Youth Employment

                                                                   

Research studies show that one of the main reasons why unemployment is soaring amongst the Youth is due to unpreparedness to be "Job Ready"!

There is a common “narrative” amongst young job seekers when they engage during a job interview that promotes "theories", opposed to exuding uniqueness!

At the virtual "MasterClass Job Ready Career Skills Academy"  we offers cutting-edge soft skills and career guidance to remedy the status quo and aim to:

i) Develop the candidate's psyche to allow them to be authentic, unique and relevant during a job interview and on the job.

ii) Develop an acceptable work ethic and a sound value system that they can apply on the job. 

Recruiters and Corporations (HR)

                                                                                     

Our world has changed due to COVID-19 and causing us to "re-imagine" how we need to do business moving forward! At "MasterClass Job Ready Career Skills Academy"  our recruitment specialists effectively short-list young talent.

Our candidates are well prepared for the "new normal" and available, able and willing to work either:

  • Remote Jobs - from their home representing a brand anywhere in the world.
  • Hybrid Jobs - willing to relocate to the country where they will perform hybrid jobs.
  • On-site - locally or internationally.

N.B.  All our candidates comply with the covid-related protocol of the relevant country. 

 

Our Vision & Mission Statements

              

Vision Statement

We aim to equip young job seekers with cutting-edge job ready skills, tools and resources to enable them to achieve sustainable careers and subsequently impact and grow their relevant economies.

Mission Statement

Our task now is not to "fix" the blame for the past, but to "fix" the course for the future. Our task is also not "class warfare", but it is "generational warfare".  The world system failed the youth - "that" is the real war going on here.  "That" is the war we need to talk about in order to rescue our future generation.

Rosemarie's Bio

Rosemarie's life journey is a testimony of wisdom vs intellect.  She is a "victor" of the apartheid era of South Africa that sadly left many of her peers (and others) with deep scars due to extreme marginalisation by a past regime. But you ask, why did it not affect Rosemarie? Because the kingdom of God resides in all humans and He is not a respecter of people.  Once this truth is understood, outside negative factors cannot penetrate the human heart. On the contrary, we are imperfect, and "some" negative and unfair occurances are able to throw us off balance, but once again, the comfort that God is ultimately our source allows us to always bounce back! As a matter of fact, the word of God says, quote: "For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this workd, against spiritual wickedness in high places". Ephesians 6:12 (KJV).

Rosemarie was fortunate to sharpen her skills during her tenure at many amazing banks. 

1988 -1994

ABSA (Associated Banks of South Africa) 

- HR Practitioner -  Rosemarie acquired her HR Diploma (PGDPM) from the "Institute for Personnel Management" - Parktown, Johannesburg (SA). 

- Marketer - ABSA Property Division - she moved to this division as one of the pioneers to expedite the "Multi-Listing" software system that was marketed to the Real Estate Fraternity in SA. 

1995 - 2003

Nedbank

- Sales & Marketing Consultant, Property Division - as a top performer on a consistent basis, when Rosemarie achieved 1st place nationally for writing the highest value of home loan business during 1999, she moved from Nedbank's Property Division to consult to Corporate SA on behalf of Nedbank's Group Schemes Division

- Master Trainer, HIV Aids Nedbank Projects - nominated as one of the pioneers to start the Nedbank HIV Aids project.   

- Part-time studies - during 2002, Rosemarie did night studies at the Rhema Bible College to obtain a Diploma in "Community Leadership" that included Christian Business Principles. This knowledge and qualification still stands her in good stead to deliver her social contribution to society, and to uphold ethical business principles. 

- During 2003, Rosemarie left Nedbank to start her own business, and delved into what she knew best.

-  Freelance journalism - Beeld Newspapers

-  Continuity Presenter in training - presented six slots of the opening program on TV1's "From the Book" (a bible reading presentation).

2012

Wrote and self-published her book called “The Rugby Fan”.

- The book is based on a true story of an All Black Rugby Player (the stalwart Stephan Donald),  who was under duress by fans for losing two critical games for the All Blacks - something that does not bode well with the All Black fairytale rugby!

-The book advocates rational, fair and decent sports blogging where Rosemarie was one of only two females amongst an army of International males and ruthless bloggers! 

- Blogging on abs.com, while at work during 2010 - 2013 was a roller coaster experience!  Here Rosemarie set the record straight and distinguished loyal fans from haters.  She took the opportunity to encourage players to express their faith, use rhythm more (maybe go Nia Dancing - a Chinese dancing technique to boost rhythm , a chapter in the book).  She also encouraged athletes to consider relocating to other rugby nations to obtain financial sustainability, as rugby does not provide any guarantee, neither does it sustain families of rugby players after they hung up their boots!

- Real time blogging content is documented in the book that includes much humor, tears, and passion during blogging.  The book goes on to advocate unbiased relationships between athletes and fans, and also shares the history of rugby (educational). 

- New Zealand government made a documentary of the fairytale story of Stephan Donald, called "The Kick".  This documentary depicts many emotions of the player himself, the nation and the fans.  SD was a villain for most of his early rugby career despite his brilliant talent and prowess; when backed by Rosemarie for three years during the blogging fiesta - she made a statement on the blog and said, quote "Stephen Donald will be the last man standing come 2011 Rugby World Cup".  This prophetic statement turned into reality and vindicated both SD and Rosemarie!  The book tells more!

The book was:

- launched at Twickenham, London during a Rugby show - 2014

- awarded author of the month at OR Thambo International's marketing fair, in association with Exclusive books and Kwenda Marketing (2015) - 

- Is available on Amazon International and a few online stores
