IMG_1081

Meanwhile on the other side, companies have difficulties in finding programmers

IMG_1082

In the fast growing market
IMG_1083

and the global invasion

IMG_1084

then it is common for hijacking the best talents (read: programmers)
IMG_1085

So why are you still not getting the job you want?

IMG_1086

And how to get the awesome job at startup?
IMG_1087

#1 Know your strength. Read the map, and find your expertise.

IMG_7714

The awesome audience πŸ™‚

IMG_7715

If you think girls in IT would look so dull and nerdy, take a look at this one πŸ™‚

IMG_7716

After you graduate, what do you want to do? Most will answer that they will get married, or running family business, applying for a job and start up a company.

IMG_7717

The fact is that the statistic of unemployment rate for diploma/bachelor degree is very high.

IMG_7719

While the entrepreneur rate in Indonesia is very low compared to Malaysia, Singapore and Japan.

IMG_7720

The biggest reasons of why Indonesia is lacking of entrepreneur are these

IMG_7721

Plus, becoming a founder of startup is a full of stress and pressure. Lots of start up founder committed suicide due of mental breakdown.

IMG_7723

So are you sure you want to be an entrepreneur?

The most common mental problems of entrepreneur is depression, ADHD and anxiety problems.
