered. Then do a job search on the database for Ab Initio and apply. Since interviews are ongoing you'll have to wait for the next batch; say 4-6 months from Now. Don't loose hope....you really need it here. All the best

@Farmwe, I was in that Second group. We did our psychometric late but were invited for the PILAPT at the same time. I really doubt you are out, If till now your application is still active; then trust me, you are in! I think you should call HR to confirm. If not, just keep praying. The other applications were terminated a long time ago

@Vikkybolt, how about some news on the Medicals, keep us in the loop here! @ Farmwe, a quick call to HR should serve you well; reading back through the thread, cases like yours are very common; KQ are not very concerned as to contact you as to why you missed an interview or appointment. As long as your application reads active you need to keep trying to reach them.
Anyone with an Idea as to what they'll be checking in the medicals come friday? As for vikkybolt and others who went for the Medicals yesterday, are you done oe do you still have other appointments?

Would anyone be as kind as to direct me to international house? Is it in town?
In other news, Who else has received this email about getting our documents in order? Funny though, it reads "As we await for the medical results" yet some of us haven't even seen the doctor. Leaves one wondering whether this is some operation 'sahau wengine'

International House

@Evroza, International House is located next to Hilton Hotel, from Kencom building it on the street heading left. It has internationa flags and you won't miss to notice it. KQ medical center is the first at the entrance.
Hope this is helpful ? and guess we are in the same group, i will be there on friday 8.30 AM.

Yes, you are supposed to reply to yesterday's mail confirming if you have all the documents. Once you've done so and they realise you still don't have the documents you will get the tongue lashing of the year! Had applied for the good conduct certificate today, i should have it tommorrow. As for the yellow fever jab, am going back to town to get it right now.
