We are are just one recruitment companies yet every single month in 2018 we managed to get a number of candidates who had been unemployed working again. Going into November we have managed to reach double digits. There are people who were retrenched, depressed and worried.
We are just one recruitment company – there are over 4000 recruitment companies in Johannesburg alone.
Companies are not sure if they want to hire when they do hire they hire fast and people who are available immeditely often have a distinct advantage.
Please remember your situation is temporary. It is not permamant it will pass.
It is impossible for you to believe this but most things in life happen at the right place in the right time. If you attend an interview please try to keep the following in mind. If you do not get the position – it was not meant for you. The universe unfolds as it should. This just allows you to relax and be yourself. Try to be kind to yourself.
In 18 months you will not remember this time. If you do remember this time it will have made you into a more compassionate person.
To use the famous quote “ Everything will work out perfectly in the end and if it is not perfect yet then it is not the end”
Please remember I am not simply trying to cheer you with empty words. The industry is getting people working again.
