Having read the article posted by Validplanet on 28th of this month on nairaland I
still find it very difficult to comprehend why our graduates still don't get befitting
jobs. I copied out some of the interesting and educating comments for your digest.
I advise you read this and put up your comment on our wall to educate somebody
Ngwakwe: Most of those people you called non-graduates and illiterate are
graduate-artisans with multi skills capabilities having learnt and worked with so
many experts and trainers in one field of endeavour or the other. Moreover, almost
all of them did complete their JS3 School programmes and cannot be categorically
called illiterate. I will advise most classroom-graduates to join them in the
meantime and until your luck shines (you get your dream job).
Wizee: Relax, u angry bcoz u've not goting a job yet. You have to b positive abt life,
going to school doesn't guarantee u job bt is an added advantage. Hope u have seen
2/3 storey built by dis so called illiterates colaps! Why? Bcoz they can't diff btw a
quality and quantity. Thats where d civil engineers cum in. Why can't this illiterates
build skyscraper? So Relax
Afam4eva: You don't get jobs because you're literate but because you're educated.
These people you're referring to as illiterates(whatever that means) educated
themselves in a particular field and are the best for the job. The fact that you're a
university graduate(not necessarily educated) does not mean you're better than
those people. It really sucks to be a Nigerian graduate cos all they teach you is to
graduate and go get a job. Your job is to find solutions to real life problems.
