Abstract

In today’s world of work, the rate of competition among job-hunters is getting increasingly higher. In addition, some companies want to recruit human resources who have more work skills and knowledge in order to improve their quality and productivity. Both skills and knowledge are necessary regardless of the type of profession or work field and difficulties that should be conquered at work. Skills and knowledge may be observed in the score indicated in the GPA and programs one followed while she/ he was at college. This research is designed to understand correspondence analysis and apply the method to observe the closeness among variables of ITB alumni class of 2008, namely between the study program and the waiting period to get the first job. Research findings conclude that ITB’s Faculty of Industrial Technology has two study programs with the fastest period of waiting to get the first job (which is less than 2 months) while ITB’s Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences has two study programs with the longest waiting period (which is more than 12 months). Due to competitiveness at work and among companies, prospective employees who have good skills (which may be indicated by a higher GPA) are absolutely required. This research is expected to provide input for ITB in order to improve quality of its alumni and also to be taken into consideration by prospective college students in selecting which study program and university they will choose.
