Career Expo: Come explore and interact with TOP tertiary institutions, companies and prospective employers
The prospect of a career choice is an issue that touches every young learner, organization, community and our economy profoundly. As is, the majority of our learners spend more time deciding what cars, phone, and clothes to buy than choosing a career. Could this be that career decision making is hard work or that our learners have difficult time accessing information about tertiary studies and career options available? If our learners make informed choices they are less likely to experience some of the consequences of poor choices or ineffective career guidance such as tertiary institutions drop out, late tertiary applications, unemployable youth market, completing a degree that one has no interest in, indecisive labour force market or unhappy workforce.
In order to help facilitate our young learners’ transition to tertiary and to the working world, Careers For A Powerful You Pty Ltd (C4U) has, since the beginning of the year, embarked on a journey throughout townships and rural areas in South Africa and now going to Mahikeng in the North West province to create a platform where our young learners access resources, opportunities, and sound advice from professionals to unlock their full potential and make informed decisions about their career path.
For our young learners – the Career expo is a platform to meet and interact with a wide variety of organizations in one location, in one day. This interaction allows them to tap into opportunities available within these organizations. Also, it is a platform where learners are proactive and search for solutions with regard to careers and challenges they currently face. Our core focus is to encourage innovation and creativity and produce sustainable development within our economy and community. We have identified the following as challenges that lie ahead for our learners: admissions, financial aid, earning extra income, opportunity identification, unemployment, how to start up a business, sound advice and questions about their future.
For our exhibitors – the career expo is a vibrant and revitalized platform for the public and the private sectors to profile themselves as employers of choice. This is an opportunity to meet with learners from various schools in and around Mahikeng. It also presents an unmatched opportunity for talent finders to promote their organisations and compete for the best available pool of talent and connect directly with potential employees, bursary recipients, provide employment and career information.
C4U is a member of the Shanduka Black Umbrellas programme which is an initiative to support and mentor black entrepreneurs to build sustainable businesses.
As a mobile career consulting firm, we specialize in career development within township and rural areas. This is done through educational and career events, publications and CSI Projects. Our mission is to empower our ‘future leaders’ in rural and township areas and to ensure equal access of information and resources. We connect young learners with educators, marketers, companies and mentors to create quality career and learning exposure.
