This entire hiring system also illustrates the design and motive of education system to "feed" the major compaies of the so called "educated" and willing all but inexperienced, untrained and often ignorant of social cultural needs and expectations but "useful" and "malleable" youths. That is something many countries of the world expect from their educational system to do for the so called "good" of their society and economy.
