Looking for a job in Batam? Think Twice Guys .....

As one of industrial cities in Indonesia, Batam becomes people’s intention to visit. Many people from cities in Indonesia come to batam every months. From all the visitors who come to batam, more than 80% are fresh graduated who are looking for a job here. Most of them are graduated from Senior High School, Technical High School, Economical High School and the rest are graduated from some universities in Indonesia. I am sure there must be some reasons why they choose batam to find jobs for them.

Through some conversations that I have conducted with some people who come to batam for a new job. I can conclude that the main reason why people come to batam because they have information that it is very easy to find a job in batam. This information they got from their friends who are working in batam. Another reason is, As there are many companies that available in batam, they have many choices which companies and positions they will apply to. These two reasons cause many young people who have graduated from senior high school out side batam always dream that they will find a good job in batam. They even never check whether the information that they hear from their friends is true or not.

In fact, it is not that easy as their friends said to them. From what I have seen so far in Batam, there are many fresh graduated from senior high school come to batam and then try to find a job but finally they fail to find a job and go back to their villages. They really waste their money and time to come here. And most of them realize that it is not easy to find a job in batam after they experienced themselves. It is not only the graduation of Senior high school who fail to find a job in batam, many university graduations are unable to compete with other competitors too. However some qualified people succeed to find a job in batam.

Many people fail to get a job in batam because they don’t have any skills. Certificates from schools are not enough when you apply for a new job in Batam. If you are from Senior High School, you should be able to operate computer well. Besides, knowing English language is a good point for you as English is an international language which is always used in many companies in Batam. For you who graduated from Technical High School, you must master the major that you studied.
