“Berkat dukungan dari para dosen, saya memperoleh beasiswa pertukaran pelajar untuk menempuh semester ganjil 2013/2014 di Hokusei Gakuen University, Sapporo, Jepang. Saya mendapatkan beasiswa selama 14 minggu, dengan fasilitas yang sangat memadai serta uang jajan yang cukup. Di sana saya bukan hanya belajar bahasa dan budaya Jepang saja, melainkan pelajaran lainnya seperti ekonomi Jepang, dan masyarakat Jepang berikut masalah yang timbul di dalamnya, dan lain sebagainya. Saya dapat mengalami, mengamati dan mempraktikkan apa yang telah dipelajari di perkuliahan.”

“Saya berkuliah di Program Studi S-2 Psikologi Sains, salah satunya adalah karena program ini menerima mahasiswa dari jurusan apa pun, dan karena perkuliahannya dilakukan dengan jam kuliah siang hingga sore, sehingga tidak mengganggu aktivitas saya bekerja. Berkuliah di program ini sangat seru dan sangat bermakna bagi saya. Saya mendapatkan banyak ilmu dari dosen-dosen yang sangat kooperatif, berwawasan luas, dan selalu tulus membantu. Banyak teori dan pengalaman dalam perkuliahan yang sangat membantu saya dalam beraktivitas di dunia kerja yang sedang saya geluti saat ini, khususnya dalam dunia pendidikan.”

  1. On a piece of paper, write down what you believe are your biggest strengths and most useful skills. What do you think your weaknesses are? Be honest with yourself. Nobody else has to see this list.
  2. Now, write down what your interests are. What type of work do you think you’ll enjoy doing?
  3. Write a fictitious job description that would represent what you feel is the ideal job for you. As you ultimately apply for each job, compare the job you’re applying for with the job descriptions you wrote. In an ideal situation, you want both descriptions to be similar.
  4. Think about, and then write down, your professional/career goal(s) for upcoming year. The next 3 years. The next 5 years. The next 10 years. Try to be specific.
  5. Do research and determine several industries that require people with your skills and interests. Visit your local school library, or use your computer to access on-line databases and reference materials. Read newspaper and magazine articles that relate to the industries you select. Talk to as many people as you can that are currently working in the industries you choose.
  6. Within the industries you select, pinpoint several specific companies that you think you might want to work for.
  7. Do the jobs you’re applying for involve doing work that you enjoy and that interests you? Do the jobs you’re applying for offer the opportunity for you to learn new skills and challenge yourself? What type of career path (promotion opportunities) do the jobs offer?
  8. What are the people like that you’ll be working with? Is your personality similar to theirs?
  9. Are the work environments within the companies you’re applying to places where you think you’ll be productive and happy?
  10. Will the job you’re applying for allow you to work your way closer to achieving your long-term goals?
