The material that they talked about was the same as how we prepare ourselves before entering the workforce or tips and tricks during a job interview. Bang Aulia said to achieve our career goals, we must know our self-interest and industry needs in the future. Furthermore, We also have to add self-value such as skills, experiences, certifications, networking and also that must be prepared is motivation letter , recommendation letter, english certificaton (TOEFL/IELTS), GRE/GMAT, etc. We can participate in many activities to add self-value like to attend committee events (IPFEST, Himpunan, BEM, Units, etc.), participate in various leadership training (XL Future Leaders, Tanoto Foundation, Youth Leaders Indonesia) or courses / self-taught.
