Choosing a college/university major is not an arbitrary decision made last minute upon graduation because it requires careful thought, planning, and consideration according to our interests, talents, and views in the future. More often than not, if carelessly chosen can result in the wrong major or not enjoying college life altogether.
Irene Guntur, an Educational Psychologist from Integrity Development Flexibility (IDF) stated that as many as 87 percent of college students are in a major that is not in line with their interests. Some of them chose a major that is the same as their friends, had too many suggestions that confused them, and followed what their parents want.
On September 28, 2022, PT Centratama Telekomunikasi Indonesia, TBK, volunteered during ‘Career Day’ ./ Rumah Belajar YCAB. This initiative was aimed at 22 Rumah Belajar students to find out potential study fields for college that are in line with their interests and potential.
Students were engaged with the session as the speaker shared various job fields that are available in Centratama Group and what kind of specific skills are needed to fit the role. In addition to that, students were also guided to explore their strengths, personality, and ability to make better decisions in choosing the appropriate college major. Through this fruitful session, it is hoped that the student’s careers are in tune with their interests and skills.
