A homeless 22-year-old seeking a job has just received over 1000 replies and job offers on Facebook and a variety of other social media platforms.
Joseph Phukube was first noticed by Sandton resident Pam Green, who posted his matric certificate and curriculum vitae on Facebook according to the Sandton Chronicle.
Green asked 20 of her friends to share the post and help him find employment – since 29 June his story has been shared over 22 500 times on Facebook.
Not only that, he had received over 1,000 responses and job offers ranging from call centre agent positions, to scholarship offers.
“I love new challenges, especially ones that will help me experience new things in life. I also like the chance to change businesses and come up with new ideas,” Phukube said.
He is currently searching for a place to live, and preparing for meetings with various possible employers.
