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.
