Getting a job after graduation is a dream for many students in the higher institution today. Some students do whatever it takes to gain admission into reputable colleges or universities, and pay so much money for tuition just to receive the best of education, and reputation that puts them ahead of others in the labor market.

The graduates from these institutions get more employment opportunities because of the training they have received. They have very large Alumni around the world helping fresh graduates get employed.
Some of the institutions provide networking sessions and career fairs to help their students in the job market. Some have partnership agreements with many employers around the world.
But sometimes it is not just about the institution you attended, it is mostly about you and what the employer expects from you in relation with the career field. Attending a top school means you have something better to offer compared to graduates from other schools or institutes.
