Who we look for

Like every business, we’re looking for certain level of skills and experience for our roles. But the deal-breaker’s something far more personal: we want to see qualities that inspire us. Clearly, everyone’s different; but we’ve found that the people who are most successful at IBM – whether they’re experienced hands or students who have just started out – have a few things in common.

Adaptability

We look for people who are flexible when things change. How do you cope with changing demands, uncertainty and stress? Do you remain calm and composed? Can you demonstrate that you have successfully completed several projects or assignments with competing deadlines? Can you quickly think of new approaches and solutions in response to changing demands?

Teamwork & Collaboration

This competency is all about showing us how you work with others to achieve shared goals. Do you respect and value others’ differences? Do you easily build and maintain relationships with others? Do you offer support and help others and share your expertise with them to enhance the effectiveness of the team?

Communication

This competency focuses on how you communicate with others. Do you present oral and written information clearly, precisely and succinctly? Do you match the way you communicate with the requirements of the situation and your audience? Do you listen carefully to others, asking questions when necessary to ensure understanding?

Drive to achieve

This competency is all about being committed to success and accomplishing challenging goals. Do you take the initiative to learn new skills that will be useful for your future career? Do you learn about things beyond the scope of your current job or assignment? Do you display a high level of energy and motivation to produce work of the highest quality? Are you prepared to put in as much additional time or effort as is necessary to ensure high quality results?

Creative problem solving

This is all about using ingenuity, supported by logical methods and appropriate analysis, to propose solutions to problems. Do you conduct thorough fact-finding and analysis, anticipating any potential problems and then plan accordingly? Do you think ‘outside the box’ when proposing solutions to problems? Do you put forward new ideas for activities at university or work and offer innovative ideas to overcome challenges?

Client focus

This competency is all about being able to work with clients and anticipating their needs and responding appropriately. ‘Clients’ can be colleagues, study groups, lecturers or customers you may have worked for. Do you build rapport quickly and easily and think about a situation from their point of view? Do you recommend solutions that meet their needs? Do you respond to requests from them quickly and accurately? Do you act with the clients’ satisfaction as top priority?

Passion for the business

This is all about being able to demonstrate a passion for our company and the industry in which we operate. Do you know what IBM does, and what recent achievements we have had? Can you demonstrate knowledge of recent trends within the IT & Consulting industry? Are you enthusiastic and passionate about working for IBM?

Taking ownership

This is all about identifying and taking responsibility proactively for tasks and decisions in a timely manner. Can you demonstrate when you’ve accepted responsibility for mistakes and worked to correct them? Do you focus on resolving difficult situations rather than finding someone to blame? Do you anticipate potential problems with a project and then plan accordingly, implementing decisions with speed and urgency?

Trustworthiness

This is about showing us that you can demonstrate integrity and professionalism when dealing with others. Can you demonstrate that you have honoured commitments and projected a positive image of a group or society you were representing? Do you communicate openly and honestly with others and follow through on commitments made to colleagues or friends?
