Growing up in Indonesia, Randy had long dreamed of becoming an engineer and shaping the future. After moving to Australia with his family, he decided to pursue that vision and enrolled in engineering at RMIT, embracing the challenges as readily as he did the opportunities.
Having found his niche, Randy wanted to take his learning and professional development to the next level through the WorldSkills Australia program. This big step not only helped build his confidence but also gave him a deeper understanding of the nuances of engineering in an international context – a valuable perspective for any student, but especially for one with aspirations like Randy’s.
The balance between university commitments and intense competition preparation has been tough, but it’s been a catalyst for personal development, particularly in managing time and prioritising tasks effectively.
Randy is now set on leveraging the skills and knowledge he’s acquired through WorldSkills – and particularly his experiences at Lyon 2024 – to secure a professional role, aiming to overcome the additional hurdles that international students often face in the job market.
“My objective is to maximise my learning during this competition, secure an internship or job using the skills acquired. However, my main goal is to win alongside my teammate.”
