In his speech, Dr. Andre Ikhsano said that “The definition of a career, a profession or a good job is what we like, brings many benefits to others, and brings economic value to us. For that, my message for students in choosing a major is to choose a major that you like and don’t go along with friends, choose a major that will take us to a profession that is beneficial to many people, and choose a major that can lead us to the profession. which provides economic value for us ”. Meanwhile, Dr. J.A. Wempi gave a message to students that “What you need to pay attention to in choosing a major is knowledge of the field you are going to work on related to that department, then look at the talents we have, as well as the passion where we want to fight and work hard in that department or field.”
With this Online Majoring Seminar, it is hoped that students, especially those from the Faculty of Communication, can get information about the majors and fields of work or what kind of profession is available, then be able to find out the correlation between the department and the work they are going to do later through sharing experiences that have been given directly by successful alumni of IKB LSPR in their respective fields and departments. Not only that, in this activity students were also given socialization about what series or stages they had to follow before actually choosing the major they wanted. The hope is that students’ awareness of the importance of majoring can be formed so that they can go through each stage or series of processes properly and optimally, so that they are more determined in choosing a major in the Communication Faculty of IKB LSPR. The two study programs, both Communication Science and Visual Communication Design (DKV), jointly hold an Online Majoring Seminar through the Zoom platform and broadcast live via YouTube LSPR Jakarta. In this event, students were also given the opportunity to provide questions that could be addressed to the Role Models, so that the event ran enthusiastically and with great fanfare. Not to forget, at the end of the event students also received information from the Department of Finance regarding tuition payments and e-pin collection that can be done at each campus, both LSPR Sudirman Park and LSPR Transpark.
