    Hello,

    Thank you for your rapid reply, but I think there are some mistakes.. I am not sure that's why I asked,
    In the final paragraph, don't you think it would be better if we use However, because in the first paragraph, the first part of employers found huge numbers of graduate applicants but with few qualifications while in the second one, another part didn't found enough candidates which resulted in 600 unfilled positions.. so there's some contradiction.. that's why I say it's However and the final one is vacancies.

    Thank you.
