Silulo Ulutho Technologies in partnership with Kovacs is giving away bursaries

Education is one of the most important resources we have available to us. However , regardless of how essential it is, it is not available to us all. Sometimes through different circumstances we are no longer able to receive the benefits that education provides. Many people and organizations attempt to change this by offering to take on some of the burden that comes with pursuing knowledge. We at Silulo are proud to say that through Kovacs we are now able to offer bursaries to people in order for them to come and study with us so that they may further their education and so improve their lives. This is a vital opportunity and we suggest everyone to take a hold of it and to apply. The details of the bursary are as follows:

Kovacs has 40 bursaries to be given to students for the 6 Month End User Computer Course in one of the below areas, meaning these bursaries can only be offered to those who can attend at branches in the following areas:

Interview with Bulelwa Mpotololo ( End Use Computer Course student, Phillipi Village branch).

As a young and ambitious student in an emerging country, I’m eager to begin my journey to fulfill my goals with Silulo Ulutho Technologies. I’ve been looking forward to finally starting with my studies and moving forward in my life.

This is a once in a lifetime experience and I’m glad to be doing it with Silulo Ulutho. One of the most exciting moments of my life was when I got to touch a mouse for the first time. It was so interesting to see the mouse move on the screen while I was moving it on the desk. Technology is advancing so quickly that it’s amazing what we can do with it.

Learning to use word was one of my favourite things as it was so cool to find a new way of writing and knowing that the writing gets saved on the computer without being written with a pen and paper. All the cool ways of styles and fonts and also being able to change the colour of the words was so interesting and new to me that was like experiencing a new world.

I’m keen to start learning about PowerPoint so that I’ll be able to start doing presentations for work which will help my further my career. It’s nice that I can work and study at the same time. The great thing about studying with Silulo Ulutho is that you can see the results of your studies and use the things you learn immediately.

Top 5 things you should do after graduating

You just spent six MONTHS  getting your certificate and now the reality of being a graduate is setting in. Not only do you have to find a job, promotion but you have to figure out how to manage your finances, develop professional connections, and so much more.

That’s why I’m listing my top five things to do after graduation so that you feel as prepared as you possibly can to take on all these new life obstacles.

1. Join a young professionals meet up or a social media group in your area 

Here, you’ll find like-minded individuals who are around the same age as you. It’s a great networking opportunity to see if anyone is hiring, get a feel for where the best jobs are, and to bounce ideas off of people who have walked the same path you’re on.

2. Give your CV  a solid makeover

Let’s be honest – the CV you created in high school could probably use some help. One of the biggest mistakes that recent grads make on CV’s is not tailoring it to the job they are applying for. Instead, they make one blanket resume, send it to employers, and expect to hear a response.

Although that might work for some jobs, the reality is that the market is changing and employers want to see specifically why you are a good fit for the job. Yes, tailoring your resume is going to take extra time, but it’s also going to give you a better chance of getting hired.

3. Weigh your options carefully

It’s normal for recent college grads to want to jump on the first offer they receive because it means money in the bank and not being unemployed.

But I want you to think for a second – Is this position really the one you want? Is it going to help you meet all of your necessities? Is it going to help you get new skills? All of these questions are important to ask yourself before you say “yes” to an employment offer.

4. Apply to all at least 5  jobs every week only if you  are unemlpoyed

If you didn’t have a job lined up when you graduated from college, then it’s time to start hitting the job search boards. Remember, you’ll want to send a tailored resume and cover letter to each job that you apply for. Since this takes extra time, I encourage you to aim at applying for at least one job each day of the work week.

5. Write down short and long term goals

Be clear with where you’d like to be in six months, one year, and five years. Do you want to have a job in six months or get a promotion in a year? Write that down.

So many people have their goals floating around in their heads but they fail to write them down. I don’t know about you, but I feel much more motivated to do something when I’m looking at it every day.

Don’t be afraid to hold yourself accountable. If the goals change, so be it! But don’t lose sight of what you’re working toward…

Bonus Points:

Ask a for promotion

Once you have a better understanding of your own motivation, you can find a tactful way to request your promotion.
