By Soweto Career Expo
The upcoming 12th Annual Soweto Career Day & Expo 2019 is scheduled to take place on the 23 & 24 May 2019 at the Diepkloof multi-purpose hall, Soweto.
The 12th Annual Soweto Career Day and Expo 2019 has adopted the "Send me" campaign that our president Mr. Cyril Ramaphosa instils in us and aligned ourselves to the Youth Employments services initiative and the upcoming job summit..
Our Theme will be around the Career awareness and employability and we have invited speakers to address the professional from the education, training, recruitment and human resource sector including our youth. This event is set to be largest careers, employability and Recruitment Expo, dedicated to finding solutions for high levels of unemployment in Gauteng.
South Africa requires a skills revolution to equip our young people with the know-how required to participate and compete successfully in the modern global economy and the unfolding fourth industrial revolution, which is being driven by rapid advances in digital and other technologies.
Young South Africans need to be trained in a range of emerging new disciplines from computer sciences and biotechnology, to nanotechnology, coding, robotics and artificial intelligence. Research chairs focused on these emerging 21st century technologies should be established at our higher education institutions to give our economy the skills and dynamism it needs to be competitive.
This year, Career’s Inc has partnered with Intouch Africa, a specialist sponsorship marketing and events project management consulting agency that has grown our vision for the Career Expo. The event is not just a careers expo but also a deeper look into the employability skills that are needed in South Africa.
The Gauteng Youth Skills and Employability Indaba is dedicated to finding solutions for high levels of unemployment in Gauteng. It is dedicated to influencing and assisting youth and students across Gauteng to align their career choices and skill sets with local and global employment demands.
The Indaba will also provide an excellent networking opportunity for private and public sector delegates to exchange valuable developmental concepts to assist our youth to gain access to employment and development opportunities in Gauteng.
This Indaba will be part of the Soweto Career Day and Expo, which is celebrating its 12th year of empowering the youth of Soweto with career guidance through its expo that has already been attended by over 55 000 scholars and youth to date, and has been supported by over 200 corporate & government departments.
The indaba therefore seeks to deal with those many issues and create a platform for human resource managers from corporate and government, training institutions, training facilitators, universities and recruitment agencies to connect and all work together to deal with these challenges openly in order to create a working methodology to accelerate employment in Gauteng.
