At IBM you'll gain knowledge and experience like nowhere else. You'll also be challenged and supported to achieve everything you wanted in your career. But it's a two way street. Have you got the smarts to succeed? The smarts to thrive at IBM?
We employ talented people in almost every area, in just about every country, so no matter where your talents and aspirations lie, it's not hard to find like-minded people who share your interests. During your graduate year, you'll find everything you need to build the kind of career you want. But it's up to you how it goes. You'll be the one in charge, putting forward your ideas, taking on responsibilities and making choices about how you get the job done.
To make sure you get exactly the help and skills you need, we provide targeted training that includes a range of opportunities - from a formal mentoring program and tailored skills and career development to peer support and professional development through monthly forums and the IBM volunteering program. There's also an annual recognition event for top performing graduates.
Whatever your question or training needs, you'll have some of the best brains in the business to consult: a worldwide collaboration of resources, experience and expertise that will help you achieve what you know you are capable of - and perhaps more than that.
One team, many people.
At IBM, we focus on performance. To help Australia and NZ work smarter, we need ideas born from different backgrounds, different perspectives and different attitudes.
And that means different people. So it just makes sense that we cater for a range of different circumstances, offering flexible work practices and a range of programs designed to let you fit in work around your life, not the other way around.
What we are not flexible on though is our commitment to innovation. We are tasked with creating a smarter planet and that's something every IBMer is focussed on, regardless of who they are or what they do.
At IBM, you'll be a part of something significant, something worthwhile.
You'll also have access to flexibility, support and opportunity like nowhere else. Don't compromise on your next career. Get the best of both worlds.
Training & Development
IBM's training and development programs cover both commercial exposure as well as industry recognised certification.
IBM's training and development programs typically cover two areas:
One of the most valuable things we can offer you is the opportunity to apply this knowledge in a hands-on, commercial environment, or 'IBM on the job training'.
You'll work on real projects, with real clients, and real bottom-line deliverables. But not to worry, both your Manager and Mentor will be there to lend their full support, enabling you to gain as much as possible from your exposure.
In order to achieve your career goals, you need to have the right technical and professional skills, as well as appropriate accreditation and certification for your particular area.
IBM will help you by providing opportunities to gain the most relevant and globally accredited certification necessary.
You will also be able to participate in monthly IBM Professional Development Forums to further enhance your skills.
