5.0 CONCLUSION

As a conclusion, this task taught us as a student about the real life of how to face an real
interview. This task also help us on how to communicate with a potential employer, gain an
experience by conducting interviews with LS and non LS company. We found that this task
useful for students who will graduate soon. Communication skill is important especially to
student so they will learn on how to make an appointment. Self confident is also important on
how to propose the company they want to interview, on how they talk with the company so that
company found out this interview is interesting.

Besides, this usefull experience can help student to improve their self to be better in the
future. This task also taught us to be more patience when a company cancelled or reschedule the
appointment due to problem or work in their company. Lastly, the information that we have
gained from both companies have given us a resolute perspective; that we need to improve the
graduate’s quality in the future in order to meet the needs of the industry.
