TODAY we have many young graduates coming out of universities and colleges in Papua New Guinea who are unable to find work.
In order for them to find a job, they may need to bribe someone, and doing that leads to another problem – that of dishonesty.
Bribery opens doors in this country.
Even if you manage to find a job without bribing someone, you will still be left behind because bribery allows people to enter without knocking.
Giving someone a job because you have been bribed is like stealing from the organisation itself.
We need honest professionals
with good character to stand up and accept the graduates based on their qualification and ability.
