Job opportunities for 1,500 people in the Mandalika Special Economic Zone starting 2020 will be difficult to be covered locally
Job opportunities for 1,500 people in the Mandalika Special Economic Zone starting 2020 will be difficult to be covered only from the graduates of the Lombok Tourism Polytechnic. This was stated by Farid Said, Deputy Director I of the Tourism Polytechnic of Lombok.
From now on, it is necessary to think about the best solution. “One of solutions is to hold short education and training course, just two months,” Farid suggested, last April 24th.
The institution is ready to be the front guard to provide knowledge and experiences about hotels, restaurants to tourism development in general. “There are only 80 students graduating this year. Next year, 100 people, “he explained. So only 180 people from the Lombok Tourism Polytechnic will be ready in 2020.
That means, there is still a shortage of 1,320 people. It can be fulfilled by other universities, but it does not rule out the possibility of lack. He did not want the opportunity to be captured by residents outside the province of West Nusa Tenggara. “This is what I don’t know,” he sarcastically related to the government’s readiness.
The point in Farid’s message: it is time for the government to talk about tactical aspect, not conceptual anymore. “We must make sure to be ready, because cannot only become spectators,” said Head of Central Lombok Culture and Tourism Agency, H. L Muhammad Putrie, on a separate occasion.
Residents of the Mandalika area, Putrie said, are now starting to think about it. The proof is the increasing number of parents who send their children to college. “This is an opportunity we cannot waste,” he said.
So for those who want to contribute to the successful of Indonesia MotoGP in Mandalika 2021, you need to prepare yourself and stay tune to the update, especially on the job vacancies.
