I would like to draw people's attention to the inherent flaws in the Fas Work Placement Programme (WPP), which the Government has not been backwards in praising.
I am a recent graduate who cannot find work in Ireland and thought I would avail of this apparently worthwhile opportunity to gain valuable work experience while looking for a job here in Ireland.
I believe that at a time of financial crisis it is important that the educated should stay in Ireland and work in the hope that it will lead to forms of innovation which will help us see us through the recession.
