If we look back at the background of issues that often occur, several companies today, including Zenius, often demand quite high standards for the quality of young talent they will accept to work. One of the most favorite qualifications to "have" for every job vacancy is "having work experience". Meanwhile, in previous times, fresh graduates did not necessarily have work experience due to several reasons, such as not all campuses requiring credits for taking practical work, or information on internship opportunities that were difficult to find, or students who did not have enough initiative to look for opportunities for skills training. professionals through an internship program. With the Independent Campus Program from the Ministry of Education, Culture, Research and Technology, students will be more facilitated in connecting with companies in Indonesia to hone their professional competencies for at least 3 months to gain direct practical work experience.

In the Certified Internship program at Zenius, the author also learned about skills that are important for the younger generation to have, such as Scientific Thinking Ability, Literacy Ability, Quantitative Reasoning, and Logic. In this Sociology Subject Research position, the author carried out several activities including, designing Learning Content Assessment Instruments, Designing High School Sociology Assessment Instruments, Basics of High School Sociology Learning Content Production, Basics of Asynchronous Learning, and the Final Project in the form of a Comparative Analysis of the 2013 Curriculum and Independent Curriculum. The implementation of these activities certainly experienced several obstacles, but with help from several parties, all of them could be overcome. The final assessment obtained by the author was quite satisfactory.​

This internship activity, which lasts five months, provides experience and learning for the participants. I gained various knowledge as well as a means to channel my work and interest in writing. Without forgetting my role as a Sociology Education student, there was a lot of learning during lectures which also supported me in undergoing a Certified Internship program as a content creator for the Mind of the People Media Network.​
