Currently, the introduction of digital capabilities is needed by many people. Moreover, the Covid-19 pandemic has had an impact on changing patterns of community activity, including driving digitization in almost all sectors.
“Now it’s the era of the GIG Economy where digital skills are needed by many people. This skill is one of the skills that is very prospective in the future,” said the Founder and CEO of Usaikarya.com Haitsam Shiddiq Siregar at the National Seminar at UIN Sunan Kalijaga, Yogyakarta.
In addition, the digitalization migration process that occurs nationally requires a lot of talent as a driving force. Because of this, Akhirkarya.com is here to help talent who are having difficulty starting to pursue digital skills as a new profession.
According to Digital Marketing Consultant & Mentor at Aruskarya.com Muhammad Darun, there are actually many talents out there who want to enter the digital world, but are still confused about where to start. This is also felt by many new graduates.
“Well, with the work that was initiated by Mas Haitsam, hopefully it can help anyone in providing structured direction and material from the experience of the expertise in their field,” he said.
