The event invited Hopy Familianto, CEO of CODEX, a special team from Telkom Indonesia that manages Digital Talent Cycle and Arief Susanto, Founder & CEO of Dusdukduk, a creative business that has made many breakthroughs.


In the first session, Hopy began his session with a question, "How can we be relevant with digital? How can we survive in digital? " It is a common fact that the current technology plays a major role in every line of business, whatever the industry is. To start a career in the middle of this new era, he explained several points that need to be highlighted, namely understanding the company, yourself, and digital. "Every company has a company profile, learn the vision and mission, work culture in the company, and the products they work on. Then, learn how the company profile matches the skills we have," he said. Furthermore, he also mentioned that we are not competing against other employees, but with ourselves therefore it is important to do continuous learning. "Don't be afraid to start your career because what the company needs is not the best employees, but the best version of you, at the moment," he said.


Meanwhile, Arief shared his experiences and tips on becoming entrepreneurs in the second session. He said that the current pandemic has created limitations that encourage us to think more creatively. "Creativity must be possessed by people from various fields, not only applied to people with a design background. Creativity should be applied to all fields," he said. Furthermore, he mentioned that creativity is not only limited to the process of product making, but the system of the business itself requires creativity, for example, marketing strategies, financial management which also requires innovation and breakthroughs. "Ready for new normal, we see this opportunity as a new creative industry with new consumer needs, new business goals, a new business model, and finally new leads to service experience," he concluded.


The event was attended by students, lecturers, and alumni who were interested in becoming entrepreneurs as well as students who participated in Corporate Entrepreneurship course. (SL)
