Tips to Find Jobs for YOUTH
The most vital step to land a job is preparing for the interview.
Most of the time, only properly trained applicants go through the process feeling cool and calm.
After attending a two-day workshop last week, jobless youths from the KwaDukuza Municipality felt confident their situations would change.
The 11 young people who attended the event, organised by the municipality and the United States diplomatic mission in South Africa, received job readiness certificates on Thursday.
The workshop was aimed at people with little or no experience.
They were shown how to prepare for job interviews, create well-structured CVs, build self-confidence and apply for jobs online.
Sinenhlanhla Ncanana (22), from Shombela in Stanger, said she learned how to properly structure a CV. “I am unemployed and maybe one of the reasons I don’t get jobs is because my CV was not well structured”
Chairman of the portfolio committee on youth, sport and gender John Phahla said they appreciated the opportunity given to the youth.
He said the workshop gave them the necessary skills to apply for jobs online.
He said it was something many employers identified as a problem.
“The youth have been given an opportunity to develop their own action list on how to market themselves, prepare for interviews, search and find potential opportunities for jobs.
“We encourage the youth to use this job preparation workshop as an instrument to master every interview obstacle they might encounter,” said Phahla.

NB: Do not pay for any job placement, a job cannot be sold. The job has to pay you not the other way round. Here are some tips for you to identify jobs that are not real. HOW TO SEE IF A JOB IS A SCAM/FAKE Below are ten tips to see if a job is a scam. Note that on this website we do not post such kind of jobs. 1.They Use Personal/free email instead of company email. , e.g: (hotmail. gmail, webmail, yahoo, mail e.t.c). Sometime their email will say Eskom@gmail.com, Transnet@webmail.com or Netcare@yahoo.com. The companies mail should say Eg email@example.com, recruitment@Transnet.com or Mothobi@Netcare.co.za it can't be eskom@gmail it must be statement them after @ is name of company not before @
2. They Use Personal Cell Number Instead of a Land-line/company tell (e.g. 073, 082. 061. 060 e.t.c) Companies use 011, 021, 041, 057, 031 ETC.
3. They Need Upfront fee for the job placement (e.g. pay R120 for your Job placement or Test) company needs you not other way round so they can't ask for money why can't they take it from your salary when they hire you? Even recruitment agency are paid by companies that require people.
4.They Rent CBD Flats for their interviews and fake tests , (e.g. what house commissioner street johannesburg flat/Floor no.22)
5. They require many people to Apply (e.g 100 people needed to work at call centre immediately) and requirements are simple that almost everyone qualify
6. They always have many different fake fields for everyone (Drivers, Cleaners, Call Centre, Nanny, Security Jobs e.t.c)
7. Their Job Posts are always : With or Without Qualifications/Experience
8. Some uses SMS Like : sms CLEAN to 4392 (This is just an example) or Comment with Yes or Phone Numbers
9. They Frequently Advertise the same Job Ad throughout the year
10. Their Job Content has less information and don't have Application End Date/ Closing Date. So, be warned and be cautious when you see jobs like these and never pay for a job, your job has to pay you. Thank you
