Much has been talked about the academic institutions producing students
who are ill-equipped to face the “real” world, the world of work and business.
As such, most of the leaving or graduating students go through a very painful period
of adjusting to their new roles as responsible working adults. Learning through trial and error, some succeed
while others fail to realize their full potential and capabilities.
The problem is compounded by the rapidly changing work environment
posing an even greater challenge for the leaving or graduating students.
