Learnership recruiters often ask applicants to explain why they want the opportunity in fifty words.

Be Meaningful and Relevant

Cover letters and application form responses must show exactly why the organisation should contract you.

Where possible, use phrases from the advert in your response.

If you’re applying for a learnership, combine advert phrases with terms from the SAQA Qualification in your cover letter.

Clearly communicate your points.

Explaining why

Like an athlete, use each job or learnership application to practice being better each time.

Introduction

The first two sentences must be interesting and catch the reader’s attention immediately. Try these:

  1. You can demonstrate vision:
    • I’ve always wanted to be a nurse, since the first time I saw my neighbor in her white uniform, I just knew! If I can do this qualification it will help me get a job at our local clinic.
  2. You can be transparent:
    • I want to do this qualification because I don’t know anything about business but I’ve watched business shows on tv and love the way people plan and interact. I like the way people seem focused on goals and being a team. I really want to learn.
  3. You can show passion:
    • I’ve been baking and taking care of people since I was first allowed to use a stove. I won a baking competition at school and baked biscuits to earn money, I even have my own unique recipes with secret ingredients! If you want people who can prove their love for this then I’m your girl!

Keep Climbing the NQF

Dear #sabpp
Making claims that members of the public are not free citizens but are barcode marked, #SABPP's number begins with 666! #payslips

Criminally infested SABPP, the devilish labour market #exploitation and #inequality driver.

Their ignorance <?>
or is the truth more base: Their GREED
and unfettered lawlessness fears no consequences.

Like the devil in hell, as human resources gatekeeper, SABPP ditches humanity with apartheid styled fiction credentials served by #humanrights deviants.
In Machiavellian style they brainwash members into believing the general public is nothing more than a meat market where blacks are paid less and women marginalised.

SABPP publicly indicts themselves, they've said - we use #payslips to #pricefix, so what?!

SABPP's membership subjugate dignity and rape our rights.
Not one #SABPP member had the conviction, mental capacity or virtue to face #PaySlipBanSA, refute these arguments - or heck, get down and sue.

The SABPP brand should not exist, it doesn't belong anywhere, ok... Hell would work!

Evil SABPP, no need for dullard lawyers to send the usual missive. We don't remove posts, all statements are true and ready for court.
Your 666 ideology does not belong in a #democracy.
