Memilih Pekerjaan Sesuai Jurusan Atau Hobi

Moment kelulusan mungkin menjadi sebuah moment yang membahagiakan sekaligus mencemaskan karena disamping bahagia karena telah menyelesaikan kuliah dan sekaligus cemas karena harus memilih pekerjaan yang sesuai dengan Yutia. Dari yang disampaikan bahwa ternyata jurusan yang dipilih bukan dari diri Yutia, namun merupakan kemauan orang tua. Ketika Yutia memutuskan menerima pilihan orang tua tersebut tentunya sudah menyadari akan konsekuensi pilihan pekerjaan yang mungkin didapatkan jika nantinya akan bekerja. Itu normalnya jika pekerjaan yang dipilih Yutia sesuai dengan jurusan kuliah.

Bekerja itu berbeda dengan hobi, jika bekerja adalah sebuah aktivitas yang dijalani dimana kita melakukan aktivitas yang diganti atau diberikan imbalan baik itu gaji atau lainnya. Sedangkan hobi adalah aktivitas yang dilakukan kala senggang, bisa mendapatkan imbalan ataupun mengeluarkan uang untuk menjalaninya. Even ada yang berawal dari hobi menjadi sebuah pekerjaan.

Saya perempuan ber umur 22 tahun. Lulusan S1 jurusan teknik sipil. Dan alhamdulillah sbgai lulusan terbaik. Saya memilih jurusan ini juga atas kemauan orang tua saya. Dan saya menjalankan dengan sangat baik. Tapi says gemar bersosialisasi dengan orang2. Saya seorang pembawa acara. Dikenal dengan master of ceremony. Saya menyukai dunia MC dan ini saya jdikan sbgai hobi. Sekarang, saya mengalami kebingungan memilih pekerjaan. Apakah tetap dijalur teknik atau saya ber alih pilihan, mohon saran dan masukannya. Sekian. Wasslm


Yutia, selamat sebagai lulusan terbaik S1 Jurusan Teknik Sipil di Univeritas. Pekerjaan yang ditawarkan oleh perusahaan, tentunya memiliki kualifikasi pendidikan dan kompetensi yang dimiliki. Pendidikan, dalam hal ini jika Yulia S1 adalah disesuaikan dengan jurusan dan tentunya selama belajar selama kuliah S1 salah satu tujuannya adalah memenuhi kompetensi teknis. Kompetensi teknis jika di dalam kuliah, diterjemahkan sebagai mata kuliah, mata kuliah inilah yang akan membentuk kompetensi yang dimiliki oleh seorang lulusan universitas. Pekerjaan salah satunya membutuhkan kompetensi teknis, dan biasanya spesifik. Misalnya Pekerjaan Civil Engineering, dimungkinkan salah satu syaratnya adalah lulusan S1 Teknis Sipil. Perusahaan berasumsi orang yang telah lulus S1 Teknik Sipil memiliki kompetensi untuk mengisi posisi sebagai Civil Engineering. Pertanyaan yang saya ajukan adalah, apakah Yulia kompetensi yang sudah di kembangkan selama 4 atau 5 tahun tidak digunakan untuk mencari pekerjaan?

Probabilitas melamar pekerjaan yang sesuai dengan jurusan, tentunya lebih tinggi diterima dibandingkan dengan melamar tidak sesuai dengan jurusan kuliah. Hobi Yutia, sebagai seorang MC, tidaklah mengapa dikembangkan dan dapat dilakukan disela-sela libur bekerja. Berbeda lagi jika Yutia merasa berkompeten untuk menjadi seorang MC, dan pekerjaan MC lebih sesuai menurut Yutia, tidak salahnya untuk mengembangkan hobi menjadi sebuah pekerjaan. Atau justru alternatif ketiga, yakni menjalani double job, dimana main jobnya adalah seorang Civil Engineer dan Side Job nya adalah menjadi seorang MC. Jadi tidak ada yang di korbankan atau dimatikan potensinya untuk mendapatkan penghasilan untuk Yutia.

Do Introverts or Extroverts Make Better Entrepreneurs?

You can divide almost every person into one of two categories: introverted or extroverted. Here's how the distinction translates to business.

June 18, 2021 6 min read

We have over 7.7 billion people on the face of this planet, and no two individuals are exactly the same. Physically, emotionally and intelligently, we are each a singular creation with differences that impact how we look, think, feel and act. And just as people can be male or female and short or tall, they can be introverted or extroverted. 

While one isn’t necessarily better than the other, it’s helpful to understand how each impacts an entrepreneur’s successes and failures.

\What does it mean to be called an introvert? 

Most people are acutely aware of whether or not they’re introverts. If you're an introvert, you'd likely rather spend a Friday night relaxing in your apartment by yourself (or with a couple of good friends) than attend a big party or event with a bunch of people. In addition, you sit on information and process it for a long time before speaking. You have good thoughts and ideas, but tend to listen to others first and speak second.

It's extremely important to understand differences between introversion and shyness. While introverts can be shy (and vice versa) these are two distinct ideas. 

Pros and cons of being an introverted entrepreneur

Most of the successful entrepreneurs across the world today are introverts. That’s because introversion yields a number of distinct benefits. Introverts typically listen more than they speak, which is great for gathering feedback and understanding customers. Moreover, entrepreneurs on the introverted side of the personality spectrum tend to be more independent and comfortable working alone, which is usually necessary in the early days of building a business.

But there are also plenty of negatives associated with introversion in entrepreneurial pursuits. Introverts typically have much smaller personal and professional networks, which limit opportunities. Additionally, introverts have a harder time putting themselves out there, which is an absolute necessity when launching a business and growing a brand.

How to make the most of your introverted personality

Want to thrive as an introverted entrepreneur? It’s important that you work with your personality to harness your strengths and overcome your weaknesses. 

Choose the right type of business

Begin by selecting the right kind of business or industry to get into. Don’t start a business that requires you to go out and speak to big audiences on a daily basis. You want a business venture that allows you to be creative and independent.

Make complementary hires

You can only go so far as an introvert on your own. That’s why it’s important to make complementary hires to offset your own weaknesses. In all likelihood, this means you’ll hire extroverts and people with big personalities and people skills.

What does it mean to be called an extrovert? 

On the other end of the personality spectrum, you have extroverts. Extroverts thrive off other people's energies and love person-to-person interactions. If you're an extrovert, you likely genuinely enjoy spending time with others and look forward to the social engagements on your calendar. You’re also fine with spontaneous meetups and random plans that materialize out of thin air; they provide meaning and energy that you need in order to thrive. And you almost always prefer to work on a team, versus alone. This gives you a chance to bounce around ideas.

It’s important to note that extroversion and confidence don’t always go hand in hand. Extroverts often are more confident than introverts, but it’s sometimes just a fa├žade. Plenty of extroverts still have low self-esteem. This can be worked through in a healthy manner. 

Pros and cons of being an extroverted entrepreneur

Extroverts bring a lot of strengths to the table as entrepreneurs. They often have a magnetic charisma, and investors, clients and business partners gravitate towards people they like and trust. Extroverts have an easy time building these relationships, which ultimately benefit the bottom line. By and large, extroverts find it easier to experience positive emotions. This can be helpful when a startup is experiencing the bumps and bruises of early-stage growth.

Extroverts also face some unique challenges with entrepreneurship. Extroverts can be easily distracted, like puppies: They see something they like and they go after it. Then before they get there, they’re intrigued by something totally different, so they get up and chase after that thing. This creates a pendulum effect, where nothing gets done efficiently or effectively. Shallow insights are another potential pitfall. Because extroverts tend to speak and do more than they listen, they have a harder time understanding who their audience is. 

How to make the most of your extroverted personality 

If you’re an extroverted entrepreneur, you have to be strategic with how you manage your personality.         

Wait before saying “Yes”

Even though your natural inclination is to go, go, go, it’s imperative that you don’t immediately commit to every opportunity that comes across your desk.

The best thing you can do is wait before saying yes.     

Hire people who are analytical

Because you’re a big-picture kind of person who likes to be hands-on and interactive, you probably don’t pay enough attention to the details. This is why it’s helpful to hire people who are more analytical and detail-oriented.          

Let other people lead meetings

As a business owner or startup founder, you’re the one calling the shots — and you should be! But it’s not always healthy for an extrovert to constantly talk, preach and lead without stepping back and observing what’s happening around him or her. One way you can be more observant is to let other people lead important meetings.  

No matter how hard you may try, an introvert can’t force himself or herself to become an extrovert. Likewise, an extrovert will find it nearly impossible to transform into an introvert. You have no say over the structure of your brain and how you perceive the world around you. The key is to play the hand you’re dealt so that you can thrive as an entrepreneur in an unpredictable environment.
