by Ling Cao
“I was unclear about future when I just graduated from university. I joined JD because I learned they are hiring smart device managers,” Gan Gao, head of the Automated Storage Retrieval System (AS/RS) at JD’s Asia No.1 logistics park in Langfang, Hebei province, told Chinese National TV. With only a year of work, he is already an expert in his field.
Gan’s experience indicates a direction for students who have finished China’s national college entrance exam early this month, the “Gaokao”, and are now selecting majors. According to industry data, the talent gap in the robotics field alone has reached more than one million, due to technology development in latest decade. While JD also needs talent in this area.
Blockchain engineering is also a new job position to emerge as a result of technology digitization. Guowei Hao, who is now head of Blockchain Products at JD’s Logistics R&D Development is responsible for the digital logistics sheet signature using blockchain, which is paperless and traceable.
Talent is the core driving force for technology innovation. JD Logistics has cooperated with universities such as University of Science & Technology Beijing and Beijing University of Posts and Telecommunications to apply scientific research achievements in logistics. Going forward, JD Logistics will continue to work with the nation’s leading universities to build research institutions and cultivate talent, promoting industry development.
