There is not enough jobs for people educated in the same fields as one another.
Isn't this the same all over Europe?
Employment is bought with bribes.
Happens everywhere. Look at France - where jobs and housing are very often given on the basis of personal contact and indirect bribery. Or the UK, where what public school you went to (the old boys network) is often far more important than your qualifications.
When there is a closed-shop. ( employment given to family/friends, regardless of qualifications ).
What's wrong with that? Better the devil you know, and all that. Look at ESL teaching - isn't it better to hire a teacher that you know and can rely on than an unknown? Personal contacts are *everything* in employment.
The qualifications are not recognized abroad.
By who? The Bologna Process has done a lot to ensure mutual recognition - certainly, professional associations in the UK accept Polish qualifications!
Let's not forget that Poland demands qualifications for certain jobs in which unqualified people can do in the UK.
The only thing to bear in mind with Polish qualifications is that cheating is rife. And this is certainly to the shame of Poland - why on earth it hasn't been stamped out is entirely beyond me.
