|Unemployment – What can I do?|
StatsSA recently reported that South Africa has an unemployment rate of 25%. That means that one quarter of South Africans do not have jobs.
In a country where we believe in equal chances for everyone, that is very unequal.Why is it that so many people do not have jobs? More importantly, how do you make sure that you are not one of the unemployed masses?
Why is there unemployment in South Africa? There is a really big problem in South Africa that causes unemployment. The problem is that in many cases people cannot get a good education. And, without a good education, it’s difficult to get a job.
How do we solve this problem? We are responsible for our own happiness. Nobody is going to care about your happiness if you do not care about it first. In other words, you have to make the first move to get out of your current situation, especially if you are unemployed. You have to go out and look for a job. Or, if you need to study to be able to get a better job, you must make the first move to find the right course to study.
It starts with you.
But I do not have any money. How do I pay for my studies? I know that it costs a lot of money to be able to study. So what do you do if you are unemployed but you want to study so that you can get a good job? There are a few options open to you. You can get a job first before you start studying. This will mean that you probably will earn a bit less than what you will once you have studied. But the truth is that you need money to be able to study and the best way to get money is to start working. You then have the choice to study and work at the same time with distance learning. If you already have a job but you need some more money to be able to study, you can always ask your company if they will help you pay for your studies. Your company will benefit from you studying, so there is always a good chance that they will be willing to help you.

So there is hope for me? Yes! As you can see, the first step towards studying is to get a job. This sounds like it is the wrong way around, I know. But for most of us it is the only way to get a good education. Luckily you can work and study at the same time with a good distance learning college like College SA. Get out there and make a change to your life.
You are the only one who can do it.
