At a time like this, it takes a nation that is innovative, able to make decisions, and able to collaborate synergistically. Professionalism, leadership, and networking are the main competencies to create a glorious career. The alums are expected to have these competencies to meet the current market demand for human resources.

“For undergraduate alumni, this seminar is to prepare and equip friends to enter the world of work.

The reason, said Debie, is that performance and professionalism will be significantly tested in the first year of a career.

“After the pandemic, which has changed our perspective on many things, we need to realize that we currently need people who are willing and willing to learn and able to make decisions quickly in an uncertain situation. Apart from that, we will also face various unpredictable and far-fetched problems.
