ARTNERSHIP WITH ALPHA OMEGA COMPUTER
Alpha Omega Computer, is located on Jalan Sudirman Denpasar, is one of the largest computer hardware distributors in Bali. Upon our explanation about Vocational Education Scholarship Program during our meeting in October 2011, the director of the company would like to give support to the program. They would like to take up the role as a partner in providing employment opportunities for vocational graduates with computer engineering skills. Two kinds of employment opportunities are offered by the company:
a. Full-Time Staff working for the company. Sponsored students during the scholarship period might undergo internship at this company. If their performance meets the company’s expectations, they would possibly be hired as afull-time staff of the company.
b. Self-employee mentoring. Upon completing the internship at this company, the graduates could start their own business by becoming an agent of the company. As a self-employee, graduates do not have to open a store; they could start even with only a piece of business card. The company will assist them as a supplier of the hardware. The company will also give them a special rate so that they could sell it at the market rate. In addition, the graduates do not have to have certain business capital to start their business. Once the self-employee graduates get a costumer, costumer need to pay 50% down payment (DP) to them. They could use certain percentage of this DP as the DP for their order to the company. The leftover payment can be paid once their customer gets the product and pays it off. In addition, as a mentor, the company could provide sample products that can be carried by the graduates for promotion purpose. If the graduates have the capital resources to open a store, the company would guide them in determining the best location and, expanding their network, as well as business financial management.
The opportunities offered by Alpha Omega Computer would bring a huge impact for those who want to get and/or to create a job. On behalf of our future sponsored students; we would like to acknowledge the company for their great contribution.
