The GOAL2WORK job search programme was developed by the Options Group, an organisation with over twenty five-years’ experience in recruitment & career guidance. Realising the need for a formal & well-designed job search intervention the Options Directors’ harnessed the skills of recruitment industry experts, career specialists, educationalists & career consultants to create the programme.
With a deep conviction that multi-layered, goal directed, job seeking training would empower job seekers to fulfil their right to meaningful employment, these specialists collaborated to develop & refine this ground breaking programme.
GOAL2WORK was designed, not only to develop job seeking skills but also, to foster the self-esteem & confidence necessary to conduct a powerful job search & manage interviews with self-assurance.
Why We Developed GOAL2WORK:
- Over 50% of South Africa's youth are unemployed
- Multi-generational unemployment means no job search role models
- Inexperienced job seekers lack knowledge of job seeking strategies
- Lack of effective job search interventions perpetuates unemployment
- GOAL2WORK provides the missing link between skills development & job creation
