Aid for a graduate
Young graduates find it difficult in getting a job related to their qualification after a completion of their bachelor’s or graduate degrees. It is frequently the case for students within black dominant or previously disadvantaged institutions. My thought in this is that institutes need to play bigger roles in training and employment of the students. The institute could subject contractual or part-time posts for graduates
Young people find themselves standing in the crossroads of nowhere after completing their graduate degrees. This is a point where they feel that all that time spent in a three or four year programme and addition of two to three years was a waste of time and money. It is a time I am much familiar too. I basically had no idea what was next-either I go search for work or continue doing my graduate studies. Months and weeks went on till the next the year, until such a time I decided it was better going back to university. This was a difficult decision to make, because my parents expected me to find work after a bachelor. Without employment I was overwhelmed but at the same time I was happy-I mean heading back to school for my graduate studies was great. The numbers of bIack South African institutes in country are below the worst of national rankings. Now this creates a stigma in the quality or the weight of a degree obtained from the different institutes around South Africa. This is to say for an example; if you as an individual obtained a physics graduate or an undergraduate degree from the University of Limpopo or University of Venda –it would not be of equal quality as that of a student who obtained a degree from perhaps University of Cape Town. These Grads (graduates) from these institutes are victims to prejudice because of the quality or the standard of an institute. In my opinion I think the institutes in which the graduates is eligible of qualifying, the instates ought to provide at least a part time or a contract job opportunities for these graduates for example internships, junior lectures etc.
