What do you think of this university?

We met up with my sister and her friends a week back. She has graduated from her uni with a degree in IT a year back and she is now living in a shared apartment with a number of her former university IT school mates. About 10 of them. She is now fresh in the job market working as an IT consultant for a consulting company. However, when we enquired her house mates further, we found most of them are also working as IT consultants in other companies. Some even got jobs of lower status such as call center operators or computer operators. None of them, including my sister, got jobs pertaining to a university IT graduate, jobs like an IT manager, a network designer, a database administrator or a university lecturer. In fact, one of them was even dismissed from her job as a database manager only 6 months into her job. She is now in a completely different field - retail assistant. Is this a sign the university degree they had got is not really that good? Can I have a reply please, sincerely.

There are two directions to go in university...the science/health related degree, or humanities. Now in the majority of cases the only job promise and security... More
