A. WORK PROFILE
B. ABOUT THE ORGANIZATION
Plan International is a development and humanitarian organization that advances children’s rights and equality for girls. Plan International strives for a just world, working together with children, young people, our supporters and partners. For 75 years, Plan International has built strong partnerships and now work in more than 70 countries. In Indonesia, Plan International started its work in 1969 and currently works in 7 provinces and sponsors more than 35,000 children.
Indonesia is projected to be the seventh largest economy by 2030 (McKinsey Global Institute, 2016). However, youth unemployment rates are at crisis level (53% of total unemployment) and young women are 17% less likely to work than young men. Indonesia needs an average of 3.2 million additional skilled workers per year, while budget allocations for non-formal (vocational) education are limited, leaving a significant number of youth untrained
. Sex ratio (comparison between male and female population) youth in 2016 is 102.38. This gender ratio indicates that the number of male youths is higher than that of young women and around 53 percent of the youth live in urban areas.
Techinasia Website stated that one of the unemployment problems caused by job-seeker lack of job information. This problem created the emerging of job portal digital platform that give out job vacancy information, both in local startup and overseas company. Furthermore, the biggest internet user number in Indonesia are in the productive age group. According to a survey of the Indonesia Internet Service Providers Association (APJII), 49,52% of the total internet users in Indonesia are people aged 19-34 and the third biggest group (16,68%) age 13-18 years old.
Overall, there are 132.7 million internet users or 50% from Indonesia population
. Surprisingly, total number of unique mobile users are 177.9 million that indicates a single internet user can use more than one mobile device to access internet. Another data shows that there are 130 million active social media users and 92.3% of them access it in mobile. In Indonesia, accessing social media is the most frequent activity when users going online using mobile device (Jakpat, 2016). Social media provides opportunities that have been simplified for individuals asking questions, requests, and presenting information (Thomas & Streib, 2003).
Specific about social media, Kompas Tekno (2014) stated that the growth of active users in Instagram (23%), which has been acquired by Facebook, is more rapid than Facebook (3%). Research by Taylor Nelson Sofres (2016) stated that 89% Instagram users in Indonesia are youth. Instagram is included in media sharing sites that allow people to upload, organize, and share various media material such as videos, audiovisuals, and photos with certain people or communities (Ngai, 2015). Media sharing sites were originally developed for individuals who wanted to share personal information or material with friends and others but gradually developed into sophisticated communication channels for organization to promote their products and corporate image through delivering organizational messages to stakeholder groups or communities
In the era of digitalization, Plan Indonesia has to be present in the digital channel in order to reach wider audience. One of the projects in Plan Indonesia- W4W! – aims to reach around 10,266 disadvantaged youth in Indonesia (75% women) to complete life skills training and market-driven technical training – online where possible, digitally enhanced, or in classroom where needed
. Over the 3 year W4W! timeframe at least 30%, or 3000 of the direct beneficiaries will enter decent employment, while 35,000
indirect beneficiaries at the global level will access the YES!DIGITAL Ecosystem’s for labor market information, work readiness, vocational services, and/or job-matching services.
