A first job is not only about the paycheck or the experience to be added to a resume.
LinkedIn Asia Pacific managing director Olivier Legrand said first job mattered as they provided an opportunity for fresh graduates to build networks, get access to their dream job and meet their first mentor.
Realizing its importance, the business and employment-oriented social networking platform launched a program called LinkedIn Dream Jobs on Tuesday.
The program, which will run until the end of May, involves nine companies, namely Home Credit Indonesia, Procter and Gamble, Grab, Ogilvy and Mather Indonesia, Bank Danamon, Reckitt Benckiser, Habitat for Humanity, Kalbe Pharmaceuticals and Accenture.

Legrand said the platform's vision was to create economic opportunities for every member of the workforce, adding that the program showed what LinkedIn did and what the company was all about.
LinkedIn currently has 9 million members in Indonesia and 600,000 of them are students. (kes)
