Unlock Opportunities

The Yenza Program really helped to assess my prospective careers. It helped me gain more insight on possible alternatives should the first choices not work out. I would recommend this to anyone who is not sure or wants clarity.

I think that Yenza is a very innovative tool and I enjoyed learning more about myself.
I have completed similar programs, but none gave me the specific careers suited for me, or my personality traits like Yenza does.

Frequently Asked Questions

What makes Yenza different to other solutions?

Yenza is the first career platform that personalises career guidance and development based on biographic, psychographic and behavioural data. Other solutions offer generic "one size fits all" information, which is overwhelming and doesn't do a good job at guiding an individual. We offer highly curated, personal recommendations based on deep understanding of who you are and at the same time we help you develop yourself. Lastly, because of our deep understanding of who you are, we are better able to find you opportunities.

What do you get with the Yenza subscription?

It depends on which Yenza subscription you have. We will be launching our subscription services by 1 October 2020.

How expensive is Yenza?

Yenza is the cheapest solution you will find that offers accredited assessments as well as professional career guidance and skill development. Other solutions cost in the thousands of rand.

Why is Yenza so cheap then?

Our main mission is to provide access to all and one of the biggest barriers to access is available finance. We also maintain the highest standards of quality. So that is why we are making a world class solution affordable for all.

Are the Yenza assessments hard to take?

No, they take on average between 5-7 minutes to complete, and they are easy to use on all smartphone devices. There are no right or wrong answers and reports are easy to understand.

Will Yenza cost me a lot of money with data costs?

No. Yenza is data-lite. Taking one of our assessments only uses 3MB. We are also currently working towards providing Yenza data free.

Is the assessment a once-off experience?

We recommend to take assessments every two years.

What does Yenza mean?

Yenza means "Do" in Xhosa & Zulu - Our philosophy is all about taking action, Being proactive, taking responsibility for your life and committing to your future.

What do you mean by multi-lingual?

Yenza assessments and reports will be offered in four languages to begin with: English, Afrikaans, isiXhosa and isiZulu.

Are there other similar assessments like this?

No. There are no currently validated or accredited online assessments which use behavioural imagery to administer assessments. We are also the first to combine assessment data to develop our own Smart Career Algorithm, which combines over 250 data points to make personalised career recommendations to individuals.

How / what do you mean by scientifically validated?

Our assessments adhere to gold standard psychometric and developmental frameworks. We have developed and continue to refine and validate our assessments under the supervision of world renowned psychometrists, both locally and abroad.

You mentioned something about an algorithm, what is that?

As the individual works through various assessments and gives feedback through the platform, the Yenza Smart Career Algorithm analyses this information to make highly accurate career and skill development recommendations. The more you engage, the better we are able to personalise your career pathway. We are also conducting on-the-ground research to understand sector and industry skills and people requirements, which feeds into our algorithm to make sure we are guiding the right people along the right path.

What makes the Yenza Profile so special?

The Yenza profile is a living profile that evolves with you as you progress in your career. It is your tool to open doors you could have never opened before. It is the only profile which offers objective, credible insight into who you are, which is essential information for employers or recruiters. This profile is also used as a reflective tool, which gives you insights and guidance on what to do next on your career path. Finally your profile converts into the most attractive C.V you will find, which will put you in the front of any queue.

Can I share my CV?

Yes you can share your CV by clicking the "Share My CV" button. You will then be able to download your C.V to print or share online.

What kind of insights do I get from the Career recommendations?

We pay very close attention to the realities of each career. We also do our best to make sure you understand what is required from you so you can make the right career choices. We've developed a Smart Career Display which gives you a lot of career information in a quick and easy format to understand. We also only list the most important skills you need to have and what "X-Factor" qualities or attributes you need to really succeed within each profession.

How will Yenza help me get into University or find a job?

We will be partnering with various tertiary institutions, recruiters and organisations to match the right person with the right opportunity. We analyse your information, and then recommend to you the best suited jobs which you will have the greatest chance of success at.

What are the kinds of skill development content that will be available with the Yenza subscription?

We will be offering various online courses, which are credible in the job market. These courses will range from digital skills like typing, using interfaces and spreadsheets to soft skills like focus, time management, organisation and planning.

When will skill courses be available?

We will be launching our first set of courses in November 2020.
