Hey Percy

I was in a very similar position to you, maybe we were even in the same
class. What you can do while job hunting is volunteer at places you may
think you would like to work at? I know ezemvelo have opportunities that
open and close in January .
However in the meanwhile you can improve yourself away from studies and
work through some free courses, Try Open2Study.com and
https://www.coursera.org/  as they have many free courses that can give you
certificates that you can put in your CV. Also since youre keen on GIS I
suggest learning GQIS from the bottom up , I intend to get back into the
manual .

It was developed in some aspects by our very own Mr Sutton :D . What will
be a mega advantage is if you learn some python , I intend to take it up
when possible, and QGIS has an environment to learn that also. If you've
got access to internet try this http://www.learnpython.org/

Best of Luck dude, but honestly I suggest applying for NRF and doing your
honours at the least.
