Cape Town, 16 May 2023 – The latest figures from the Quarterly Labour Force Survey (QLFS), released by Stats SA today, highlight the pressing issue of unemployment in South Africa. While the decrease in the number of unemployed persons is encouraging, it is crucial for individuals to make well-informed career choices to maximize their chances of employment and long-term success.
In light of these statistics, Optimi Classroom is proud to introduce Career Compass, a powerful tool designed to assist individuals in conducting comprehensive career audits. By evaluating their skills, interests, and compatibility with different career paths, individuals can avoid investing time and money in studying areas that may not align with their natural talents or interests.
“Career Compass by Optimi Classroom is an innovative solution that enables learners to make informed decisions about their educational and career paths,” says Managing Director, Aunyana Moloisane. “By utilizing our platform, individuals can gain valuable insights into their strengths, weaknesses, and potential career opportunities. This empowers them to select courses or career paths that have a higher likelihood of leading to employment and personal fulfillment.”
Career Compass can play a vital role in addressing the unemployment challenges faced by individuals in society. By conducting a career audit and making informed choices, individuals can enhance their employability and contribute to reducing the official unemployment rate.
“Furthermore, we understand the importance of collaboration between educational institutions and learners,” Moloisane continued. “To support this, Career Compass can be included in schools’ budgets, allowing educational institutions to assist all their learners in making informed career decisions. By investing in our platform, schools can ensure that their learners are equipped with the necessary tools to navigate their educational and career journeys successfully.”
Career Compass by Optimi Classroom is committed to empowering individuals with the knowledge and guidance they need to embark on fulfilling careers.
“We invite educational institutions, learners, and all stakeholders to join us in our mission to combat unemployment by making informed career choices,” Moloisane concluded.
