UNS — As an effort to equip prospective graduates in entering the workplace, the Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Science (FMIPA) Universitas Sebelas Maret (UNS) Surakarta held a work preparation webinar on Thursday (21/10/2021) for students who will graduate on October 2021 and last year students. Three speakers were invited to deliver materials in this webinar, Rosalina Nugraheni, M.Psi, the founder and CEO of Naraya Consulting. Naraya Consulting is an institution that provides Human Resource consultancy that often holds sessions on career, psychology, awareness, healing, and entrepreneurship.

Rosalina discussed the gaps between work and business fields and shared tips on preparing appropriate Curriculum Vitae (CV). She stated that a good CV is not too long but concise and informative. She also reminded students to make sure that they wrote real data in their CVs. “Especially in terms of competencies, skills, and experiences,” Rosalina stated. She added that job hunting is like a war that students need to prepare everything well to win the fights. These preparations include material preparation, selecting where to compete, and competing well until securing the dream job.

The second speaker, Catur Sugiyarto, Ph.D., a faculty member, entrepreneur, and the Chief of Start-Up and Incubation Division UNS, shared tips to be successful in the business world. He stated that to create a successful business, an entrepreneur needs to maintain and focus on their business, as well as be consistent in implementing their business plan. Catur added that currently, UNS has Sebelas Maret Startup Academy (SEMESTA), or a series of downstream ecosystem development and entrepreneurship.

“Semesta program starts with the pre-incubation stage through the development of start-up ecosystem and implementation of a grant scheme for innovative product development that matches for students who are starting and developing their business,” Catur explained.

The last speaker, Moh Abdul Hakim, Ph.D., shared the details of the Scholastic Potential Test (TPS) or psychological test. Abdul Hakim explained that this test is a collection of behavioral samples that are expected to reflect the certain quality of an individual. The psychological tests have several types, including ability and personality tests.

“Ability test is used to assess skills, including agility, accuracy, or both. While personality test is used to assess typical behavior, character, temperament, and disposition,” he explained.

The Dean of FMIPA, Drs. Harjana, Ph.D., in his opening remark, hoped that this event could equip the graduates to be ready to enter the workplace.
