I had an employee class yesterday. I’m teaching D3 students. Students of mine mostly are working people. That’s how i wonder about something..
Back in my younger days,when i just finished my high school, it was really hard for me to get a job with my high school diploma. I’ve tried and tried (even for being a rep) but it wasn’t work at all. Now, when i see those students, they have worked in companies or even bank.. Lucky them.
To see that situation, questions cross in my mind.
1. What academic certificate do they have?
2. How could they get a job?
To answer these questions, I’ve made a small talk with them. Apparently, some of them are already took 1 year course, So they already had D1 diploma, some of them had acquaintance in that company and the rest of them said that they were just lucky.
About the certificate, as mentioned earlier, some of them got D1 certificate and some of them got high school certificate. Another question appear. With the same certificate that we have, why couldn’t i got a job? Now, i learn that it’s a matter of area. My hometown is merely a small city so, the employment is still low. While Bandung is a bigger city, with many business field, so employment in this city is quite high and labor is well absorbed.
well, at least that what i understand for now, and i feel relief.
