Globe partners with Yondu in creating a program for young, aspiring IT professionals
Globe, in partnership with Yondu, recognized this need and created the Accelerated Cloud Cadetship Enablement Program (AC2E) program. "Globe is providing an opportunity for the next generation of IT professionals to be exposed in Cloud Technology with AC2E program at a young age," Globe Chief Information Officer Pebbles Manalang said. Globe and Yondu recognize that cloud technology will be a critical enabler of IR4.0 and is launching this initiative to ensure that the Philippines is able to deliver the talent needed to succeed in the coming industrial revolution. It can be recalled that Dr. Jose Ramon Albert, Senior Research Fellow of the Philippine Institute for Development Studies (PIDS) said during his talk at the recently concluded IR4.0 Summit, that people, business and government need to adapt to the disruption that will be brought about by IR4.0. Adapting to IR4.0 includes training the workforce with the new skills that will be needed to prepare for the future. An Overview of the AC2E program AC2E is a cloud capability build program that offers a holistic technical and professional development plan to aspiring young IT professionals for the duration of seven months. This premier program is the first of its kind and it aims to produce 25 highly skilled cloud practitioners who are deployment and future-ready. It will launch in November with a series of events until December. Official onboarding and start of the program will be on January 2020 until August 2020. Eligibility Fresh graduates (those who have graduated from March 2018 onwards) of a two-year associate course or four-year Bachelor’s course in Computer Science, IT, Engineering, Mathematics, or any STEM-related courses can apply for this program. Most importantly, aspiring applicants should have a high propensity to learn new things, be immensely curious, a team player, and willing to work in a hyper-fast environment. All qualified applicants will take an online technical assessment which will measure each applicant's technical competency. Out of all these applicants who will take the assessment, 100 qualifiers will be short-listed and will undergo paper screening. The top 50 will be chosen. The top 50 will attend a 2-day workshop and will be narrowed down to the top 30 who will continue with HR assessment and final deliberations. Selected applicants will be hired by Yondu Inc. as a probationary employee with a competitive salary. They will be reporting in the Globe office at BGC, Taguig for the duration of the program. For regional hires, a temporary relocation package for the duration of the program will be provided. Those who pass the selection process will receive an email and SMS confirming they have passed.
