Jobs for matriculants in Cape Town, Johannesburg, Pretoria, Durban, Port Elizabeth and other regions of South Africa are perhaps not as scarce as many school leavers and their parents think. Many believe that employment is impossible to find due to the economic times and while this may be the case for certain industries and companies, there are many businesses looking to employ students that have matriculated as their company grows and expands. Positions can be found and applied for providing a person looks in the right places and gets in at the right times.
So just what kind of jobs for matriculants are there in South Africa? Well, what are your skills? There are positions available in health services, banking and financial services, engineering sectors and industrial areas. There is quite a selection out there and obviously a former student needs to narrow things down a little first to find the jobs available in the area they are qualified. Many matrics accept apprentice type positions which set them up at the bottom of the ladder in a company and allow them to learn the ropes before they progress.
What most young people should really be aiming for in the future is to become entrepreneurs themselves one day and have that long-term vision in mind when they start work. It is great to start working for a company to begin gaining vital work experience and laying a foundation to set things up for possible future business. If you are a student that is fresh out of matric and looking for employment in a certain sector then hopefully you too can grow enough to start your own business one day and be able to offer jobs for matriculants at your own company.
