Fresh graduates concerned about jobs
SHIBERGHAN (Pajhwok): Around 118 graduates from the geology and mine faculty of Jawzjan University are worried about their future, an official said on Wednesday.
Eng. Mohammad Hashim, chancellor of Jawzjan University, said it was the 12th batch of gradates. About 118 students including 40 females graduated from geology and mines faculty today.
The graduates were of the view that getting jobs in the prevailing circumstances was difficult, because government and private sectors did not have enough for them, they added.
Mohammad Nabi, one of the fresh graduates, told Pajhwok Afghan News the uncertain situations had made youth to go abroad for work. He said it was the responsibility of the government to give them jobs.
He deplored that many educated men and women in Jawzjan had been unemployed. The growing unemployment would be detrimental to youth, he warned.
Deputy Governor Eng. Abdurrahman Mahmoodi agreed the public sector did not have enough vacancies. Some private sector projects, which were about to be launched, would create job opportunities for youth, he concluded.
