What it’s like being a Shopee intern, according to Shopee interns

MANILA, JUNE 3, 2022 – As the e-commerce industry continues to grow, so does the need for
tech talent that can help support the industry’s growth. Shopee, the leading e-commerce
platform in Southeast Asia and Taiwan, recognizes this need and aims to help develop young
professionals to produce future industry leaders through its internship program.

Shopee’s internship program is a 3 to 5 month program that introduces eligible undergraduates
to the e-commerce industry and immerses them into the fast-paced sector. Shopee interns are
provided with opportunities to get firsthand experience working on nation-wide projects and
campaigns, as they collaborate with their teammates and supervisors. Shopee also provides
resources and training for interns to grow and learn during this period. This includes weekly
Learning & Organizational Development classes, opportunities to shadow their supervisors, and
integration in employee engagement events.

Karen Perez, Shopee Philippines Head of People, said “Shopee will continue to cultivate
talent with its vibrant and collaborative working environment. Life at Shopee is about making
sure that everyone has the best opportunities presented to them, and that they learn and upskill
themselves with real-world training.”

Three Shopee interns shared what being an intern for Shopee is like.

A unique internship program
Alli, an intern under Shopee’s marketing team, shared that
one of the defining characteristics of a Shopee internship is
how interns are given the opportunity to directly contribute to
the content produced by the team. “At Shopee, we’re trusted
as if we are full time employees. My supervisors give me
opportunities to take on big tasks. It truly is a unique
experience in that we are given hands-on work where you’re
really involved in the entire process—from brainstorming to
the actual execution of the projects. You get to pitch your own ideas, make decisions, and
maximize your own potential.”

A welcoming and collaborative culture
Mika, an intern working with the People team, really liked
the culture at Shopee, where she and her fellow interns felt
like they were part of the Shopee Family. “Even when I was
still a new intern, I already felt as if I had been here for quite
some time. It’s very easy to get along with everyone here,
and to get my message across even during meetings,
especially because Shopee’s team guides you every step of
the way. Even if we’re just interns, we’re also empowered to
speak our minds and contribute ideas.”

An engaging learning experience
Meanwhile Jewel, an intern for Shopee’s Marketing team,
said that he was able to hone his skills through the
opportunities Shopee provides. “I’m always given the
chance to learn through the tasks that I’m given, and I’m
able to do my best and overcome any challenges thanks to
the guidance of my team. I’ve picked up new skills
here—for example, I’m able to write better and manage my
time well. My supervisors ensure I have all the tools and
resources I need to do my best. They’ll teach you

everything you need to know, and even then there’s still so much to learn from Shopee.”

Alli, Mika, and Jewel believe that talents who are interested in joining Shopee’s internship
program can expect both personal and professional growth. “Being part of Shopee really allows
you to believe in yourself and your capabilities, as you continuously grow and learn” Mika

For young Filipinos who are open to learning and want to develop their potential, working for
