Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung (KAS) and SAIIA invite you to the annual careers event under the theme: ‘Careers in transition: a post-pandemic green economy and implications for the world of work’.

COVID-19 has dramatically exacerbated South Africa’s socio-economic malaise, with the unemployment rate rising to 32.5% in the last quarter of 2020. At the same time, the South African government is pursuing long-term strategies towards a green economic recovery based on cleaner and sustainable forms of energy. In light of this, the world of work is continuously evolving, making it imperative for graduates to diversify their skillsets and position themselves strategically in a competitive labour market.

Therefore, the aim of this year’s careers event will be to unpack the challenges and opportunities for students and young professionals presented by these transitions.

Guest speakers at the event will include: Cathy Mohlahlana, Broadcast Journalist and Anchor; Ronak Gopaldas Director at Signal Risk and Co-founder of Mindflux Training; and Farai Mubaiwa, Partner Implementation Lead and Co-founder of Africa Matters.
