Lulaway, the country's leading youth employment engine, which has already placed 35 000 young people in jobs, offers its top picks for easiest access to the youth job market. They are not necessarily long-term prospects, but can help a young person achieve their long-term goals.

Consequently, we have been able to identify pockets of opportunity where young people have a higher chance of finding employment, gaining experience, social networks and financial stability. It’s critical for young people to strategically plan how to enter the job market, keeping in mind both long- and short-term goals.”

Willis advises, “Keep your eye on the big picture – your eventual career goals, but know that these entry-level jobs develop your grit, your reliability and make you much more work-ready and liable to succeed in the future when you find your dream job.”
