Not having a degree doesn't mean you are skilled either...

Degrees do not claim to give you industrial skill sets. They build prior knowledge. A software engineer cannot go do the job of a mechanical engineer. "Projects" Are so you know how to use knowledge offloaded in college in a real-life environments. Every company has its own proprietary pipeline. You can't expect colleges to train you for all these pipelines. You are right about their babysitting part. However, you can't blame a person for this. Look at the curriculum they mug up just to pass exams. The curriculum is archaic. Doesn't really help with the new age.

You mean people have to learn the job because their study isn’t catered to a specific job they get with the knowledge their study gave them? And that means they can’t possibly know all in and outs of the job but want to do a good job so they ask questions which leads to -how you call it- babysitting? Wow, shocking. Just get over it. I’d rather babysit a new employee than one that thinks he can do it all and goes off making simple mistake after mistake.

I am very skilled, thank you very much. I just need to find a job that requires me to paraphrase Wikipedia articles until the plagiarism checker turns green. That's my biggest strength.

Most recent graduates know close to nothing about their jobs. Years of experience is what makes you skilled, not a degree.

It means you are skilled at getting that specific degree. Which can means a lot of things, depending on the degree.
