A program for young, aspiring IT professionals

The opportunities for innovations in today’s technological world call for qualified and driven people who will lead the Philippines’s shift to Industrial Revolution 4.0.

To ensure that the country has the talent to succeed in the coming industrial revolution, Globe, in partnership with Yondu, created the Accelerated Cloud Cadetship Enablement Program program. AC2E is a cloud capability build initiative that offers a holistic technical and professional development plan to aspiring young IT professionals.

“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,” said Pebbles Manalang, Globe chief information officer.

AC2E targets to produce 25 highly skilled cloud practitioners who are deployment and future-ready. The first-of-its-kind initiative will launch in November with a series of events until December. Official onboarding and start of the program will be in January 2020 until August 2020.

Fresh graduates from March 2018 onward 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 the program. 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 that will measure each applicant’s technical competency. One-hundred qualifiers will be short-listed and will undergo paper screening. The top 50 will be chosen, and will attend a two-day workshop. Applicants will then 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 e-mail and SMS.

An exciting, intensive, and rigorous program awaits selected cadets. They will develop technical skills through learning sessions and immersions, as well as leadership and professional skills—making for a holistic experience. They will also be mentored and coached by a pool of experts in the IT industry. At the end of the program, the cadets will have the opportunity to work for a high-performing organization and get certification/s in different cloud platforms.

The program is set to open numerous job opportunities for the cadets, particularly in the fields of architecture, operations, development and business. Examples of these roles include Enterprise Architect, Solutions Engineer, Cybersecurity Specialist, Infrastructure Operations, Application Developer, DevOps Engineer, Finance Analyst, and Cloud Finance Manager, to name a few.
