The activity which was held at Grha Sabha Pramana Universitas Gadjah Mada (UGM) on Tuesday (10/22) was attended by more than 1,000 prospective graduates from master and doctoral programs.
“Universitas Gadjah Mada not only equips with knowledge but also equips with values which will later become guidelines for entering the workforce,” he said, opening a briefing session.
Rosalia is an alumnus from Faculty of Law UGM and graduated in 1988. In addition to a career at Bank Indonesia, Rosalia is also a non-permanent lecturer at the Faculty of Law UGM in international class programs. Rosalia added that it was the integrity of work that brought her up to this point.
“The world of campus is our place to compete within ourselves, but the world of work is a place where we have to compete while collaborating with others,” said the woman who also contributed in making this public policy.
Moderated by Uji Nugroho Winardi, M.A., Rosalia said that competition in collaboration is a way to be adaptive in work environment. As a social person, everyone cannot fight alone. Even though we have to compete with each other, values in collaboration are also very important and needed so that everyone can develop. Rosalia also said in front of thousands prospective graduates to remain resilient and not give up on one failure.
Competing is a common thing that happens in the world of work. Collaboration is a way for the competition to be healthier and does not harm any party. Collaboration is needed by instilling moral values in order to achieve common goals. By collaborating, the competition formed is a way to become better and be able to continue learning new things from others.
Prospective graduates of the postgraduate program are scholars in the millennial era who must have mastered the basic concepts of science. Rosalia sees that there are many opportunities to be able to innovate, especially to keep the economy sustainable. Therefore, mastering the basic concepts will be very important when looking for solutions to problems that will always exist in the world of work.
“In the world of work, there will always be individuals who can think quickly in solving problems. Mastery of concepts is the root of finding solutions, “she added.
Her love of work is also proof of Rosalia’s integrity in the world of work. Rosalia said that being smart alone would not be enough to reach an important position, but also with perseverance, commitment, and also integrity.
“One goal will not be achieved without perseverance and commitment in doing a job,” she said.
Rosalia hopes that the prospective graduates can continue to carry the good name of UGM and instil UGM characters in each step. Being an honest person is also one of the keys to success in society. Graduating from UGM is the beginning to become a contributor to the country.
