On Wednesday, a new government recruitment scheme was met with mixed reactions from the graduates who are supposed to benefit from it.
The Public Service Graduate Recruitment Scheme‚ which was launched by Public Service and Administration Minister Ayanda Dlodlo at the University of Johannesburg (UJ)‚ is the government’s response to resolving the problem of unemployed graduates.
But not everyone was convinced following Dlodlo’s address, with some saying they were left with more questions than answers.
Ayanda Madondo‚ an intern at the Department of Infrastructure‚ said she was not convinced the scheme would improve graduates’ chances of getting full-time employment. "It’s one of those things that the government introduces. [It looks] good on paper, but is not really sustainable because it’s all well and good to have internships over one to two years‚ but what happens when these come to an end, because we are still not employable? Job vacancies want five years of work experience."
