    1. Hello Grace,

      As fresher Jobs Uganda, we don’t handle applications. That’s the job of the employer so please contact them directly.
      However, if you were requested to use a functional email then they meant it. Emails are everything in the job application process so you cannot make any mistakes.
      If you are fortunate and your application was successful, they will call you via a phone call. But that’s a probability.

    Am wondering how it can be accessed by umeme.
    Do I bring it personally?

    1. Hello,

      Thanks for contacting us. Unfortunately, we do not know.
      However, if you have not received a response within a month or less from an employer, your application was most likely unsuccessful.
