This is Mr Kioko. Mr Kioko has given me permission to write this entry, and to use his name in full.
Every now and then he pops up on google chat and we talk about his on-going effort to find a good job: he has a very clear goal of being a system administrator, and has been focussed on this since I met him. I enjoyed working with him because he had a clear view of how he could profit from my experience and learn what he needed to meet his own ends. He asked me, before I left, to write him a reference letter, I had forgotten about that, he scanned it and sent it back to me to remind me what I wrote because it turns out to have been useful to him. I signed it with all my post-nominal letters and qualifications; it made me laugh to think of it being read aloud in a job interview ..
but I’m getting ahead of myself.
