The Shopee Apprentice Program is designed to develop young tech talents into leaders through various projects, learning and development training, and mentorships led by Shopee leaders.
Participants of the apprentice program highlight their experiences with professionals that helped them jumpstart their career in the e-commerce industry.
For Kyla, the program was an enriching experience. With her stint with the Shopee Business Intelligence Team, she was able to create end-to-end training portals thanks to a specialization in data science and analytics with advanced coding skills. “Even though the entire program was held virtually, Shopee translated their work culture online which is a great factor in my whole experience as an apprentice. I learned a lot from my mentors and also improved my skills in terms of presentation, time management, and communication. The program encouraged me to step up and be more confident to drive better results with what I do. I am glad a lot of people supported me throughout my whole Shopee journey,” Kyla shared.
Lance is another participant in the program. His experience was eye-opening, improved his problem-solving skills, and helped him understand the industry better. He worked with the People Team and displayed exemplary standing not only when it comes to his studies but also with his work at Shopee. “With Shopee, I learned how to look at a multifaceted problem, break it down into its constituent parts, and build it back together to form a comprehensive, results-driven strategy. With this mindset, I was able to drive concrete impact by implementing workable solutions that will help drive the business forward.”
After finishing the program, Kyla highly recommends other individuals to check out the apprentice program for their own growth and development. “For those who want a career in e-commerce and tech, the Shopee Apprentice Program can definitely equip you with the necessary skills through their mentorships, training, and projects. You can definitely drive your own growth as well as bring value and positive impact to Shopee through this internship. If you are up for a challenge to do meaningful work, the Shopee Apprentice Program might just be for you,” Kyla shared.
