Manila, Philippines – E-commerce platform Shopee in the Philippines is offering in-depth training and apprentice programs to Filipino e-commerce leaders to help them mold their technology skills essential to the growth of their e-commerce business.
With the e-commerce landscape expected to reach US$12B in value by 2025, businesses are constantly looking to hire and retain talents to ensure their product offerings and solutions can meet the needs of the consumers.
Shopee is currently offering three initiatives namely Shopee Apprentice Program, Global Leaders Program, and the Shopee Code League.
The Global Leaders Program, launched in 2018, is a 2-year graduate program consisting of four 6-month local and overseas rotations. Participants will help drive Shopee’s campaigns and new initiatives by working with local and overseas teams. Throughout the program, they are to receive mentorship from Shopee leaders and a structured learning and development program.
Meanwhile, the Shopee Apprentice Program is designed to mold high-performing e-commerce talents through high-impact projects, specialized learning & development training, and mentorships by Shopee leaders, to make them ready to make a difference in the e-commerce and tech industry.
Lastly, the Shopee Code League is an online coding competition that offers training workshops to students and professionals across the region. Shopee’s tech teams specially designed the challenges, ranging from data analytics to data science, where participants are challenged to analyze data sets, 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.
“As an e-commerce industry leader, it is not just a responsibility, but a privilege to support the next generation of Filipino talents. Shopee believes in the potential of every Filipino aspiring to work in e-commerce, and we want to strengthen their skills to help drive economic growth,” said Martin Yu, director at Shopee Philippines.
