What is it about?

In South Africa, graduate unemployment rates are generally lower than the rest of the world. however, there are certain groups of graduates who still struggle to get jobs. The findings show that lack of relevant work experience, limited information about an efficient job search, low social capital, and high costs of work-seeking create obstacles to securing work.

Why is it important?

It is important because it aims at ensuring significant investments in post-secondary education and training on the part of both the state and the individual graduate are realised.


This article is based on findings from my Master's dissertation which is exciting for me as it is my first publication. I hope that the readers will find it interesting and useful.
