Selecting Your 1st Career as Fresh Graduates

I write this as requested by one of my friend from Student x CEO, hope it helps!
One of the biggest challenge after you graduate from college is selecting your 1st career. It’s great that nowadays we have more career options compare to 5-10 years ago, however, it’s also what make us harder to decide.
Here are my tips to help you selecting the 1st career:
1. Know Your Career Goals
Where do you see yourself in your career in the long term? Everyone have their own career goals: to be a president director, BUMN leader, digital marketing expert, social business owner, etc.
If you have goals, it will be easier for you to decide where to start your career. For example, if your goals is to be a digital marketing expert, then it’s good for you to start a career in marketing related area.

What if you are not sure with your career goals yet? No problem, you can start a career in an area that you loved or you’re good at. First few years of your career is a great time for exploration. You will find…

LIKE (Audio)

Finally, my 1st original song in 2017! The title is simply titled "LIKE". It's about being in love with someone, specifically her Instagram pictures, and you cannot resist but to click like. Sounds familiar, right? It sounds bit different with my other songs - I crafted the instrumental with inspiration from The Weeknd beats. Well, hope you enjoy the song!

How I Explained Recruitment to 5th Graders

Note: I also published this article on LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/how-i-explained-recruitment-5th-graders-aldi-ramadhika

Last week I joined a social movement called Kelas Inspirasi (Inspiration Class). It’s a movement where professionals go to marginal elementary school to share about their professions to inspire and motivate the students. Various professionals voluntarily participated in this movement, such as police, chef, architect, journalist, dancer, judge, etc – and of course, me, an HR professional.
As an HR whose one of the jobs is to recruit talent, I decided to share about recruitment. At first, I feel it’s kinda hard to explain since the concept is a bit complicated and not common for kids. After a few thoughts and discussion with friends, I had ideas to simplify the explanation.
Here’s how I did it.

OTW (On The Way) - Aldi x Jasmine

Setelah video #GOOD di Oktober lalu, saya mulai mencari ide untuk membuat lagu bertema #GOOD lainnya. Setelah sesi brainstorming ide bersama Jasmine dan beberapa rekan saya, ada banyak ide bermunculan, dan akhirnya kita memilih 'smart driving' sebagai topik lagu berikutnya. Tema 'smart driving' memang terdengar serius tapi kita mencoba untuk memberikan sudut yang fun dari tema ini.

Saya tidak started from scratch untuk lagu ini, sebenarnya lagu ini adalah remake lagu Bosan yang dinyanyikan band saya, One O One. Masih menggunakan instrumental yang sama, I just transformed the lyrics and made it feels like new.

Singkat kata, beberapa minggu kemudian setelah menyempatkan menulis lirik dan rekaman di tengah kesibukan (I wrote the lyrics in the airport during business trip), lagu ini akhirnya rampung. You can enjoy the audio version below - music video coming soon :)

2016: A Great Year for Music. Here's My Favorites.

Apa yang membedakan 2016 dengan tahun sebelumnya?
Buat saya, salahsatu yang membedakan tahun ini dibandingkan 2-3 tahun ke belakang adalah musiknya. Sepanjang tahun ini saya disuguhi banyak musik keren. Lebih banyak dari sebelumnya. Mulai dari kembalinya para senior seperti Beyonce, Coldplay, Kanye West, Rihanna; para bintang seperti Ariana Grande, Fifth Harmony, Drake, The Chainsmokers; hingga pendatang baru seperti Twenty One Pilots, Zara Larrson, DNCE, dan G Eazy. Itu pun baru beberapa nama yang saya tulis. Awesome, right?
As always, di penghujung tahun ini saya membuat list 10 lagu favorit saya di 2016. List ini diramu via tools LIGALAGU yang saya buat di 2015. Here's my top 10:
1. Twenty One Pilots - Stressed Out

Memasuki 2016 saya ngga tahu siapa itu Twenty One Pilots dan di penghujung 2016 lagu mereka menjadi #1 di list ini. Been a long time melihat band alternative rock dengan sentuhan rap. Unique sound, catchy hook, nice rap, good lyrics - lebih dari cukup untuk untuk mem…

One O One - Kuingin Kamu (2016 Version)

Apa yang dilakukan lima orang mahasiswa tingkat satu saat galau? Jawabannya bisa beragam, mulai dari curhat, minum-minum, sampai traveling. Well, karena grup hiphop saya alias One O One itu anti-mainstream, yang kita lakukan di 2008 lalu adalah membuat lagu. Yes, somehow kegalauan adalah sumber ide. Dari kegalauan saat itu kita menghasilkan lagu rap bertajuk "Kuingin Kamu".
Delapan tahun kemudian, beberapa minggu lalu, saya dan dua member One O One (Priza a.k.a DC One B dan Krisha a.k.a Kriz) me-remix ulang lagu ini dengan sentuhan pop-techno. Hasilnya, lagu ini menjadi lebih modern dan less galau ;)
Hope you enjoy the song!
