Shopee Enhances Filipino Talents 2

Shopee, the leading e-commerce platform in SEA and Taiwan, continues to empower the next generation of e-commerce leaders in the country through in-depth training and apprentice programs.

Reports show that e-commerce in the Philippines is estimated to reach $12 billion by 2025. To allow businesses to adapt and seize the opportunities that the growing e-commerce landscape offers, companies are constantly looking to hire and retain talents with an aim of making sure that their product offerings and solutions can meet the needs of customers.

To help Filipinos adapt to the new normal, Shopee offers a number of initiatives that aim to shape and improve Filipinos’ tech skills in various fields of e-commerce, including the following:

Global Leaders Program

Launched in 2018, the Global Leaders Program is a 2-year graduate program involving four 6-month local and overseas rotations, designed for highly-enthusiastic and ambitious young Filipino talents.

Participants will help drive Shopee’s campaigns and new initiatives by collaborating with both local and overseas teams. This brings eye-opening experiences and regional exposures while also allowing participants to contribute to the brand’s expansion across the region.

They will also receive dedicated mentorship from Shopee leaders and a structured learning and development program. Participants will graduate from the program with significant professional and personal growth, which will enable them to excel in their careers in the e-commerce industry.

Shopee Apprentice Program

The newly-launched internship program in PH is designed to build high-performing talents through high-impact projects, specialized learning and development training, and mentorships by Shopee leaders. It gives interns with tools and programs to launch integral initiatives, and enables them to start making a difference in e-commerce and the tech industry.

Accepted participants in the 2021 Shopee Aprentice Program will also receive mentorship from Shopee’s leaders, hold key roles in projects that will enhance business operations, and get a real taste of what life at Shopee is all about. Outstanding performers can also fast-track their paths to the Shopee Global Leaders Program’s selection round.

Shopee Code League

Launched last year, the Shopee Code League is an online coding competition that offers training workshops to both professionals and students across the region. Shopee’s tech teams specially designed the challenges with topics ranging from data analytics to data science. Participants must analyze the data set, draw insightful conclusions, and solve the problems in a specified amount of time.

The competition is open to pre-tertiary, undergraduates, post-graduates, and professionals from all fields keen to show off their coding skills. Interested coders can now apply for this year’s competition.

To ensure that high-potential Filipino talents have direct access to these programs, Shopee has reinforced its search for future e-commerce leaders with its career website and dedicated Facebook page. To know more, you may visit the following links:
