How Silulo saved me

My name is Sinethemba Ntuli, grew up in the Eastern Cape (Port Elizabeth, Motherwell) like an any one else who is in Cape Town trying to make something out of nothing. A son to a staunch, remarkable and single woman who mothered three children. Growing up from a broken family and being raised on a loose change from my mother’s employer, where she helped to do laundry, cook, clean the house and at times if she is fortunate manage to leave her employers house with a loaf of bread without her consent as we struggled to make ends meet and further our education.

After doing my matric last year in tough living conditions, I had to convince my self that there is something out there waiting for me and if I want to get it I had leave the land of my birth to seek it somewhere else where conditions were favorable. It was only after July this that I got a call to come to Cape Town  and stay with my dad in Lower Crossroad “Marikana”.

On my arrival that in week alone  I saw people getting mugged, shot at and everyday news of a house burglary would travel faster than I can say PE.  My father whom I was  staying with had warned me about Marikana, insisted that I needed to keep busy or  get a job and give him my CV. But, because he has been so absent in my life little did he know that I could not even type.

Five reasons why you need to be computer literate

Literacy has always been important for success in school, work, and life in general, and unless our society undergoes a drastic change it will always be important. However, literacy in the 21st century isn’t just about being able to read and write fluently. As essential as that is, many have argued that computer literacy is just as important in our modern world.

A few decades ago, computer use was mostly relegated to a handful of professions. Not many people owned their own computers, and most computers were used as a tool on the job. These days, there is at least one computer in every household, and most people have active accounts on Facebook or Twitter or at least an email address. Computers are ubiquitous in our society, so it stands to reason that more importance has been placed on computer literacy.

There are many clear advantages to being computer literate in the 21st century. Here are just five of them

1.More job opportunities: For many people, it’s easier to find an office job that involves the use of a computer. Naturally, being able to use a computer will put you at a distinct advantage when you apply for these kinds of positions. Not only can computer literacy make you more desirable to employers for office jobs, it may allow you to find ways to work from home if you have a reliable Internet connection.

Which one is greater?- The benefits or damages the internet has done to our society

It is an early morning in Cape Town, the traffic jam along Landsdwone road one of Khayelitsha’s main feeder roads, stretches for kilometres as (taxis), buses and cars try to make their way into the central district where they can gainaccess to shopping centers, hospitals, municipal and government premises. I am sitting at the back of a taxi from Gugulethu to Khayelitsha and we just drove into Site C when an elderly woman signals the taxi to stop, as she was going to Khayelitsha Mall. Minutes after she got in the taxi her cellphone started ringing with the most annoying ringtone, she answers “hello nguMmacirha lo uthethayo” in venac. On the other side it is a local’s school’s principal calling her to a meeting at school urgently as her daughter was caught yesterday watching a disturbing adult video in class whilst they were attending an English revision class for the final matric exams.

Don’t ask me how I knew this because I was eavesdropping due to that terrible ring tone. Once she had welcomed the invitation, she started talking to the teenager who happened to be sitting next to her about the dangers that came with the technology and the internet, that in their time they did not have the luxury to access the internet and as a result they were not ill disciplined. This brings me to the topic of what are the benefits and disadvantages of technology and internet connectivity in our “society” Read more

From being a security guard to working as a clerk – Nkazimlo Magwaza

Dear Future Silulo Student

Firstly, I am a Unitra social science graduate and you must be wondering why did I enrol with Silulo Ulutho Technologies to study the End User Computer Course. The fact of the matter is not all graduates know how to use a computer. In varsity during my period we never had a computer course as a module in my degree, so I struggled to type assignments and to do research nevertheless I graduated. After graduation I did what was expected of me, moved to Cape Town to search for a job as a social worker, my family was happy to see me live as they knew that ubhuti uyosebenza.

To my surprise, I got in Cape Town and spent most of my days at a Silulo internet café in Phillipi, typing my cv, looking for jobs online and ignoring most phone calls from my sisters who were asking for money thinking ndiyaphange kuba ndise Kapa. Apparently, I was aiming too high in my job applications as they proved to be fruitless then I decided to apply for a security officer job and luckily I got the post. Tjoo being a security officer is hard, try to think of sleeping with your boots on and sleeping with your boots on literally. My job was to patrol around the beach at night, sometimes I would ask myself who would steal sea water and the beautiful scenery. The answer to that question made me quit my job as it was not fulfilling and I was a earning a penny. Read more

20 Steps to finding a new job

 Getting a  Job or Changing  a career is never easy, but it helps if you know where to start, who to target and how to succeed getting it.  We asked around for  expert advice on this issue and compiled the 20 Steps of How To Find a New Job or A  Job. Below is a list of things you need to do step by step.

Make the first move. 1 Identify a new direction. “Create a list of career options you think you’d really enjoy, not just the ones you think you can do. Don’t limit your thinking at this stage. If you really want to start your own business, put that on you list. Then research how others changed into these careers.

2 Think about things you’re good at. “Jobseekers who ask, ‘What can I do with my qualifications/experience?’ have it backwards,” says Tanya de Grunwald, founder of “A good job search should start with you, not your CV. Are you an ideas person? Do you have the gift of the gab? Are you good at explaining things to others? Most of us don’t think of ourselves as ‘talented’ – but look closer and you’ll find something to guide you towards the sort of jobs you’ll most enjoy.”

3 … then think about the skills you have picked up Read more

What do cashiers do and what qualifications do they have?

Cashiers work in a variety of places including supermarkets, retail stores, gas stations, movie theaters and restaurants. As a cashier you’ll probably use a cash register to ring people up, take their money and give them their change and a receipt. You might also have to wrap or bag their purchase. Cashiers sometimes handle returns and exchanges.

At the end of a shift, you’ll have to count the money in your cash register and compare it with the sales data in the computer. Be careful with your money – although you probably won’t get in trouble for occasionally being a few cents short, you could get fired if it happens too often.

Depending on where you work, you might have other responsibilities as well. If you’re a cashier at a supermarket, you might be asked to clean your area as well as return unwanted items to shelves. If you work at a convenience store, you might have to create money orders and sell lottery tickets.

Almost half of all cashiers work part time. Most cashiers are asked to work weekends, evenings and holidays.
