Based on the Central Bureau of Statistics in February 2022, the open unemployment rate for university graduates is 884,769 people. One of the causes of this phenomenon is the gap between the quality of human resources and the competencies required by the company. As a first step in dealing with the issue of university graduate unemployment, Universitas Brawijaya, especially the Faculty of Administrative Sciences, provides four internship program schemes, which aim to train students' skills and abilities before entering the real world of work.
