I've read some essays in order to improve my english but I am confused about the below sentence.
"In the future, having job experience will put you at a huge advantage against your rivals who apply to the same position. For example, both candidates are graduated from the same college, have similar grades and an acceptable resume."
If we use "are graduated", i think this will be passive, is it right? Should we use like that? Or, Can we use both "with are" and "without are"?
