Tips to Survive while Job Hunting
Create a Budget: This is an essential step for everyone, but it’s particularly important when you’re looking for a job. Your budget should account for all your monthly expenses, as well as any potential extra costs you might encounter during your job search, such as transportation costs for interviews or costs related to obtaining necessary certifications.
Emergency Fund: If possible, try to build up an emergency fund that can cover three to six months’ worth of living expenses. This can give you some financial cushion while you’re looking for a new job and can prevent you from having to take the first job offer you get if it’s not right for you.
Cut Non-Essential Expenses: While you’re job searching, it might be necessary to cut back on non-essential expenses. This could include eating out less, cancelling unnecessary subscriptions, or reducing your entertainment expenses.
Temporary Work: Consider taking on temporary or part-time work to supplement your income during your job search. This can help you maintain your finances and may also provide additional networking opportunities.
Education and Skills Training: Depending on your industry, it might be worthwhile to invest in additional education or skills training during your job search. This can make you more marketable to potential employers. Just be mindful of the costs and ensure it’s a worthwhile investment.
Plan for Retirement: Even when job searching, it’s important to keep your long-term financial goals in mind. Make sure you understand the retirement plan options for your prospective job, and consider how they fit into your overall retirement savings strategy.
Negotiate Salary: Don’t forget to negotiate your salary when you receive a job offer. Do some research to understand the average salary for the role you’re applying to in your location. Remember, every extra bit of salary can contribute to your financial well-being.
Insurance: Ensure you’re covered during your job search. This may involve extending your existing coverage or looking into temporary health insurance options.
Seek Financial Advice: If you’re feeling overwhelmed, consider seeking advice from a financial adviser. They can help you create a financial plan tailored to your specific situation and goals.
Stay Positive: Job searching can be a stressful time, but try to stay positive and focus on your end goal. Keeping a positive mindset can help you stay motivated during your job search.
Remember, everyone’s financial situation is unique, so it’s important to create a plan that works best for your specific circumstances.
Our Legacy: Who are we?
Boxer is one of the fastest-growing discount supermarkets in Southern Africa. With a cemented set of ‘people-centered’ goals and values, we have positioned ourselves as ‘Africa’s Favourite Discount Supermarket’ – a discounter that caters for the needs of the enlarged middle to lower-income consumer market. Since our beginnings, more than four decades ago in 1977, in KwaZulu-Natal’s Empangeni community, the Boxer brand has grown far and wide and includes well defined retail offerings that boast stores spread in every province of South Africa, as well as in the Kingdom of eSwatini (Swaziland).
Retail giant Pick n Pay acquired Boxer in 2002 in order for the Group to best serve the consumer market place that Boxer continues to dominate in. Boxer actively seeks opportunities with established brands to further entrench accessibility to its consumers.
With Boxer’s long serving and stable Directorate & Executive teams who are second to none in today’s ever evolving business landscape, the Boxer group has the effectiveness and efficiency of being able to operate independently from the greater Group.
Through Boxer’s noticeable growth over the decades it continues to provide an array of company formats across a defined set of models, ranging from a full service discount supermarket; to an ‘everything under one roof’ builders’ hardware offering; through to a liquor store format. Boxer is not a ‘cash & carry’ nor is it a ‘wholesaler.’
Boxer is a fully fledged retailer across all its formats, selling products and services at discounted prices.
The Company serves a diverse consumer base, from the daily household shopper who travels by car, through to customers who choose public transport to get to ‘Africa’s Favourite Discount Supermarket.’’ Over four decades of trading is testimony to the accelerated forward thinking and determined enthusiasm of the Boxer Company across all of its trading formats. Boxer’s progressive drive sees the business continuously evolving itself to ensure that all of its offerings not only match, but surpass the retail industry benchmarks.
