“It works as a bridge between students who have graduated or before graduation and multinational companies, especially for UNAIR graduates, “he said. “There are some companies that open booths here, state-owned and private, “he added.
To the students, Tubiyono hoped the activity can be utilized well. In addition, students are encouraged to actively undertake career training by UNAIR through PPKK such as soft skills training and entrepreneurship.
