Career Development & Graduate Employability Seminar

The 2023 South African unemployment statistics indicate that 10% of graduates are unemployed amongst the 32.1% unemployed people in South Africa. The South African youth continue to be vulnerable in the labour market. This calls for serious action as the youth is regarded as the future of this country.

The above statistics indicate that:
- There are a lot of people looking for a job, both young and old, in the country.
- There is a great discrepancy between people looking for a job compared to the number of job opportunities available in the country.
- The economic structure of the country has a huge effect on the unemployed people and the use of technology has made it worse.
- It suggests that anyone looking for a job should do it the smart way and position themselves correctly, though the use of social media and technology.

It is against the above-mentioned backdrop that the Career Development and Employability Seminar Series, proposed for the 25th of May 2024 in Johannesburg, will be of great help to many young people in the country. This seminar will not only be directed to unemployed graduates, but it will include those who are in tertiary education, interns, and graduate programmes and those who are looking for better employment opportunities.

The seminar is aimed at:
  • Teaching and practically guiding participants/attendees on how to write a successful, targeted, and attractive CV.
  • Empowering participants/attendees with skills on how to develop a personal brand and how to brand themselves using technology and social media.
  • Helping participants/attendees with job interview skills.
  • ​Guiding participants/attendees on how to use the internet for job search and how to apply.
  • ​Exposing participants/attendees to job opportunities and entrepreneurial opportunities for those who are interested in stating their own business.
