I always wanted to do solo travelling after I graduated, however time doesn’t permit me.
Upon my graduation, I received a prestigious job offer at a luxurious 5-star flagship hotel.

I am lucky to have the opportunity to work for a total of 4 years in Australia, however now I reside back in Indonesia.
What is one of your past working experiences?
My last job in Sydney, Australia was a Business Development Executive at Intercontinental Hotel Group (IHG). I was the Hotel’s contact person for MICE and Events related business.
In what way did the school contribute to your job right now?
SC contributed mostly towards my personal development. There are several aspects other than academic that Sekolah Ciputra assisted me with.
SC shaped my cultural awareness and leadership skills, which leads me to be one of the most suitable candidates for the job.
What advice would you give to a graduating student?
I started my job as a Night Porter, whereas my duties included delivering newspapers at night, cleaning rooms and baggage handling. It wasn’t the ideal job. However, with endless dedication, I managed to climb my way to become the Hotel’s Business Development Representative. My duties included conducting meetings, and be the face of the Hotel for new potential clients.
Creativity, hard work and dedication will pay off. Also, if you want to do great things, start doing small things with compassion and dedication.
