The e-book was initially written by Christelle du Toit and Damaria Senne to support job-hunting workshops for rural youth in Phokeng, in the North West province of South Africa, who either have no work experience or very little, and do not have the knowledge or skills to market themselves properly.
It evolved into a detailed guide for youth in similar positions and offers simple, easy-to-understand, practical guidelines based on international best practices.
The e-book contains sections such as: how to look for work electronically and in traditional ways; finding jobs that suit the individual; how to prepare winning CVs and cover letters; how to prepare for an interview; and what to do post-interview.
It is highly practical and looks at issues such as how social media has changed the job landscape, as well as the role communities can play in helping people look for work. Tools and examples contained in the book include CV and cover letter examples (both good and bad), and tips on how to answer frequently asked questions in interviews.
