“Dawg we are also grads, go to a retail store, pride won't help u in anyway.”
“Retail can't hire all of us, but the field can, this guy went to the direct sunlight, is there any pride about being on a street. Do you know how many rejections does this guy go through to sell that bag? You are talking from retail aircon.. point of view I see.”
“If God can bless us with our own companies, that's why our white colleagues don't take seriously at work cause every day they see one of us looking for work, but God will bless South Africa.”
“This usually happens if you leave school without ever doing exceptionally well at your internship. I always advise these kids to put in the extra effort at internship so the people that make the hiring decisions will notice them and take them in full time after graduation.”
“We have a lot of graduates who are unemployed you know why ? Because all these companies want experience and they don't care where you get it or how you get they just want experience.”
