    Dear puff and pass

    Thank you for being a helping hand to the youth of SA. I’ve used this website for yes with no luck until 2016 where I had multiple opportunities. All my internships were applied through this platform. I took a learnership with standard Bank even though I had other qualifications and got permanently employed before I finished.

    I would advise those who uses the platform not to give up because there will be that one door opened for you.

    I would also like the team to ask for more donations to create a free app where all the youth can have access without data. It is really a challenge when you can’t even afford data.

    Thank you guys keep up the good work.

    Thank you Puff and Pass for your posts and updates! Because of this site, I was able to apply for a Phlebotomy Learnership in 2015 and have been permanently employed since then after successfully completing the learnership.

    Dear Puff and Pass team,
    It’s the first time I see this tab of ‘success stories’ on your site and I just thought I won’t let this one pass without commending the great work this site provide to the most youth of SA , especially the graduates.
    After three full years from graduation, I was trying and trying to apply for job placements and not a single application was shortlisted or landed me anything. Then this one day I met someone and they introduced me to puff and pass (The Life Changer) and my hope was restored.
    To cut the story short after some several attempt, I saw an internship advert from your site for a company I never knew existed and this happened to be the first time my application was shortlisted, called for interview and got placement. Two years later after serving my internship I am now employed permanently and to this day I been very grateful to have visited this site at the first place.
    Please keep up the good work and continue being a pillar of hope for many unemployed youths in South Africa
    Best regards.

    Hi My name is Moratehi, I got my degree in 2015 in industrial psychology and labour relations. I struggled for two years to get an internship, that’s when I was introduced to puff and pass search engine. I was told by friends that puff and pass has helped a lot of graduates to find internships. In 2017 I Applied for a graduate programme at Rand Water and subsequently I was hired as a HR graduate. I encourage all graduates to apply at puff and pass and be patient.
