Bank Better, Live Better

boost your career with an online university course

Want to take your career to the next level? Get R4 000 off online university short courses with GetSmarter and Capitec’s Live Better Benefits. We checked in with some of our clients who used this benefit to improve their careers.

Tshegofatso Mojela works in Johannesburg’s fast-paced hospitality industry. “Since I was a kid growing up in Soweto, I’ve always had big dreams. I dream of being a leader in my field, the best version of myself,” he says.

To achieve that, Tshegofatso wanted to advance his career. “Everyone is trying to hustle to better their career and business,” he says. But he realised that he needed more than just experience on the job; he also needed further education.  

During this time he received an email about Capitec’s Live Better Benefits and the R4 000 reduction on GetSmarter’s online course fees for clients. “I applied for a GetSmarter short course in Hotel and Restaurant Management. As it was online, I could study anywhere, anytime. This flexibility helped me to successfully manage my studies and career.” 

Tshegofatso’s passion for the hospitality industry encouraged him to get a qualification through GetSmarter related to his line of work. Today, as a manager at one of Braamfontein’s top restaurants, he reaps the rewards.

Stand out from the crowd

A GetSmarter online course also gave Tanya February, a digital marketing strategist, much needed knowledge and confidence to work with clients. “Being an entrepreneur is exciting, but it can be extremely demanding and stressful. You should be on top of the game at all times,” says Tanya, who manages her own business. “My clients expect that I’m up to date with the latest trends and digital marketing tools.”

To make a definite impact in the digital marketing environment, Tanya knew her clients needed excellent online content. She took advantage of the R4 000 off GetSmarter’s Digital Copywriting course and not only saved money but improved her skills. “When I’m in meetings, I can confidently offer advice because I have the knowledge to back my opinion.”

This is what Tanya has to say
