In a few months it would be “goodbye college time” for a lot of students in the country and time to say “hello jobs”. And with labor statistics indicating the almost half a million graduates are unable to land a job every year, we can’t help but wonder about their future.
Of course there will always be job fairs held at malls or online job search engine where you can find almost every job in every field like nursing, legacy system programmer jobs, call center representative jobs and others. But despite numerous vacancies, it would appear that graduates cannot readily fill these positions because some are underqualified or does not pass certification exams. Is this a result of the poorness of our education system being not at par with industry standards or is it merely a problem with the types of graduates our schools produce versus the needs of the labor market?
