MORE than 50 prospective graduates from the University of Papua New Guinea (UPNG) are on the job market for potential employers to tap into their acquired skills.
The graduates from Enga province want potential employers to consider them in their respective disciplines after they graduate tomorrow.
UPNG Enga Student Association president Micah Kameso said it was very crucial for PNG given the unprecedented economic growth that the human resources component was key to the industrial and general economic growth of the country.
“In light the of booming economic growth, this country needs humans resources, especially fresh university graduates to drive private and public sector growth,” he said.
 Mr Kameso told The National last Friday that UPNGESA would be hosting a parade called UPNG Miok Graduands Parade on Tuesday.
The president said the parade was to market  the students before prospective employers, who were expected to attend.
 “We want to tell potential employers that we are ready to join the workforce and contribute to the economic development of the nation,” Mr Kameso said.
