BANDAR SERI BEGAWAN, Wednesday, May 2. - Participants of the Post-Graduate Civic Villages Programme are urged to always prepare themselves with knowledge and experience before stepping into the work environment.
They are also encouraged to take on their own initiative, such as engaging in volunteer and part-time work to achieve as much experience as possible and not just sit at home, while waiting for work in government departments.
This was confirmed by Acting Director of Information, Awang Mawardi bin Haji Mohammad during the Dialogue Session with the participants of the First Brunei Darussalam Post-Graduate Civic Villages Programme for the Year 2018 which took place at Tarindak D'Seni.
Awang Mawardi further explained that they need to have good knowledge of the department and position they are applying for and should be confident in answering the questions posed during the interview.
According to him, the opportunities for each individual are different, some continue to get jobs after graduation, while others are waiting for a long time to get a job, but that does not matter, because what is important is that the individual is not discouraged and continues to achieve knowledge and experience continuously.
He also does not deny that today's youths are able to fill up the vacancies available, but only need to add more experience, knowledge and know how to do things.
The success is obvious, not just when someone has got a job but is more than that.
The Dialogue Session with Department of Information Director, among others, is to share information and experience on current issues including on the nature of employment where program participants also have the opportunity to ask related questions.
Head of participants, Awang Ahmad Fadillah bin Haji Abd. Rahman, a graduate from Universiti Brunei Darussalam (UBD) said that, through this civic village, they have gained much knowledge from briefings held by several departments in the government sector.
He futher added that the dialogue is also a golden opportunity, as they can find out preparations before being employed in the government sector, as well as pre-interviewing preparations and so on.
