Self-responsibility and confidence have been believed as two of many soft skills significant for workforce success and human capital development. Considered as important qualities of professionals, demands for these intangible personal attributes have increased significantly around the world and, thus, quality sustainable development and improvement for such qualities through various educations and trainings are necessary. This article put forwards 114 Indonesian vocational high school students’ mental impression of how industrial work practice had developed their self-responsibilities and confidence to compete for a job, to retain it and grow with it both personally and professionally. Employing descriptive statistics as a tool for data analysis and presentation, this study concluded that well-designed industrial work practice was indeed a necessity for preparing vocational high school students’ self-responsible and confident qualities, to survive at their future workplaces.
