Shopee is launching its first-ever Career Jumpstart Series, a curation of virtual open houses designed to train young tech leaders with career-building skills.
Martin Yu, Director at Shopee Philippines, said “We are committed to developing young talent – from the initial interview stage, all the way up to securing a job and furthering one’s career. Through the Shopee Career Jumpstart Series, we believe that we can not only help young talent fulfill their potential, but also help contribute to the Philippines’ growing digital economy. We look forward to creating even more opportunities to hone the skills of young Filipinos and support local digital growth.”
The Shopee Career Jumpstart Series aims to equip students and young Filipinos with the necessary skills to excel in the tech industry. Each seminar will be held virtually and will focus on relevant career-building topics such as resume writing, interview skills, and case interview mastery.
Students, as well as young professionals with less than two years of work experience, are invited to join and register for this event. Registrants are not required to be applicants of Shopee’s other key talent programs such as the Shopee Apprentice Program or the Global Leaders Program.
Apart from the Career Jumpstart Series, Shopee is also offering other programs and initiatives such as the Shopee Global Leaders Program. This is a 2-year graduate program consisting of four 6-month local and overseas rotations that is open to final-year students or young professionals with up to two years of working experience. On the other hand, the Shopee Apprentice Program is an internship program designed to expose interns to the e-commerce and digital finance industry and allow them to participate in the different end-to-end processes of large-scale projects and initiatives.
The Shopee Career Jumpstart Series will be spaced out across three seminars scheduled on April 5, 7, and 9, 2022. Those interested may apply here.
