For you, the competition starts here. For a century, our consultants have worked with governments, organisations and communities globally to create IBM’s unique competitive edge. Today, we continue to seek out the smartest thinkers and bring them together to create a smarter planet. We’re sharing systems and expertise to realise incredible possibilities. We want to see a planet that’s more connected in every way. A world that’s more productive, more efficient, more sustainable, more liveable. Now we’re seeking the brightest students around to explore our world.
This is your chance to see if you’ve got what it takes to join our consultant community, and fill your future with world-class ideas. It’s time to compete.
In late March and early April 2013, we’re hosting two special events. We’re offering a select group of undergraduates from all university years the chance to gain an insight into life as an IBM consultant.
The events will be hosted by consultants who are keen to discover new talent. They’ve put together a busy three-day schedule. It’s designed to reveal the inspiring world in which they work - and draw out your talents.
Here’s a taster of some of the things you can look forward to:
How IBM makes a real difference to the world we live in through our Smarter Planet initiatives
What our consultants do, and understand the impact they make
The cutting edge technologies and techniques you could work with as a consultant
Our consultant team, including recent graduates and those who’ve progressed to senior roles, who’ll share their stories in an informal setting
Life as an IBM consultant by taking part in a range of exciting simulations - from case studies and presentations, through to group exercises
Hursley House, our prestigious research centre, and its grounds, pay a visit to the IBM Museum, and find out more about our history in the UK
All the advantages you could enjoy as a consultant with IBM - from world-class opportunities for career progression, through to our flexible salary/benefits system that’s geared to your own life choices
Numbers are strictly limited, so competition is sure to be fierce.
To win your place, you’ll need to complete an online application form. If you stand out from the crowd, we’ll invite you to take part in a test of your numerate reasoning skills. Then we’ll select the winning applicants, and send invitations to the event.
The competition doesn’t end there. Alongside the more relaxed, informal and social aspects of the event, we’ll be running some important contests.
First, you’ll compete in a team-based case study challenge. If your team is the most successful at tackling a technical consulting scenario, you’ll each win a tablet computer.
You’ll also have a unique opportunity to win pre-approved entry to our Graduate Recruitment activities for 2013/2014 and that’s a competition which might just change your life.
