TechInAfrica – South Africa now has a new online recruitment platform for skillful graduates, interns, and apprentices. The platform is RecruitAGraduate and was founded by Phillipa Geard who happens to be the founder of RecruitMyMom.co.za. It helps to connect graduates from reputable institutions with employers.
It completed its trial phase in March and opened for job seekers and professionals starting from this month.
According to Phillipa Geard, RecruitAGraduate does not only offering its range of services but also help businesses in the lookout of young talent with a less expensive budget.
“Modern recruitment practices and mega-online job portals are valuable tools for mainstream job placements, but its brute force approach can be inefficient for smaller businesses and first-time job seekers,” said Geard cited from itnewsafrica.com.
Generally, the platform aims at helping young talents who have fewer job experiences such as vocational graduates to find a job position that can be a jumping stone for their successful career.
Following the success of RecruitMyMom.co.za which was awarded as Job Creator of the Year at the 2018 Entrepreneur of the Year Awards, RecruitAGraduate will also use the same model in terms of how it works.
“At RecruitAGraduate, prospective employers can choose from a self-service option, with a small listing fee, or an affordable, professional recruitment service, where one of our team members will help them find and place the right candidate. For the latter, payment is only made when we make a successful placement, and we offer a three-month warranty” Geard explained.
He added, “At the same time, we help graduates by exclusively focusing on them. Our platform is geared to present graduates, interns and apprentices in the best possible light through our online help and CV template service.
