On the sign, the young man wrote:

Not asking for money, looking for work, please help.

In a tweet by @9ineti7even, the Twitter-user encourages people to share a picture of the young man standing with his sign.

The post reads:

"Let's make him trend."

It seems like the Twitter user's plan is working because the job hunter is trending and the post has over 8 000 retweets and 7 000 likes.

However, in a plot twist, the comments show a very hostile group of people who are picking on the young man's qualifications and his method of trying to find a job.

Let's dive into the murky comment section


"Open a law firm guy and make money from divorce settlement. Kante what did they teach you ko varsity?"


"I really wonder, so educated and uncreative those two don't add up. I would like to believe the more you are educated the more you are innovative to stand on your own feet..just education alone zizokhala."

But it's not all doom and gloom for those who went on to tackle tertiary education. Briefly News previously reported on Gift Somakwabe, a 24-year-old graduate, who stands as an example to others, motivating those she encounters as her dedication and perseverance lead her to obtain her third degree.

It's no surprise to see that Somakwabe's road has not come to an end as she confronts the next challenge of getting her CIA designation and Master's.

Humility and compassion extend from Somakwabe as she fills up her undoubtedly busy schedule with a YouTube channel (Gift Somakwabe) already consisting of over 140 videos designed to educate others looking to cement their place in the world.
