Overview:Careers on Trial detected a lack of exposure by scholars to the real work environment with the effect that they have a vague perception of what a certain career really entitles.
Research- and recruitment experience urged us to bridge this vacuum. Therefore we now create the opportunity for Grade 10 - 12 pupils be introduced to different careers by spending a day at various companies and/or institutions.
This will prevent the ‘error and trial’ way in finding the ideal career and will also give the Grade 10 student the advantage of choosing the right subjects for a certain career.
Careers on Trial is an extension of Korf Recruitment with a 10 year recruitment record with clients such as Momentum, Ernst & Young, Auto & General, Top Exec, GlenrandMIB, Dial Direct, First Rand Group, etc. We are specialists on the requirements of the job market. Students will remain on our database for the rest of his/her career path with the added advantage of possible employment / bursaries through our Business Partners.
Our Business Partners cover a variety of industries such Financial, Insurance, Communication & Marketing, Architecture, Security, Building & Construction, Education, Call Centre, Cooking, Entertainment, Computers, Psychology, Science & Research, Journalism, Engineering, Fitness, Medical, Beauty, Law, etc. A large number of corporate, well known companies are on board already.
Students will be allowed to visit as many companies and institutions as they choose and spend a day within that practical environment. Careers on Trial are not only for academic careers, but also for students engaging into any scholarship or apprenticeship. The companies will evaluate the student and Careers on Trial will provide this feedback as well as the student’s impressions back to you as the parent.
