Statistics Indonesia (BPS) released about unemployment in Indonesia in February 2020. The highest open unemployment rate (TPT) occurred in residents with Vocational High School (SMK) graduates, reaching 8.63%, followed by Diploma I/II/III and high school (SMA) levels, respectively 6.89% and 6.78%. This becomes very ironic because the aim of SMK is to produce competent graduates who are ready to work in the industrial world (DUDI). Therefore, SMK graduates are expected to have the competencies needed by DUDI. The purpose of this study was to determine soft skills competencies, including the ability to communicate, adapt and hard skills competencies, namely technical skills such as drawing, calculating costs and others required by the industry. This type of research is qualitative and the data collection technique is carried out by using questionnaires and focus group discussions with DUDI actors. Data analysis uses Affinity diagrams (K-J method), which makes it easier to analyze data from brainstorming. The results of this study can identify soft skill competencies: honest, thorough, able to solve, adaptable, able to work as a team, able to work under pressure while hard skill competencies: survey, mapping, drawing, structure and construction cost estimation, and project scheduling.
