Are perspicacious and adaptable used correctly?

Aren't they looking for people who have graduated and are no longer students?

That is quite informal.

I think this might be what you mean to say.

In other words, businesses are looking to hire people who graduated at the top of their class, and who are willing to move and work in a variety of positions. These graduates are sought after by executive search firms who get a handsome finders fee for locating, identifying and recruiting the best candidates for large corporations.

It's hard to say. There is not enough context for me to judge the use of the lofty "perspicacious". "Thus" means that what came before results in what comes after, but the connection is not clear, especially because of the switch from the puzzling "flexible" to the nebulous "adaptable", which implies that they are two different traits although ordinarily they are not. And I'm not sure that headhunters welcome people so much as they seek them. These confusing elements cast doubt on the writer's mastery of such high-register diction.

Students: Are you brave enough to let our tutors analyse your pronunciation?

Thank you.

I read an essay by my friend and thought that sentence has some problems related to the word usage, and that's true.
