THOUSANDS OF JOB SEEKERS COME TO THE 19TH UDINUS’ JOB FESTIVAL
The 19th Job Fair of Dian Nuswantoro University (Udinus) was wrapped differently from the previous Job Fair. The different was that Udinus Career Center (UCC) collaborated with The National Private Bank Association (Perbanas) in this event.
Financial industry is on the rise and it needs more professional workers. The Financial Services Authority (OJK) noted that in September 2017 the number of Commercial Bank offices reached 32,535. Due to that number, the absorption of professional workers will be constantly updated. Moreover, the rotation of bank employees is quite short.
"The 19th Job Fair is remarkable, 18 times in a row we held Job Fair, this one is different. There are 7 different activities in this job fair such as employee recruitment, photography competition, live music, culinary festival, creative seminar, photography exhibition, and career consultation "explained Dr. Kusni Ingsih MM as The Vice Rector III Udinus before the opening of The 19th Job Fair. Because there were 7 activities in this event, this Job Fair was called Job Festival.
There were 14 national private banks in total from Perbanas joined this Job Fair. There are various job vacancies in the banking world. Banking is not limited in the economic world only. Graduates from other fields can also work in bank. "Nowadays, if we are not collaborated with the others, then we will be left behind" said Hari Suseno, The Chairman of Perbanas Semarang.
