- Two years after graduating, a man, Boet Joy Khulie, could still not find a job
- Instead of moping around and waiting for an opportunity to come to him, Khulie took matters into his own hands
- The graduate started a business that has been growing stronger and it inspired the county
A man has taken to social media to share how he became an entrepreneur. Boet Joy Khulie shared his inspiring story on the #ImStaying Facebook page on Saturday.
He revealed he struggled to get a job for two years after graduating from varsity. The sad reality is that many suffer the same fate but Khulie decided not to sit and wait for an opportunity to land in his lap.
Instead he founded his own company and it has been going ever since.
His post read:
"Two years down the line after graduating and no luck of getting any job. I then decided to open a small restaurant that sell chips and kota. It started small and it's getting bigger and better every day. If you can't get employed, then employ yourself."
South Africans were inspired by his hustle and they applauded Khulie online.
Glynnis Bartlett commented:
"Well done, yes there are not jobs out there for all these university graduates, well done on getting on and doing something, wishing you lots of success."
Diane Parry said:
"Well done, may you grow your business daily."
Nosipho Tshabane added:
"That's the way to go these days. I hope some of your unemployed peers can follow suit."
