Learners from Hoërskool Oosterland were hosted by Secunda Toyota this week for the MISA Career expo.

More than eight hundred learners, nationwide, participated in the Career Expo of MISA, the Motor Industry Staff Association, aimed at raising awareness about what the motor retail industry entails as possible career opportunities.

Martlé Keyter, MISA’s Chief Executive Officer: Operations, says the Union believes that learners must have knowledge and understanding of the variety of careers and growth opportunities in a vital industry, employing more than 300 000 workers, over seven sectors.

“I believe that Youth Development must be one of the core issues tackled by unions and we must make it a priority if we want a better future for our youth and young workers. This is the eleventh year MISA’s Women’s Forum and Young Workers’ Forum hosted the Career Expo in partnership with dealerships nationwide.

“I am overwhelmed by the success and grateful for the keen interest shown by the Grade 11 learners at this very important stage of their lives, having to consider possible careers.  Notwithstanding all the troubles and tribulations, the motor industry is still the best sector to work in,” says Keyter.

Michelle Vorster, Chairperson of the Young Workers’ Forum, told learners at the Hoërskool Hans Moore in Benoni how she started working in the industry as a service advisor. Today she is a portfolio manager without a post-graduate degree.

“I want to motivate and encourage those learners who cannot or do not want to go to university by telling them about my journey. I love my job,” says Vorster.

Amandla Kuse, MISA’s Training Officer, explained to learners how they should draw up a curriculum vitae, so they know what to include and what not.

Keyter would like to thank all the dealerships who participated in the Expo.

MISA continues to grow in whatever the Union is doing. The aim is to reach more than a thousand learners in 2023,” says Keyter.
