THE FREELANCE GRADUATION.

The world is on a rapid technological development there have been cases of layouts where companies suck their employees and bring machines to do their work claiming that’s its cheaper and they can do twice the work that humans do in a day.
There has also been a real struggle to find jobs especially in the third world countries where you find a whole engineering graduate in the streets pulling up carts and when you ask why the answer you get is lack of unemployment and people have bills to pay and school loans to complete.
But lately there has been a new ‘discovery’ if I may call it so where people are more drawn to work online. This has come as a plan B to most people because at the present time people are more constrained to work online other than spend most of their time taking their CVs from one company to another getting the same answer.
Here at Ruben Centre we are not left behind. Having to work online needs some understanding and a few ideas. So last year the development officer Bev Watkinson started a freelance program, this is a short course for only three months which has been well accepted in the community.
This year the program had sixteen students graduate. The faculty has gone ahead and made a work space available for those graduates who get work but can’t manage to get a work place by themselves. They also provide loans (interest free loans) to the best performed graduates in terms of a computer where they purchase one for them give it to them but they can only take it with them when they are done paying for them
This product loans were issued to nine graduates who are operating them in the work space provided but they have to provide a commitment fee of five thousand and also sing up a contract for the product loan.
