- Career Webinars and Skill Development Workshop (in collaboration with YIPA)
These activities are targeted to students who want to pursue their career in the UK after completing their degree. We collaborate with fellow Indonesian who has already worked professionally here in the UK to pass out handy tips and tricks in order to ace job searching. We break down these activities by sectors such as private sectors (finance, tech/IT, entrepreneurship, engineering, and consulting. It is because each sector serves different point of view in selecting potential candidates. This way, we aim to be more effective in bridging student’s interest with the right facilitators and also to produce more comprehensive discussion. This series of activities will be promoted online through social media as well as WA/Email blast.
Earlier, we have successfully conducted our first career webinar, in which was mainly discussing about working in private sectors. We invited Rania Rusly (former Software Engineer intern in Gojek and Google), Pino Edwards (Owner of Pino’s Warung), and Christy Zakarias (AVP Investor Relation at Barclays Group). There were more than 100 people joining the event and arguably the most participants amongst similar events.
- Job Fair ICE (in collaboration with YIPA)
We realise that there also some of students who want to go back to Indonesia to kick-start or continue their career in our beloved motherland. In so doing, we look forward to support YIPA in their annual Indonesia Career Evening for year 2021 since it’s normally conducted here in London. We also hope it will be a live and in-person event so that fellow Indonesian students can experience live-networking event and meet their future employer to get to know them better. Student can explore more about this event mostly on YIPA’s website and social media.
