There are many reasons why these graduates can't get a job. The 7 reasons why college grads can't get a job are:

1. Unrealistic expectations: Students getting degrees have the expectation that their degrees will help them get a job. From an employer's point of view, this is very true as they will be more qualified to do the job and there is less of a need to train them in-house. However, employers are the not ones actively seeking out new employees. Therefore, the students who are better prepared and have well defined job search goals throughout their time at college will have a greater chance of securing a job after they graduate, compared to those who hope that being a college graduate will get them through automatically.

2. Low academic scores: Being a college graduate also implies that employers expect these kinds of applicants to have done well at school. However, this is not always the case, as many would know. Many employers use a CUM score of 3.0 (equivalent to a B grade average) as a minimum requirement and some may even seek out those with higher scores.

3. Poor communication abilities: It is unusual for a college graduate to have poor communication skills, but nevertheless, some graduates still managed to graduate with a degree yet still have communication skills of a 5 year old.

4. Lack of work experience: Many employers are not willing to take a chance on a student who hasn't been able to show that they've had any experience working. Even working in a non-related field can still work in the student's favor.

5. Lack of achievements and results: There are still students who are not proactive enough in wanting to be able to achieve things, in and around college. This could mean getting work experience on campus, volunteering, doing extracurricular activities etc. These students are often those with average scores as well and tend to lose out to the more active college graduates.

6. Lack of referees: This point links back to the one about lack of work experience. But it could also mean that the student may have been poorly networked, which could result in less connections with others. This will bode negatively on being able to secure a job, as those who are able to get an endorsement from a well known and respected person will be significantly ahead of those who don't.

7. Lack of preparation: This point also goes back to the very 1st point about unrealistic expectations. Those college graduates who don't prepare for their future by getting good references, achieving highly overall while at college and developing excellent communication skills will find themselves frustrated by the fact they can't seem to get a job, although they are highly qualified.

Hivi hawa wafanyakazi woote waliajiriwa TZ hii wanatokea wapi sio vyuoni kweli tena vya nchini. Mi najua taasisi nyingi zimejichumia faida kubwa kwa kuwatumia wasomi hawahawa tunaowadharau. Mengine yanatajwa ili kuwafanya watu wasitake mishahara mikubwa. Mi nadhani vyuo vina takwaimu nzuri za wasomi wao wanaofanyakai kwenye taasisi mbalimbali zikiletwa tunaweza kua na mtazamo tofauti.

I am against you. Every one should work/hired according to his/her career of study. How would Water Eng graduate work as Civil Eng?

Unaweza kufanya kazi. Hata hizi voluntary work. Kwenye field kama law, there alot of firms especially dar zinazotaka interns.
Watu wanachofanya, ukiwa likizo ndefu, unatafuta sehemu ya kijuatttach for the three months leave.
I personally did that kwanzia nilivyomaliza mwaka wa kwanza hadi mwaka watatu. Na ilinisaidia kwa kweli. On the practical aspect of law and kucreate network.
Likizo zenu mzitumie vizuri.

embu... Nikusaidie kumjibu...
Soma neno kwa neno na uelewe ndugu.. Hajasema kubadilisha taaluma... Ila kufanya kazi yeyote iliyo halali kuliko kukaa bure home... Mfano mimi ni graduate.. Ila naweza kujitolea kusimamia usafi kkoo pale... Kwenda kuomba kazi ya kulea watoto day care... As in kuosha vyombo na kuwasave chakula... Those are basics zisizohitaji know how... Ila kila mtu akisikia kuwa ni kazi ya blue collar anakejeli kashifu na kuondoka... Nina mifano lukuki ya watu unawatafutia kazi.. Wakikubaliwa na kuitwa wanakataaa.. Yaani si wawili ama watatu.. Wengi... Na hata mpk najihisi kuwa nimekatishwa ari.. Kimtindo...
