With your level of written English, I am not surprised that people around you think you have done so well, you must be sandwiched among mediocres. Having said that, where I stay and even my immediate family have rolled out so many professionals and professors that no one will bat an eye lid at the fact that you just managed a first degree. As I write, I have two masters degrees but the only thing that counts for me is the fact they seem to notice I am fairly successful as a lawyer and at my age. Bottom-line is, distinguish yourself and people will celebrate you, acquisition of first degree stopped being a big deal years back. Every family has at least one graduate, so what da phock are you yapping about. I am so incensed now. Mtchewwwwwww
Nice post. It's just that it see-sawed from humility to smugness and complacency.
That word ''mediocre'' is grammatically aberrant. I will tell you why it is so if you want to know.
It should be stated emphatically that 'no one is immune to solecism'.
Nice post though!

@OP being a graduate opens up doors of opportunity as opposed to if you were just a secondary school certificate holder.. Employers may be willing to employ you in diverse sectors, depending on the grade you achieved at the uni, ( in naija if you have connections)...

Whether you decide to pursue your field of study or embark on something else i.e. setting up a new business.. if this doesn't work out you always have your degree to fall back on.. These are just a few of the benefits of being a graduate...

I'm quite baffled as to why you even asked this rhetoric question in the first place? You're probably still an undergraduate in the first year looking for reasons as to why you should drop out of the uni, you better face your book and finish your degree...

It is special if it add value to your life, I bet your neighbours will place you where you belong if you can't address life challenges better, if you take to news stand criticizing government blindly and discussion football league every morning. Do something with your life even if there is no white collar job.
Keep adding value to your life, take professional courses, further your studies, improve your communication skill, develop interest in Nigerian economy, read books and catch fun. Wish all the best in life.

Pardon me. But where is the indefinite article that should have preceded shambles-- shambles being a singular noun?

being a graduate?
very good.
but being a graduate in our type of country?
my dear 2 things r involved;
u end up getting a job or remain jobless.
in getting a job, 2 things r involved;
u either get a peanut paying job or a well paying one tru strong connections or by paying ur way tru.
if u r jobless, so many things r involved:
u come home disappointed after a fruitless day of jobhunt, sit down hoplessly 4 no food, sigh, brood and....
GOD HELP NIGERIA.

This is just a clear manifestation of your low intellectual capacity. The guy made a mistake my kid brother in Jss1 would never make in his life. Mistaking their for there is an unpardonable error for an ssce holder. What more of a graduate. I dont blame you though. Birds of the same feathers support each other. You must be as dumb as he is to defend him.

YOU'RE RIGHT HERE MAKING CORRECTIONS AND YOU JUST ENDED UP MAKING AN UNIMAGINABLE CHEAP BLUNDER OF YOURS..."A UNIVERSITY GRADUATE HAS THE CHANCE THE SEEK A WHITE COLLAR JOB" ...I DON'T BLAME YOU SHA ! NIGERIANS AND THEIR OVERRATED EGO AND DELUSION OF GRANDEUR WHEN WE ARE NOTHING JUST LIKE ME.BUT , WHATEVER IT'S STILL A SENSELESS TOPIC TO BE ON THE FRONTPAGE
Okiki_Oluwa: Op, I advice you to moderate this thread and correct the (there & their) and change those abbrevated words.

A University graduate has the chance the seek a white collar job. That's if your GP is nice.
Re: Is There Anything Special About Being A Graduate? by Dranatomy: 1:38pm On Dec 27, 2012
Technically, First degree is the only license to bein addressed a graduate...Diploma and other certificates does not make u a graduate...Get ur first degree if u think its possible and go for post graduate if possible!

Nairalanders with their superciliousness and megalomania. Didn't you catch the guy's drift.
It's indubitable that the word graduate is used in the popular sense to mean 'one who has a varsity degree'
So why being pernickety overmuch.
*sneezes*

My dear!
The tin don tire me! And to think that so many so-called graduates make this mistake!
They mistake there for their,
Here for hear,
Where for were
These for this
Waist for waste
Write for right
Proof for prove. Etc. Reading and comprehending simple essays has become a big problem now.
The level of education just keeps diminishing everyday. I wonder if there's still hope for our future generation. So pathetic!
we know but Have u not ever made mistake before?
