Choosing the right career can be difficult. Where do you start? The traditional three-step career plan is outdated. Graduate from college, get a job and work your way up the corporate ladder for the next 40 years. Today’s professionals switch job titles frequently, toggling between many companies, teams and industries throughout the course of their careers. But how do you make the right career choice?

College students are often under the impression that they’ll get a well-paying job as soon as they graduate from college. Unfortunately, with South Africa’s current unemployment rate, finding a job that soon after completing their studies remains a pipe dream for most. Some graduates are fortunate enough to find work in their field of interest soon after graduation, while others spend months looking for work; some are even willing to accept an unpaid internship to gain experience. 


The pressure to select a career path can be a confusing and daunting experience for most grade 12 learners.  This leads to many matriculants from disadvantaged communities leaving school with little to no information about continuing post-matric due to a lack of career guidance.


The world of work is changing constantly, profoundly, and faster. This is clear from the outsourcing of work, waves of technological advances, increasing automation in business, and big data analysis driving the growth of industries.
