    bridge the gap between their graduation and fidning a job

    It gives them (students) a decent opportunity to bridge the gap between their graduation and finding a job.

    Personally, I do not like the bold part of my sentence. I want to say that everything what I mentioned in my essay gives student a decent opportunity to bridge the gap between their graduation and the moment when they start to work. Is it clear?
    Please, correct all my mistakes. I should know English perfectly and if you show me my mistakes I will achieve my dream a little bit faster. A lot of thanks.

    That seems OK to me. If you wish, replace 'finding a job' with 'starting work'.

    Re: bridge the gap between their graduation and fidning a job

    What does "bridge the gap" mean in that context?

    Re: bridge the gap between their graduation and fidning a job

    After graduation people usually spend a decent amount of time to look for a job. Thus there's a kind of "gap" between your work and your graduation. However, there's a thing which can help to find a job more quickly. That's why "it bridges the gam between starting work and graduation". I guess I can write "it serves as a bridge between starting work and gradtuation".

    Re: bridge the gap between their graduation and fidning a job

    OK. I was thinking that it might be about time (helping to find a job) or money (providing a temporary job).

    Don't people start looking for employment before they graduate?

    Re: bridge the gap between their graduation and fidning a job

    Some of them probably do but I imagine many wait until they're sure they've got their degree!
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: bridge the gap between their graduation and fidning a job

    Actually, I do not think people start looking for a job when they do not have a degree in Russia, especially in Moscow. It's incredibly difficult to find a job even if you have a degree.
