Whats Wrong With Graduates In This Country?

I have been really upset recently about some graduates in this country especially about those who are yet to get a job.Another reason for high unemployment rate in Nigeria could also be as a result of what should i want to refer to as the dumbness of some graduate. A friend recently posted an online advert for recruitments of a certain positions with specific instructions to indicating their prefered location amongst the various locations listed in the ad. Could you believe that 70% of those that applied did not adhere to this very simple instruction. Out of his magnamity he posted a rejoinder in which he pointed out that indicating the prefered location is a major prequisite for shortlisting. After this rejoinder can you imagine that 45% of those that responded again did not indicate their prefered location, this is inspite of this second reminder. When he was narating this to me, i just kept on wondering, the type of graduate our schools are churning out when they cant read and understand an instruction of not more than 12 lines. How were they able to graduate in the first instance,Can someone help me out on this?

Some graduates are worse than touts. Some cant even prepare a descent CV.

nothing is wrong with them. they read the instructions but they are in need of a job so location doesn't mata to them. imagine a scenario where a vacancy says candidate must reside in kaduna, i stay in lagos, do u tink if am applying for the job i'll indicate that i stay in lagos? no i wont.
