Sep 9, 2015 – A fantastic day was held by all at the Caterpillar Plant in Batam on Saturday 4 September. A total of 75 students from SMKN 1, SMKN 5, and SMKN Muhammadiyah visited the factory and learnt about the world of business from a group of business professionals working at the factory. This was a truly outstanding opportunity for young people to understand more about the operations of a business entity including challenges faced and solutions found. The students attending this event remained incredibly focused throughout their engagement. This may be because their schools are located in the vicinity of the factory and many students were facing the prospect of finding work within the very near future; as they were in their last year of high school. Therefore, the JA Job Shadow experience had much relevance and the input from the Caterpillar volunteers was extremely pertinent given the important decisions to be made by students within the next few months.
