The Chair SABC1

Unemployed South Africans have a chance at finding employment through a new reality show titled “The Chair”.

The Chair

Creating hope for unemployment

SABC 1 will on January 5 premiere ‘The Chair’ a reality television show that connects job seekers with their prospective employers and gives them tips on nailing job interviews.

‘The Chair’, a first of its kind in South Africa’s reality television was produced by Mountain Top Productions.

An HR specialist, Madelein Hendricks will be The Chair’s judge and resident HR specialist helping candidates as well as viewers master job interview requirements.

My view is that – “Job seekers genuinely do not know where to apply for work, how to structure their CVs for the best results and even what it takes to nail an interview.

I instantly see a link to how companies and people can benefit one another. We should be focused on the long-term, staying with a company for a longer period for the benefit of our own personal career growth and that of the company, rather than taking the first opportunity that comes along because we are desperate. This mindset is not productive for employees or employers as many resources are wasted when recruiting and replacing people.”
