Youth Career Planning Workshop 2019

  • 2020/02/07

What happens when a group of highly enthusiastic students meet passionate facilitators and great speakers? You get a very dynamic session and many lessons to learn.

That was what happened in the 2019 YKIP’s Youth Career Planning Workshop! We invited all 12-graders of our KEMBALI program to attend the workshop on December 15, 2019. One of our donors, Mitrais, generously let use the space in their office. The 47 students attending the workshop come from different KEMBALI program areas, such as Gianyar, Badung, Karangasem, and Tejakula. They were eager to attend the workshop and learn new skills for their future.

The first session was a team building game led by our facilitator, Mr Irwan, a skilled game master and facilitator with more than 30 years of experience. Assisted by our volunteers, the students were divided into six groups, where they had to meet new students from other areas that they had never met before. Thus, this game developed their networking skills.

The next three sessions highlighted job search skills. Guided by Ms Hesty, Mitrais HR Officer, the children were exposed to a range of effective CVs and cover letters. Besides, the children were also trained to gain more understanding of an interview process. Two lucky students got the chance to experience an interview simulation, which will be valuable for them both as well for others in the future.

After the lunch break, the workshop continued with a sharing session from one of YKIP University Program Alumni, Darsana. Darsana graduated from Udayana University majoring in public health. Currently, he works for an NGO in East Bali, EBPP. He motivated the students to work hard and pursue their dream against all odds. Darsana’s sharing session fascinated the younger students as it was motivating.

Learn from the professionals

Finally, there came a time to learn from the professionals. YKIP invited the Bali branch manager of Victoria Bank, Ms Putu Mas, to share the career opportunity in banking and finance sectors. With her experience working in several national and multinational banks, she shared a precious lesson to the children who would like to pursue their career in the banking industry.

The session was followed by an informative talk from Grand Hyatt Bali Training Manager, Ms Ayu Era, who presented career opportunity in hotel Industry. Furthermore, she also informed about the opportunity to become hotel trainees and apprentices in Grand Hyatt Bali.

For those who are interested in starting their own business, we invited Ms Anik, the owner of Omah Bolu Batik, an online cake store. Ms Anik was once a nurse and she shared her story about how she became an entrepreneur after resigning from the hospital she worked in. She also encouraged the children to have the courage and determination if they want to be a successful entrepreneur.

The last part of the workshop was allocated for information-sharing session about the scholarships available in Indonesia. We invited Mr Murlanda, the State Accounting College alumnus, to discuss the study programs in some schools and state-owned colleges. This session exposed the students to Bidik Misi scholarship available in Udayana University. The last presentation from YKIP rounded off the day by providing the students with the opportunity to get more information on the University and Vocational Training provided by YKIP.

It is expected that all students attending the career day will be able to make a wise decision to achieve a better future. We also would like to thank all sponsors and volunteers for their enormous support for this event. We hope to see you in the next career day!
