Challenge for graduates, leave idealism cocoon

BY ERMIZI MUHAMAD
SHAH ALAM, JUL 5: Graduates need to be brave to leave their new idealism cocoon to become more competitive after completing their studies in Higher Learning Institutions.
The Deputy Vice Chancellor for Selangor University (UNISEL) Student Development and Community Network, Prof Dr Shaharuddin Badaruddin said, studying and working present very different life situations for graduates to adapt.
“Student life is full of idealism. Idealism means during studying, the environment is suitable. Students mix with themselves, same age, while in reality there is a wide difference in society.
“There differences in race, society, politics and many more. That is the situation in the society now, so the biggest challenge for graduates is how to emerge from the world of idealism into the real world.
“When they leave, graduates who complete their studies must contribute to their families or secondly, they may also want to create their own families,” he said.
The UNISEL’s Vice President also said the competition outside campus is a real challenge for graduates particularly to grab whatever opportunities that are available.
He said, the opportunities available must be fully used to ensure their skills and qualifications will add value for them to face the real world.
“Those who are most skillful and stand out will be accepted in the market. That is the challenge of globalisation and internationalisation with the current gloomy economy,” he said.
