Why we do it
- The division came about as a result of the company’s involvement in the graduate placement space for the past 7 years through National Forum of Unemployed Graduates South Africa (NAFUGSA) and the struggle we noticed as a result.
- Deficiency to engage effectively, strategically and persuasively at job interviews and /or to convey competence confidence and professionalism in workplace encounters lead to rejection of even the most brilliant candidate.
- What this means is students are unable to demonstrate sufficiently that they possess skills and attributes employers are seeking and about two thirds of employers cast-off candidates seemingly because job seekers fail to clearly articulate their abilities and demonstrate their competence in a clear and concise manner, Weakening their chances to build credibility , rapport and instantly losing employer’s trust.
- We also observed that whilst embarking on the Career Journey the first point of reference for most young people is internet and as valuable as its proven in the past, concerns have been raised by youngsters about the number of career information websites available and ease of navigation of such websites this is mainly due to the fact that a range of information available is fragmented, diverse, lacks personalization, difficult to navigate, no validation of sources, leaving young people feeling overwhelmed and disengaged thus resulting in losing interest quickly as the information is not specific or filtered well.
