    Says something about the quality of these applicants if they can't figure out on their own that job hunting is something they should take the initiative on without prodding or ecplicit instruction. Were they waiting for an engraved invitation to pursue their future?

    Those poor souls. Nobody told them what to do. Must have been terrifying.

    That's 2 years away. Shouldn't they be concentrating on their studies, instead?

    So students not bothering to find things out on their own? Sounds about right.
