CV Workshop and Training 2019

On the 22nd of November 2019, IISE BINUS withheld a workshop regarding how to make a proper CV (Curriculum Vitae) and handling job interviews. The workshop was run in room 301 in Anggrek Campus from 1 PM until 3 PM. 29 people and a public speaker attended this workshop intended to help provide education towards relatively new students, especially IISE members, to prepare for the 3+1 enrichment program in the final year of the curriculum.

For the workshop, we invited Miss Andriati Endang Pratiwi, a manager in the Human Resource Department as our public speaker. The workshop started slow as some of the participants came up late due to the rain. Starting the session, Miss Andriati explained how a CV should be simple yet attractive. Starting from your full name, address, mobile number, to your skill and experience. In the middle of the session, Miss Andriati showed an example of a well-structured CV, and the participant had a little session to construct their CV following the sample shown. Lastly, Miss Andriati described what kind of mindset and behavior that you need to possess to successfully sell yourself to hiring companies.

The final session was a Q&A session where Miss Andriati can elaborate more deeply on what concept the participants couldn’t grasp clearly. Many of the participants asked great questions from their curiosity, showing that the workshop was indeed helpful in supplying people with worthwhile information. Even though faced with many difficulties in the preparation for the workshop, it resolved with a group photo and ended well. A lot can be learned by both the participants and the committees, and we hope the knowledge shared that day to be beneficial to every participant.


Workshop: Basic of Copywriting

Copywriting is a form of sales and marketing technique that uses writing as the intermediary. It is essential for online success in today’s digital age and is needed globally as it plays an important role in content marketing. Copywriting skills are necessary for company growth as they can benefit from writing to convince customers of the product’s need. Institute of Industrial and Systems Engineers (IISE) BINUS University Student Chapter # 716, as part of Industrial Engineering, conducted a copywriting workshop to provide participants a basic copywriting concept overview and its relationship to business strategy and content marketing. The workshop which was held on the nineteenth of December 2020, requested the presence of Mahansa Sinulingga as a qualified speaker for the event. The speaker’s expertise is already proven by his career history as a Copywriting Supervisor at PT. Kompas Media Nusantara.

The workshop was attended by 24 persons, started with an initial introduction about copywriting. Copywriting is a writing skill that leads someone to an activity, inviting them to buy a product or to take part in an event. The material included an explanation of the difference between content writing and copywriting. The differences between content writing and copywriting can be classified by its distinctive writing style to approach the customer. Content writing applies the Search Engine Optimization (SEO) approach by using colloquial language while in copywriting, a copywriter must have a strong copy by using a style that has an approach to call to action. Copywriters have to understand the customer segment to know what kind of copywriting style is the right one to be used to sell a particular product.

The speaker explained that there are 4 important components in writing copywriting that includes AIDA (Attention, Interest, Desire, and Action). These four essential components optimize the performance of copywriting to show customers the product brief information attractively. The speaker also provided various examples of interesting advertisements, such as XL Axiata advertisements. XL Axiata is able to create attractive advertisements by applying the copywriting skills to describe the product to reach the ‘Desire’ stage according to AIDA. The technique is often used in copywriting to make the advertisement more attractive and persuasive. This kind of writing style keeps copywriting from requiring a call to action type of writing.

The event provided a session where participants were able to do copywriting about  MaMiMuMeMo (Makan Minum Murah Menang Mobil) Gojek culinary party that is prepared by the speaker. The brainstorming and QnA session allowed the participants to raise questions regarding the topic. There was a participants’ work performance assessment for participants’ potential development that is done by the speaker to help the participant learns more about good copywriting.

The workshop was ended with a documentation session. The interaction between the speaker, moderator, and participants kept the workshop alive and interesting. The audience engagement was mastered well and the workshop ran smoothly until the end of the schedule.


Minitab Workshop: Let’s Speak with Data

The ‘Minitab Workshop: Let’s Speak with Data’ was the first workshop held by Institute of Industrial and Systems Engineers (IISE) BINUS University Student Chapter #716 in 2021. The ability to analyze statistical data is very much needed in the world of lectures or work. In analyzing and managing statistical data, people usually use software. However, it is very unfortunate because there are still many who are not proficient in its use.

IISE BINUS University Student Chapter #716 was highly motivated to hold a Minitab workshop for many people to learn how to analyze statistical data properly. Google Meet was the chosen platform of the committees to run the event. The number of participants exceeded the maximum limit of Google Meet available seat in such short period. The platform changed into Zoom meeting. Originally, the event would be held on 17th January 2021, but due to the speaker’s urgent matters, the event was rescheduled to 24th January 2021 at 12.40 WIB. The workshop was attended by 171 participants and 8 committees.

Mathew Yose Hananta, a Data Consultant at Statistics Solution and Actuarial Valuation at PT Asuransi Jiwa BCA, was invited to be the speaker of the Minitab workshop. The workshop was held for 2 hours 35 minutes. It started with the opening by the master ceremony. Upon the introductory session, the meeting platform experienced a non-detected, ambiguous disturbance. Once the Zoom link was identified as the source of error, the participants was asked to move to another link. The glitch persisted and most of the participants could not hear the speaker’s voice clearly. The final decision was made and the workshop was held using Microsoft Teams platform, where no further error was encountered.

Started with brief introduction to Minitab, the workshop went quite well. Mr. Yose explained about Minitab comparison to other software. Although not as popular as R or Python, Minitab has its perks of being user friendly. Mr. Yose elaborated on the steps in analyzing statistical data using this particular software. In order to provide a clearer understanding, a few case studies were given. Evidently, the usage of Minitab still needs the user understanding of manual statistical data processing such as normality tests. The workshop proceeded with the Q&A session. One participant asked about the specific normality test, which the speaker immediately responded.

At the end of the event, a documentation session took place. The workshop was closed by the MC while the participants were filling out the exit ticket. Only 171 of 200 participants stayed until the event closing due to the prior error. Although faced the unexpected error, the committees had done well under-pressure and carried out the event successfully.
