I believe the answer is:

matins

Here is my best explanation:

'service' is the definition.
(thesaurus)

'graduate isn't fantastic' is the subsidiary indication.
'graduate' becomes 'ma' (**).
'fantastic' indicates anagramming the letters.
'isnt' with letters rearranged gives 'tins'.
'ma'+'tins'='matins'

'from' is the link.
