Studying in College has a Lot of Temptations

Learning means providing opportunities for healthy competition between old and new experiences and between old knowledge and new knowledge. The old one is usually more secure, but doesn’t guarantee progress. The new one usually feels foreign and unfamiliar, but it can be promised to see
and progress.

Why do we study and why do we study? Questions like this are very worthy and worthy of being presented by the Indonesian people.

very simple that Indonesian people will always end up with something that will be given after studying and earning a degree, a certificate. For us college is to work, not vice versa work for college. So how “happy” it will be if after graduation you get a job that suits you, vice versa. How “uneasy” he was after college did not get a job.

At first glance it may seem that college for work is certainly not entirely to blame, although sometimes it is not. It’s not wrong because what do you do after studying if you don’t want to work. What’s the point after studying deeply if it’s not devoted to a job, especially since the job doesn’t make money. Don’t we go to college by sacrificing so much money, draining energy and thoughts and sacrificing a lot of time. In thoughts like this, it’s not wrong if you go to college for work. Once again though not true.

But what is expected in college is completely different from what happens in reality after college. Because in fact after college, tens or even thousands of unemployed graduates do not get jobs. Every year, all universities issue thousands of graduates, while job vacancies (especially civil servants) are very few. For example, those who graduated 5000 graduates, civil servant vacancies only accepted 5 employees. Of the 5000 graduates, 4995 people are unemployed. Cut those who work in the private sector also do not receive much.

From 4995 job applicants, for example, private companies only accept 995 employees. This means that the remaining 4000 people are still unemployed. Cut again to job vacancies that are completely unrelated to the science of 1000 employees college. That means the remaining 3000. Of these 3000, 1500 people work based on the relation of KKN (Collusion, Corruption, Nepotism) or in our terms based on D3 (Sundanese: Dulur, Deukeut, Duit). Which 1500 means there is no other choice but to have to take odd jobs or poke fun (a very uncertain job). Plumbing work is a job simply to survive.

From a scale like this, intending to study for work is very slim. The comparison is 0.10%. If you want to go to college to work, you have very little chance of getting a job. From every year that graduation, only 0.10% get a job as it should. Even then, half of the 0.10% who get work are based on KKN or D3. Does anyone still get a job purely based on skills from studying in college? The answer is of course there is. It is only 1.5% from 0.10% earlier. Here, the competition is tough to win 1.5% from 0.10% by 5000 graduates every year from every university in Indonesia in pursuing a job.

Unlike the pure. Those who have relatives (Dulur) can certainly not find it so difficult to find work after college. Likewise, those who have closeness (Deukeut) and those who have a lot of money (Duit). Because people can easily get jobs, whether or not they are in accordance with the education they are undergoing. Because of the close relationship, people tend to easily occupy strategic jobs. And because of money people can buy jobs at any cost. Brothers, relationships, and money are the most real things and are still valid in Indonesia. Because of these three paths, a person can become a “pretend” in studying on campus.

Not Only Education

It seems too troublesome if everyone goes to college just to work. Because the competition must be so heavy while there are very few vacancies. Fortunately, the ideals of college students are not all eager to work, but there are also those who, on the contrary, work for college. The logic of working for college is very different from the logic of studying for work. If studying for work is so hard to get what you want in the future, then working for college is not so easy in fighting for your dreams. It’s just that in it there is an inner strength in living life as an existentialistic Human; choose loyalty in taking “something” that is uncertain rather than simply surrendering to “something” that is absolutely certain.

At the same time, we must understand that whether we realize it or not, the essence of education is clearly for change. People after getting a long education or even a moment can certainly soon have to change. Change for good or change for bad after learning. Because what’s the point of education if it doesn’t change, for the better or for the worse. Real education is learning that really determines a person to change himself (specifically) and change his environment (general). Because after all a disappointment immediately arises when education does not change the students at all.

Corruption, Collusion and Nepotism are good examples of bad education change. Meanwhile, the attitude of maintaining the family system without resorting to nepotism is an example of a change in good education that must be maintained. The elites who are trapped into being the ultimate corrupt are educated people. They are smart because of the title. Such behavior actually occurs after the education he goes through. Without education it is impossible to get corruption up to billions of rupiah. And without education it is also impossible for people to behave positively in their world.

In contrast to positive behavior due to education. The sportsmanship of a lecturer towards students is a concrete example of a positive educational outcome. While the attitude of cheating and cunning, not wanting to admit shortcomings, and even covering them in every way to hide their shortcomings, is also a clear example of the results of poor education. Here the important problem is whether education is sufficient for change? The answer is short. It turned out that nothing was wrong with education. It is true that education is to change, but it is not true that education is forever changing the bad for the good. Education does not always turn bad into good, wrong into right.
