Smart, sociable, commitment, confident, and humble. Those are the pack of criteria needed to represent BINUS in various companies. Since 2016, BINUS Career has been delegating the best students to represent BINUS in external parties, they are called BINUS Career Ambassador.
Earlier on December 5, 2018, BINUS Career held the grand final of BINUS Career Ambassador 2018 in Anggrek Campus Auditorium. BNEC was invited and we proudly attended the invitation with two of our family, Tania and Patrick, became part of the chosen candidates. In the grand final, there were 16 candidates consisted of 8 women and 8 men which later on a pair would be chosen as BINUS Career Ambassador 2018. The show started with all the candidates walking around the stages and giving some introduction. After that, the stage is emptied and the crew was busy setting up the tools.
After a few minutes, the candidates started to show their talents. They showed different kind of talents, from singing, poems reading, dancing, and playing musical instruments. Tania, one of the candidates and part of BNEC family, sang a few songs beautifully. On the other hand, Patrick sang a song nicely while playing a guitar. Applause and cheering were heard throughout the venue along with amazing performances. After showing such great talents, the candidates went back to the backstage to change their outfits. Not long after that, they lined up again on the stage.
The most exciting part is yet to come, when the MC announced three pairs of candidates as the top six. Afterward, those candidates were given questions regarding the ambassador program by the judges. The six candidates answered the questions clearly, and all 16 candidates were allowed to go to the backstage while the judges were discussing about who should be the winners. Not wanting to make the audience to wait, BINUS Career prepared a performance by Nathanael. He is a student in BINUS and he has a nice voice, and he sang a few songs while waiting for the result to come out. Besides Nathanael, the 2016 BINUS Career Ambassador, Mr. Jacky, also performed a few songs to entertain the audience.
And now, it is time for the MC to deliver the result of the judges’ discussion. The previous ambassadors were called to go on stage to put the ambassador slings to the winners. The background music, the pauses, and the ambiance were good enough to make the candidates' hands wet! The six candidates looked very nervous as they hoped to receive the sling. Finally, two candidates received the slings! Congratulations to Mr. Patrick and Ms. Poppy for receiving the BINUS Career Ambassador 2018 title!
Beside the winner of BINUS Career Ambassador, there were also a pair of second runner-up, a pair of first runner-up, and an award for the best group. After the winner has been decided, invited ambassadors from different universities, Abang None Jakarta, and the previous winners of BINUS Career Ambassador were invited to go on stage to take a picture together. Lastly, the MC bid congratulations to the winners and farewell to the audiences.
As one of the student organizations at BINUS University, we want to say thank you for inviting us to witness this moment. Once again, congratulations to the 2018 BINUS Career Ambassadors! We really hope you can do a great job!
