Story of Rafli Achieved His Dream Job Through BCA SYNRGY Academy

Jakarta, 11 May 2023 - Born into a humble family, Muhammad Rafli Adiansyah could only dream of pursuing a career in the digital sector. However, an unexpected encounter with BCA SYNRGY Academy has brought him closer to his dream job as a UI/UX designer.

Rafli completed his studies in Agribusiness major at Sultan Ageng Tirtayasa University in Serang, Banten, even though his dream was to work in the digital sector. The high cost of tuition in that field was the main reason Rafli compromised. However, the good news about BCA SYNRGY Academy reached Rafli in an unusual way.

"My journey in finding SYNRGY Academy was quite unique because I originally wanted to study IT but couldn't afford it. My father is working as an online motorcycle taxi driver (online ojek). One day, he came home with news about SYNRGY Academy. When I saw it, I was quite surprised and excited because it was something I had been dreaming of for a long time," recalled Rafli.

Participants in SYNRGY Academy receive various trainings to sharpen their skills, both in hard and soft skills. Thus, they are expected to master the necessary skills to enter the workplace, especially in the digital sector. After following this program, Rafli successfully had a chance to work as a UI/UX Designer at Narasi.

"At SYNRGY Academy, I received training that was in line with the major class I chose. What's interesting was, we were asked to collaborate in teams to work on a final project to create an application, so we not only learned theory but also put our knowledge into practice. Perhaps without the knowledge and mentorship I received at SYNRGY Academy, I wouldn't be in the position I am now," said Rafli.

BCA SYNRGY Academy is a training program in the digital technology field. This program offers several classes such as engineering, back-end engineering, front-end engineering, UI/UX design, and iOS engineering. These classes become options along with the growing demand of the digital industry today.

"At first, we thought twice because based on our experience in following other accelerator boot camps, the program took up quite a bit of time. Meanwhile, we have to work with a tight schedule. However, the SYNRGY Accelerator curriculum is designed to accommodate the specific needs of each startup with flexible time. We are focused on networking and business matching until we can finally collaborate with the BCA ecosystem," said COO Sudono Salim.
