What have you been doing since leaving Exeter, and what are you doing now?

Since I left Exeter, I am working professionally as an employee at one of the biggest company in Indonesia.

Why did you choose this career? And what do you enjoy most about your work?

I wanted to get the broadest view as possible in another career opportunity from before, and now, with the current job I get to know different people with different background through project meetings and operational problems, and learn different business processes which could possibly enrich me in career.

Please tell us if you were a member of any societies, groups or sports clubs?

Yes. EUTC – The Tennis Club.

What did you enjoy most about your programme and what was the biggest highlight?

My postgrad study taught me some fundamentals on what I am doing at the moment, and the environment in Exeter helped me gain confidence on communicating with people, especially when I, myself, is an international student.

What did you enjoy most about studying here?

The international environment. The relaxing green gardens and small forests in the Streatham Campus. The friendly people of Exeter both in university and in the city.

Why did you choose to study at Exeter?

By 2016, Exeter was the top 10 university in the UK, and the programme I took suits me.

What skills and experiences have been most useful for your career?

Self-openness to another opportunity and learning experience, anywhere anytime, from everyone. Through my studies in Exeter, I also learn that discipline is one of the most important lesson through dissertation.

What advice would you give to a current student who wishes to pursue your career?

Keep learning. Keep exploring. Idealism is needed, but it should be placed in the right moment.

What are your plans for the future?

I will keep learning deeper on what I do for now, and if possible, get some other experience from what I do outside Indonesia.
