The poster summarised the qualifications he has to the prospective employer. Xulu was receiving his honours degree in developmental studies from the University of Zululand.
He says that he has a degree in environmental planning that he received when he was 20-years-old. Mondli xulu is from Doringkop, Kwadukuza in KwaZulu-Natal. He lives with his sisters and his other younger relatives.
Mondli Xulu says,“I’ve sent out about 200 job and internship applications since my first graduation in 2015 but I’ve only had on four-month internship with our local municipality.” He thought that the graduation ceremony would be the best place for him to ask for jobs from prospective employers. He told Daily Sun that he didn’t want to use a lot of money on his graduation attire that’s why he bought the attire he has.
He says the overalls cost him R350 to show his prospective employer that he wants a job. He then said that he got the boots he was wearing from a farmer he used to work for. The graduate said he was going to work for any amount of money. He said he was also willing to work for R1500.
