[unpad.ac.id, 10/4/2019] A number of national companies participated in a job exhibition called “Unpad Job Fair 2019” held by the Tracer Study and Career Development Center Office (TS-CDC) Unpad working with Unpad BUMN Center of Excellence (Unpad BCE) at Grha Sanusi Harjadinata Unpad, Dipati Ukur Street No. 35, Bandung, Wednesday (10/4) and Thursday (11/4).
Head of TS-CDC Unpad Dr. Rosaria Mita Amalia, M.Hum., said, more than 5,000 participants have signed up to join the job fair. This event tries to enrich the participants’ career competence.
“This is Unpad’s yearly agenda meant to bridge the alumni with business and industry,” spoke Rosaria at the opening of the job fair, Wednesday (10/4).
Other than a job exhibition joined by 30 companies, there are also some activities meant to enrich the participants’ career competence, like an introduction to the working culture in several state-owned enterprises, career development workshops, as well as talk shows on tips and tricks to apply for a job from several companies.
Not only that, visitors could find various information around the graduate program in Unpad and scholarship opportunities from universities abroad.
Rosaria said, companies taking part in this event weren’t just from conventional companies. Some startups were also doing open hiring at this job fair. “[We hope that] through this exhibition they can get the best talent,” she said.
Unpad rector Prof. Tri Hanggono Achmad in his opening speech said that this event is Unpad’s effort in order to increase the career competence of its graduates which is very crucial. This is because in the Industrial Revolution 4.0 era, improving the competence of human resources is compulsory.
The business and industrial world, said the rector, must do a very strong synergy with universities as provider of human resources. Companies can give an illustration of the career revolution pattern in the 4th Industrial Revolution era.
“The company must be able to facilitate the younger generation in developing their careers so that they can contribute to our development,” said the rector.
The opening of “Unpad Job Fair 2019” is attended by a number of management officers in Unpad, representative of the participating companies, as well as representative from the Indonesian Ministry of Labor.
