Youth Capital's Advice for Matrics Looking to Enter the Workforce

Kristal Duncan-Williams from Youth Capital gave some advice for Matrics looking to enter the workforce immediately. Youth unemployment is a major issue in South Africa and greater focus needs to be placed on not only graduates looking for work, but Matriculants as well.

Youth Capital has an action plan when it comes to Matric students stepping into the workforce. They then help Matrics find resources which will help them.

For those who will not be studying further, Kristal assures them that there are a range of entry-level opportunities available for young people. 

Young people, people aged 15 to 34, are also advised to ask for reference letters and put all your experience on your CV, including your skills. 

SAYouth.mobi is also a good website for youth wanting to kickstart their careers. They provide learning and earning opportunities. As a bonus, it's free and zero-rated.

Youth Capital is also partnering with Job Starter who'll be launching a platform for young people in May where they can have access to career coaching opportunities.

Harambee also helps combat youth unemployment by providing better access to them to opportunities.
