Job help talks your language

2017-02-28 06:00

Searching for a job has become easier, as a multilingual booklet on job-hunting is rolled out at libraries and museums.

In celebration of International Mother Language Day on Tuesday, Anroux Marais, provincial minister of cultural affairs and sport, received the booklets published by the Stigting vir Bemagtiging deur Afrikaans (SBA).

The booklet is aimed at empowering those who are looking for employment and it is available in all three official languages.

Dr Niel le Roux, the foundation’s CEO and member of the Western Cape Language Committee, distributed the booklet in a committee meeting last year.

He requested the department help in distributing more copies of the booklets through libraries, archives and museums.

Together with Marlene le Roux, SBA chairperson, he officially handed over the booklets to Marais and her department as the custodians of multilingualism and knowledge centres in the province.

“Often, too many people underestimate the importance of affording space for self-improvement in one’s mother tongue and today we celebrate this significance by accepting these multilingual booklets. This handover shows in real terms that together we are committed to empowering all those who are looking for employment, as it is available in all three official languages,” says Marais.

“The department will make a concerted effort to assist in distributing more copies of the booklets through our information centres such as libraries, archives and museums for a wider spread.”
