Labor Minister Ida Fauziyah is upbeat about the Indonesian Muslim University (UMI) Makassar producing human resources that are ready to work.
“We just need to synergize the job market with the UMI alumni,” Fauziyah stated as quoted in a press release from that university here on Saturday.
The minister pointed to the major impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on employment in Indonesia, including causing an increase in the number of unemployed.
The minister is optimistic that the university would not contribute to new unemployment.
“Hence, the efforts we need to undertake are link and match between the education sector, business sector, and the industrial sector. Let us together prevent new unemployment through various ways that we have,” she affirmed.
During the visit to UMI on Friday, Fauziyah also conveyed the need for universities to hold job fairs.
“Through this effort, we can together see job opportunities both at home and abroad,” the minister stated.
