Isatou Ceesay on probation!

I am Isatou A. Ceesay. I’m a twenty-four year old lady, currently staying at Wellingara, kombo North.

I was under the scholarship of stichting Scholenplan Gambia from my junior level until i completed my Bachelor of science degree in Accounting at the University of The Gambia. I attended the University for four good years studying Accounting and completed with an honours degree in Accounting ( CUM LAUDE).

It is very hard to secure a job one wants here in the Gambia because of this connection thing people called it, if one doesn’t know anyone in the high ranks or you do not have any link with them forget it because you will never be considerd.

It took me so long to get one, but currently I am at Foresight Chartered Accountant at Bakau who also doesn’t employ me yet but took me on probation for three to four months, so as to assess me base on my performance, at the end of the day if they are satisfy with my work then they can employ me as a permanent staff.

At Foresight I am working there as an Auditor and am part of the technical team going to different companies or organisations to prepare and examines financial records. We ensure that financial records are accurate and that taxes are paid properly and on time, we also assess financial operations and work to help ensure that organisations run efficiently.

At this juncture, I will like to give a special thanks to my sponsors whom I can never repay. They helped us in all aspects during our studies in both cash and kind. They made us who we are, we will ever b grateful to you. Thank you once more for everything.
