If we look back in the past two years, what comes up in most of people’s mind? We can say, most people in the world would thinking about the pandemic. It cannot be denied, with the pandemic hit the last two years, the impacts have been felt everywhere, even for the youth or young graduate who want to find the job after graduation, it is more difficult.

So based on this condition and in line with European Year of Youth vision to contribute to a better future for young people, OCEANIA+ was formed to supporting the community through skill development. OCEANIA+ divided in two sessions, 1st session was focus on career mentoring with the trainer, Mr.Royce Woo Jun Wei, an HR Professional from Google Asia Pacific, Singapore. During the session, the trainer gave the tips and trick and explained how the resume and interview works for the job selection. Not only theory, but after that there were practical session where all participant was asked and got the chance to have interview experience.
