Graduates ‘lack job skills’

The Manging Director, RUBIX Management, Ope Onaboye, says tertiary institutions aren’t preparing their graduates for jobs.

He noted that finding qualified applicants was difficult, as applicants were performing below employers’expectations.

Speaking with The Nation, Onaboye said many fresh graduates were not ready for their first jobs, faulting their writing proficiency, and public speaking ability.

He expressed concern over the low employability of graduates, adding that with the challenging employment environment; only a fraction of fresh graduates was employable. Onaboye blamed the situation on lack of awareness of their low employability quotient.

    Old cliche, this. The graduates who can read and write well, how many of them have jobs? We talk as if merit really matters in this our system. The generation that destroyed our educational system are the same people who are eager to blame the products of their failed system. They call us half-baked graduates as if say na we bake ourselves. Mtchew!!
