An opportunity of a lifetime through the EOH 702 Job Challenge

CEO of Primedia, Roger Jardine, has appealed to CEOs and senior executives of companies to participate in the EOH 702 Job Challenge.

The initiative, in partnership with government, EOH and 702, employs young graduates into their companies as interns to empower them for the future. Research has found that employers are more amiable to employing people who have work experience over someone with a degree but lacks experience.

Jardine highlighted the challenges South Africa is faced with, particularly poverty and high youth unemployment, which he hopes he can help to alleviate.

The campaign aims to create 100 000 jobs by 2020 through work experience, mentorship and skills training.

Listen to the interview below:

A good start is to bring these young people into the work place, give them experience, let them see what the day-to-day is like through various parts of the operation and hopefully to be absorbed and illustrate to other other employers that they can add value.

Roger Jardine, Primedia CEO

It does work and I think with intensified efforts, hopefully we create more employment.
