Terzungwe blamed his institution of graduation for leaving him to suffer unemployment despite his first class degree.

Mr. Terzungwe who is married, and Benue indigene has called out the management of the Benue State University for failing to employ good hands after students graduate from the University.

He decried the inability of sound and intellectuals to secure jobs at the state varsity. Meanwhile, people of lower pedigree are gainfully employed. Below is what he posted on social media that got many people talking;

“This is another first class material that BSU has junked to waste. What is this world coming to?
“A society that celebrates mediocrity but deprecates merit will not prosper. This is the tragedy of Nigeria!”

One commentator, who seems to be Terzungwe’s friend, dropped a comment that made a lot of sense.

“My contribution here won’t be pleasant, but it’s a sad reality. No one owes anyone a job for finishing with a first class. The normal job market is a competitive one and is opened to those who search them out and compete fairly. Banks and many other corporate bodies recruit graduate trainees every year. Those adverts are always out there.

“So the questions we should be asking is, many of this opportunities for employment have they taken? What have been the challenges? How can those who are in the system help these bright minds.

” Blaming BSU for the misfortunes of its graduates is unfair. Because the school is not responsible for recruitments.

“First class graduates of more reputable institutions are out there without jobs or grossly underemployed.”

    It is quite petiable that one with such qualification cries out his inability to secure a job. However, like many universities, their good products are always retained (Graduate Assistant)and sometimes with funds from ETFs, they are sponsored for further studies with the view of having them come back and deploy thier services to the institution at least for a period of time. There again, am sure if you have adequate practical skills, no body would like to discard such opportunity, especially for those who appreciate expertise. My submission is for you to pray, work harder, there’s something you nearby. Begin from there, little beginning…… But then, what do I know self.

    The question is: what employable skills does he have. Because, papers and some theoritical knowledge isn’t enough to get you a position with post companies.
    For instance, recentlymy compan neededa UI/UX designer, and we posted the opportunity on indeed.
    We recieved a lot of applications, some wih master, some with over 20 years experience in the IT indutry. We just needed needed someone to convince us he has the practical design skills we’re looking for. Some applicants were posting all sorts of certificates and professional qualifications, but failed to demonstrate any tangible practical UI/UX design skills.
    At the end, we didn’t even look at any of those papers., we ended up hiring someone without a degree but with incredible design skills.
    Your papers are for your pocket.
    Your skills is what will make me money.

      Does that now means that we shouldn’t go to school again that all we need now is to learn hand work?
