On 29 April, the Office of Career Development together with Shopee co-organized a hybrid (virtual and physical) sharing of Shopee Global Leaders Program and Apprentice Program recruitment programs.
Starting off the session, Shopee’s People Team staff Mr. Chang, provided the students with the background of Shopee, and how it started. Shopee is an e-commerce platform under the SEA Group. The SEA Group was established in 2009, with its headquarters in Singapore. In 2015, Shopee was launched in Singapore, Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, Taiwan, Vietnam, and the Philippines.
After a quick introduction of Shopee, Mr. Chang moved the sharing towards the main focus of today, Shopee’s recruitment programs. First up, is the Global Leaders Program . Shopee's Global Leaders Program is a 2-year program for graduate talents, comprising four 6-month rotations in different business functions. Graduates will experience strong professional growth from structured training, and gain critical skills to take up leadership roles in Shopee at the end of the program.
The next recruitment program was the Shopee Apprentice Program . The Shopee Apprentice Program is an internship program specially designed to accelerate and develop high-performing talents through high-impact projects, specialized learning & development training, and mentorships led by Shopee leaders.
For Shopee’s recruitment sharing, we have also invited one of NSYSU’s alumni, Yuan-Kai Lee Vincent, to share with us his experience in Shopee. Those who have participated in the alumni sharing “Joining your desired company is no longer just a dream? ” organized by the Office of Career Development back in March, should find Vincent familiar. Graduated from NSYSU’s College of Management, Global Human Resource English MBA program, Vincent joined Shopee in 2021, helming the HR Business Partner position. Focused on the main topic of Shopee’s recruitment program, Vincent started his sharing with a quick introduction to Shopee’s organization structure and his area of work, before moving on to the main structure of his sharing, how to prepare your CV and interview tips.
When you are preparing your resume, you may consider going to Google to look at some of the CV samples. Through the samples, you can identify what are some of the information that is crucial for your CV, such as personal achievement, internship experience, school clubs and events that you have participated in or organized, competitions that you have joined, and the skills that you have, etc. Your CV should also be customized based on the position that you are applying for, instead of using one template for all jobs.
As for interview opportunities, apart from the traditional ways of job search like the company website and recruitment platforms, you should also expand your network by attending career seminars and establishing connections with industry professionals. Such seminars are a good way to increase your chance of landing a job. When interviewing for a job, specifically for the self-introduction, you should make good use of this airtime to find a connection between you and the job, such as what are the common traits, skills, experiences, etc, that you share with the job that you are applying for. All of these would help the interviewers know that you are the right person that they are looking for.
Towards the end of the sharing, Vincent addressed some of the questions that were raised by the students during the Q&A segment. One of the questions that we directed to Vincent was “how can students better prepare themselves while they are schooling”. Regarding this question, Vincent emphasized the importance of attending career seminars. Apart from knowing more about the job that you are interested in through the seminar, you can also find out what are the skills that the companies are looking for. After knowing more, you can start to look out for training or courses that would equip you with the required competencies. On top of attending career seminars, you should also make good use of the time during your holidays to look out for internship opportunities. Through internships, you will be able to learn more about your dream job, depending on your performance during the internship period, you may even have the chance of getting a full-time job offer after the end of your internship.
We would also like to take this chance to thank Shopee for joining us to share with the students on the career opportunities at Shopee.
GHRM MBA and IBMBA attract students from all across the globe and from all walks of life. Many of our alumni are excelling in their chosen fields and today we share the story of our GHRM MBA alumnus Robin Slootmaker.
Getting To Know Robin Slootmaker
Robin grew up in the sunny state of California and completed his bachelor's from the state of Washington. He owned a printing business for a few years and wound up traveling to Taiwan, fell in love with it, and since then, he has made the tiny island his home for more than a decade. Robin remarks, “I came to visit Taiwan and I fell in love with the place, I just can’t seem to leave.”
Robin is currently working as an International Business Development Manager at Biotek Environmental Science Ltd-a company that manufactures disinfection equipment for applications from pharmaceutical factories to chain restaurants to household appliances. His job entails a lot of responsibilities and covers everything from sales, account management, contract negotiation, and market strategy to regulatory compliance.
Time At GHRM MBA-Fond Memories And Lessons
After working in Shanghai for a brief period, Robin returned to Taiwan and wanted to expand his opportunities and further hone his business acumen. After one of his friends recommended 中山大學, Robin got in touch with Cindy and applied for the GHRM MBA program. Reminiscing about his GHRM MBA days, Robin fondly remembers Professor David McConville’s classes and the way he impacted students to think more broadly. In fact, Robin still applies some of the tools and lessons he learned from Professor David’s class in his daily work.
Robins's time at GHRM MBA was full of unforgettable memories and invaluable career and life lessons. When asked about the most valuable thing he learned from the program, Robin shares, “The most valuable thing I learned in a general sense, the degree gave me a good foundation for cross-cultural and international work environments.”
Robin credits GHRM MBA for opening doors for him and for helping him forge a professional career in Taiwan.
Falling In Love With Taiwan-A Country Unlike Any other
According to Robin, Taiwan is unlike any other place. It’s the elusive combination of safety, opportunity, stability, and fun that made Robin fall in love with the island. According to Robin, “Nowhere else I have lived or visited offers such safety, opportunity, stability, and fun. It is cutting-edge advanced yet rough around the edges with that island feel. It has the modern metropolis, tropical beaches, and beautiful mountains all in a nice, albeit not neat, package. People here are welcoming, kind, and go beyond to be helpful. It’s an extremely unique place.”
For the current students, Robin advises them to be patient and open and to challenge themselves and others' perceptions.
College of Management is proud of Robin’s achievements and delighted to know that he’s having a great time in Taiwan. We wish him the very best and we are sure he’ll achieve even greater things in the near future. GHRM MBA will continue to share our alumni’s inspiring stories in the days to come.

Although the class was conducted online on Friday, May 13th, 2022, the guest lecture was very successful and effective. Especially, students of the accounting class proactively participated in a very informative guest lecturer.
During his career, Mr. Richard experience different positions in big corporations and be a member of some professional associations and public committees such as the Sustainability Committee of the Hong Kong Institute of Certified Public Accountants (from 2014-to 2021), the Education Committee of the Hong Kong Institute of Chartered Secretaries (since 2017, the Sustainability Committee of the Hong Kong Institute of Certified Public Accountants (since 2014).
With a very clear categorization of accountants’ careers into three stages, including the periods from 1987 to 2010, from 2011 to 2022, and from 2023 and onwards, Mr. Richard summarized an overview of career development in accounting field along with the major incidents happened in the past three decades such as the Black Monday in 1987, Asian Financial crisis in 1997, and COVID-19 pandemic in 2019-2020, Russia Invasion of Ukraine in 2022. Besides, he also presents the definition of accountants from different perspectives with the main majors and responsibilities over time with the relevant professional resources.
Especially, in the prospect of the accounting career in the future, the guest speaker analyzed the prediction and impacts of political events on the accounting profession such as the end of the US-China trade war, the end of the Russian invasion, Taiwan’s 2030 goal to become a bilingual nation, the Aging population will not be a problem anymore, 2050 Net Zero pledge, 2.4 degrees Celsius of global warming by the end of this century. Students can study and consider the organic relationship of accounting in linkage to multiple aspects of our life.
To sum up the guest lecture, Mr. Richards presents several suggestions for students who plan to pursue this profession journey including CPA is a “professional” designation for accountants, recognized by laws; Accountants survive the up and down in the business cycle, and there are many specialized areas within the accountancy profession; A good foundation for a first career; many accountants develop a second career in senior executive management positions; Be prepared to get updated and develop multiple skill sets such as IT, risk management, and sustainability knowledge to keep up with the global competitive environment; Future Accountants must handle both “Financial” and “Non-financial”!
During the Q&A part, both professor, guest speaker, and students enjoyed sharing and discussing the potential and challenges of being an accountant in an international working environment such as how to find the starting point, the benefits, as well as the job tenure and turnover.
On May 6th, IBMBA & GHRM MBA held an online orientation event. At the local students' orientation, alumni Justin (唐學智； IBMBA 105), the event's host, begins the event that studying in the International Programs enables students to win a ticket to explore everything.
It is such a pleasure to have Program Director Sher and Deputy Director Kim deliver the greeting speech. Director Sher mentioned International Programs provide various resources for students to exercise. Students from diverse studying backgrounds have opportunities to transform themselves here in his data analytics lab. Even though the student majored in English could be a data analyst afterward. In addition, Deputy Director Kim mentioned that after three years in the International Programs is happy to meet students studying here. She will teach lectures including International Marketing, Research Methodology, and Seminar in Business Management next semester. She looks forward to seeing students in her courses.
Later on, Alumni Patrick (劉家誠； IBMBA 105) introduced the IBMBA program. He pointed out that maintaining harmonious relationships with classmates is vital because they were who helped him to get employed in two jobs. Some to-be students are curious about dual degree and exchange program applications; all alumni pointed out that getting as high a TOEFL or IELTS score as possible makes the application process smoother.
Alumni Amber (許亞庭； IBMBA 105) encouraged first-year students to network with others in the alumni sharing section. For instance, she got an internship offer based on social connections, in the same vein as Patrick mentioned that classmates in the International Programs have a special relationship with us. As for suggestions for choosing the thesis advisor, she recommended we consider our thesis's aim and meet with some professors before deciding. Her extracurricular experience of being a member of the Student Association improves her organizational ability, which is also applicable in her current career.
Alumni Felix Chen (陳柏村； IBMBA 106) found it fascinating to meet different people studying here and listen to their exciting life experiences. To properly exercise the resources at NSYSU, he chose to exchange the university in Japan to strengthen his language skills. It sharpens his Japanese proficiency by studying lectures taught in Japanese. After graduating from IBMBA, he started his business, Der ZÖMAR, in 2019. “Nothing is more important than courage to start the business.”
Gary (袁子修； IBMBA 108) shared his experiences participating in the Hult Prize business competition. Studying at IBMBA sharpens his slides producing skills. Moreover, his team got first place at Air Liquide Summer School. The cross-cultural communication ability and teamwork of group projects trained at IBMBA made him stand out during the event. He interns at Air Liquide Manager Office, which benefits him to network with higher positions managers to learn from them. He encourages students to achieve their limits by taking challenging courses.
From our beloved alumni, Justin, Patrick, Amber, Felix, and Gary’s sharing, students are better off experiencing contrasting things to broaden their horizons. All in all, the time of being a student is a precious period for trial and error. We are better off trying as many items as we can and learning lessons whether these trials are successful or not.
【Career Development】Career Consultation Reflection by GHRM MBA student Andy Teo with Career Consultant Ms. Wanda Yang
In response to globalization and the pursuit of academic-industrial cooperation, the College of Management, National Sun Yat-sen University, established its Office of Career Development (OCD) in 2020, aimed at equipping students with competencies in business ethics, global economic trends, and career development. The office is working relentlessly to collaborate with NSYSU alumni and offer one-on-one online consultancy services to both local and international students in the College of Management, NSYSU.
If you have attended events organized by the Office of Career Development (OCD), especially those sharing from the alumni, you should often hear them mention “All of you should make good use of the resources provided by NSYSU. Regardless of whether it is the scholarships for an overseas exchange program, sharing from industry experts, career consultation, resume review, etc. All these resources can effectively enhance your student life and even improve your chance of landing a good job once you graduate”. Upon hearing this and pondering about how I could get myself an internship at a prestigious company, this April, I decided to sign up for the career consultation service to see if there is anything I could do better to improve my chances.
I believe that many students who have not participated in any of the career consultation sessions might more or less feel intimidated. Just one quick look at the career consultants’ background and you would get the jitter. But fret not, today I am here to share with you my experience and what you could do to prepare yourself for the session.
To begin with, interested students can head over to the OCD’s career consultation website. On the page, you can have an overall view of the career consultants’ background and their areas of specialty. For students who are unsure of what career path to pursue upon graduation, you can make use of this chance to find out more about the respective fields that you might be interested in from the career consultants. Once you identified the consultant, you can head over to theregistration page to select the most suitable timing (do note that you will need to first log in with your NSYSU student account). Alternatively, you can also seek OCD’s assistant to register for the session.
Prior to registration, students are required to prepare 2 sets of questions for the consultation service. You must be thinking, “Hold on a minute, what? Two sets of questions? What should I ask?!”. Like many of you, I too felt lost and was afraid of asking “stupid questions”. But then again, sharing with you one of my favorite quotes of all time “There is no such thing as a stupid question if it's sincere. Better to ask and risk appearing stupid than to continue on your ignorant way and make a stupid mistake”. So, simply ask away! Taking myself as an example, as someone who has a strong interest in HR, when I saw Ms. Wanda’s profile, I knew that she would be the right person to consult with. As for the two sets of questions, I am more than willing to share with you what I have asked but do note that the questions should be unique to you and based on what you wish to achieve from the consultation. These questions should serve as a reference, and you need not use the same questions.
For my first question: I would like to seek your view on what the future of HR would be like, and what skillsets should the future HR professionals possess. Based on this question, Ms. Wanda shared that “The future of HR would differ greatly from the past and even the current HR practice. Technology has not just brought about advancements but also disruptions. Many of the traditional HR practices would be replaced with technologies like Artificial Intelligent (AI). Take recruitment, for example, a part of the current recruitment process like resume screening can be done by AI. As such, knowing how to program AI would be a valuable skill set in the future.”.
For my second question: If I wish to jump to a new industry or travel abroad to work as an HR professional, how can I prepare myself to increase my chance of having such an opportunity? Regarding this, Ms. Wanda provided the following advice:
1. Mastering different languages would be a huge plus point, especially the language of the country that you intend to work in.
2. Read more about the industry that you are interested in and look out for skills that are crucial for the future. Once you have identified them, start to upgrade yourself by attending courses or training workshops.
3. Make good use of social media platforms like LinkedIn. Such platforms are good at widening your view and can serve as a bridge to link you and the multinational corporations, especially those companies in the west, for potential job opportunities.
Within the short span of 30 minutes, I truly felt that I have benefited greatly. Upon hearing that I am looking for a summer internship, to my surprise, Ms. Wanda offered to pass my CV to her HR department in Yulon Nissan Motor, to discuss further. Furthermore, what humbled me the most was that even after the consultation, Ms. Wanda, in her limited free time, sent me an email with a link to a podcast that she previously participated in, talking about HR-related matters. I bet even you are as surprised as to how far Ms. Wanda was willing to go for a student that she only met for 30 minutes. All I can say is that what our alumni shared at the beginning of the article was true. Do make good use of the resources that are provided by the school or the College of Management, and grab hold of any opportunities to network with the alumni. Don’t be on the losing end by missing out on such great opportunities.

《110-2 Program Event》Now is the time to Study and Work in Austria: 20th May 2022 Austria Online Information session
Austria is considered one of the best countries in Europe to live in, due to its rich culture and mesmerizing natural beauty. In order to make students aware of the available opportunities in Austria, the Office of Career Development, College of Management, organized a Virtual Information session on May 20th, 2022, for students to learn more about studying and working in Austria. The key speakers of the session were Roland Rudorfer, Director, Austria Office Taipei; Daniel Aschauer, an alumnus of IBMBA currently working as a Deputy General Manager, Anton Paar Taiwan and Sarah Chiang, IBMBA alumnas who working in Austria as a Project Manager at Re-Teck Asset Management GmbH.
To give a brief introduction to Austria, Mr. Roland, shared some facts and figures about the country. Austria lies in the heart of Europe with a population of around 9 million people and the language most spoken in the country being German. It has a similar government structure to Taiwan and has a rich history of kings and queens. It is one of the 14 richest countries in the world and therefore has a very high standard of living. Austria is also home to some world-famous companies like Porsche, Swarovski, and Red Bull.
Working in Austria, as explained by Mr. Roland, includes excellent social welfare practices like Competitive wage systems, participation in Workers’ unions, and various types of insurance. The monthly salary is paid 14 times a year, and the highest paid jobs are in the Chemical and Oil processing industry, IT and Internet, banking, and so on. Project Managers, Lawyers, and controllers generally have the highest wages in Austria. Living cost, on the other hand, is comparatively more affordable than in countries like Hong Kong, Tokyo, or Singapore. Mr. Roland also shared some informative websites, like workinaustria.com which can be accessed by everyone to look for suitable job opportunities in Austria.
Regarding studying in Austria, there are 22 public universities, 16 private universities, and 21 Universities of Applied Science offering courses in a broad spectrum of academic subjects as well as professional disciples. To encourage international students, there are also multiple grants and scholarships available. Mr. Roland concluded by sharing a short video with a hidden mistake for students to guess, and Frank Lin from GHRM MBA 1st year guessed correctly and won a copy of a book about Austria.
Mr. Daniel Aschauer shared his experience of being part of the Global ACT Master Program which enabled him to study in Canada, Austria, and Taiwan. The Program provided him with the exposure to studying and living in different cultures and gave him an opportunity to meet people from diverse backgrounds. He encouraged students to focus on networking and gaining experience through internships whenever possible. He shared the differences in work culture between Taiwan and Austria and shared some valuable job searching tips. Having a career goal in mind is essential to finding jobs that fit your goals and he expressed how one should experience working in different fields to narrow what one likes or dislikes.
For a foreigner looking for work in Austria, it can be quite difficult but not impossible as shared by Ms. Sarah Chiang. To guide the students, she shared some valuable tips for students hoping to work in Austria. She shared that one should identify their strengths and weaknesses before applying for jobs and if possible have their peers review and edit the resumes to make it more full proof. She also highlighted the importance of networking and being up to date with visas and other official information to apply for jobs effectively. The interview process in Austria can take up to a month and is very comprehensive. The key to shining in the interviews is to portray your best personality and be confident in yourself.
The session was concluded after a quick Q&A session that helped clear students’ remaining doubts about living and studying in Austria.
【Career】Looking Back NSYSU Hult Prize Campus Competition & Champion Team Era Online Workshop for Taiwan Finals
The NSYSU Hult Prize Club, which is supported and supervised by the Office of Career Development at the College of Management, successfully held the Hult Prize on campus program competition at NSYSU last December. The competition’s theme was focused on “Getting the World Back to Work” and encouraged students to focus their creativity on establishing innovative ideas that could create new employment opportunities while fulfilling the social responsibilities of the College of Management; it also promotes education on ethics, social responsibility, and sustainability, leading students to have a better understanding on social enterprise.
Team Era had participated in the 2021/2022 Hult Prize on campus program competition at NSYSU last December. Era was honored to achieve first place and will represent NSYSU in the upcoming Taiwan finals.
To ensure the feasibility of their project, Era had the pleasure of working together with Jessi Fu, the Hult Prize global winner in 2015. This collaboration has been extremely fruitful and helpful as Era were able to significantly improve their business idea and pitch based on the constructive feedback given. For example, they learned how they could demonstrate their emotions by re-designing the PPT slides, improving their speech, incorporating solutions to challenges that hadn’t come to mind yet, and improving their business model, all to have better performance during the upcoming Taiwan finals.
Team Era consists of four individuals from different countries. The role of the Chief Executive Officer was helmed by Suphanut Wu from Thailand. Next, they have Chia-Jui Kuo from Taiwan, who took on the Chief Operating Officer position. Thirdly, Thaisa Appelman from the Netherlands acted as the Chief Marketing Officer. Lastly, we have Akshit Mehta from India as the Chief Human Resource Officer.
Era made a unanimous decision to create a business model that was focused on reaching a more sustainable future. After conducting in-depth research, their vision “Create a new Era with less e-waste” was established, and their business model was finalized. Era’s main goal is to implement an innovative business model in Thailand which has the simultaneous benefit of reducing e-waste while providing employment.
To achieve both goals Era strived to launch an application in Thailand to ease up the process of disposing of one’s e-waste. Additionally, they have planned on opening a facility in Bangkok where the e-waste can be collected, sorted, and dismantled. Another crucial factor in their plan is to organize events and lectures to increase awareness among the population about all the harmful impacts e-waste has on its environment.
Since the Taiwan final competition is approaching, Era plans on meeting with an e-waste recycling company in Taiwan to acquire additional knowledge. They will also continue to improve their pitch and incorporate more detailed information about Era’s business model, and long-term plan. Additionally, they wish to retrieve more specific information about the technology used for e-waste and incorporate this information into their pitch.
Era’s team members said, “We are grateful for all the help given to us so far, and we feel confident that our business model will be successful once implemented in Thailand, and will demonstrate the path towards a more sustainable future while leaving no one behind”. We wish them all the best in the upcoming competition and hope they would be able to realize their dreams.
