The Key to Sustained E-Commerce Growth – Manila Newsletter
E-commerce platforms continue to strengthen their foothold in the global retail market through constant innovation and improvements in the overall online shopping experience for consumers. Along with the immense demand for quality products and services, there is also a great need for technological talent that will drive the growth of e-commerce locally and internationally. The value of e-commerce in Southeast Asia is expected to reach $ 132 billion by the end of 2021, and in five years the value of e-commerce in the Philippines will grow 3.8 times.
Shopee, the leading e-commerce platform in Southeast Asia and Taiwan, provides high-potential young talent with immersive training and in-depth mentorship through its Global Leaders (GLP) program.
The Shopee Global Leaders Program is a 2-year graduate program consisting of four 6-month local and overseas rotations designed for very enthusiastic and ambitious young Filipino talent. Participants will help drive Shopee’s campaigns and new initiatives by working with local and overseas teams. They will gain eye-opening experiences, regional exposure and contribute to Shopee’s expansion in the region. Exceptional final year students or recent graduates with up to 2 years of professional experience may qualify for GLP and will be part of a structured learning and development program. They will also benefit from dedicated mentoring from Shopee executives.
Martin Yu, Director of Shopee Philippines, said, “With the growing demand for technological talent, Shopee will continue to equip and train future technology leaders through various trainings and internships like the Global Leaders program. With this, Shopee invites those who are keen to learn to join the program. We look forward to the next group of participants who will greatly contribute to the future of e-commerce in the region and in the international landscape.
GLP attendees explained how they have gained significant professional and personal growth, which will help them excel in their careers in the e-commerce industry.
For Jan, BPL is a holistic learning experience. “I like the variety of rotations possible and the opportunity for a regional exhibition is definitely a bonus. The program definitely strengthens your business acumen and broadens your perspective on e-commerce as a whole. GLP is a great training ground to become a better problem solver. Not only can we analyze and solve real business problems, but we also have a lot of resources. Personally, I enjoy the GLP training and gatherings where we hear about GLP from other countries, ”explained Jan.
Lance, on the other hand, sees GLP as an informative learning experience that opened his eyes to the broader spectrum of the industry. “I’ve always been interested in technology and startups, especially startups that create a new business model and innovation based on a new perspective or a new set of values. I wanted to join GLP because I felt it was a great opportunity to develop key leadership and problem-solving skills, while being exposed to tech-related companies and the startup world, ”Lance added.
Jan and Lance are still currently enrolled in the program and see it as an opportunity to hone their skills and gain a better understanding of the industry. “If you’re looking for strategic exposure and hard-hitting work, apply to Shopee’s GLP. It is definitely a unique training experience that exposes you to highly qualified mentors, up to challenging and rewarding projects, ”explained Jan.
“If you’re interested and excited about roles that require business and problem-solving skills, GLP is a great choice. Find out about the program details on the Shopee website and if you’re feeling excited or curious about the rotations and challenges of ecommerce, you should give it a try, ”Lance explained.
