Posted: Apr 20, 2011
Hewlett-Packard (HP) is the largest technology solutions provider in Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) and worldwide. The company’s offerings span from IT infrastructure, personal computing and access devices to global services and imaging and printing. Our customers are virtually everybody: consumers, small and medium sized companies, large corporations as well as Government institutions.
HP is a company fuelled by new thinking and unique ideas about creating more valuable experiences with technology. We make the impossible possible and are committed to challenging, stretching and never staying still. It is all to do with what sets us apart as a company.
At HP we work across borders, and without limits. Global virtual teams share resources and pool their brainpower to solve business issues and meet personal goals. Each individual is valued for the unique skills, experiences and perspective he/she brings. That’s how ideas – and people – grow.
Now we are looking for the best talents to help us develop cutting edge technologies and grow in EMEA. We’ll invest in your intellectual ability, encourage early responsibility and support your ambition and progress. With our coaching, guidance and global reach, the future is yours to explore!
What do we offer?
We don’t expect you to already have specific technical skills or professional experience. That’s exactly what we will provide you with through our Graduate Development Program. HP gives you the opportunity to transition from a brand new graduate to a professional in IT Technology and Consulting.
We will help you achieve this by putting a comprehensive individual development plan in place to ensure a structured and blended learning experience with extensive on-the-job, in-class and virtual training opportunities. A mentor will be assigned to you to give you support along the way as well as regular feedback on your performance and development.
While applying for the Graduate Development Program you will be able to choose which area of professional development interests you most.
You can choose one of the following:
• Graduate Development Program: Technical Consultant
In this role you will learn to effectively apply your technical expertise in IT consulting projects. You will establish and maintain a professional working relationship at multiple levels both internally and with the client by delivering one of HP’s core technology solutions to large corporations and Governments.
• Graduate Development Program: Customer Services Engineer
In this role you will configure system hardware, software and network components, assemble and integrate systems and products and verify operation requirements. At a later stage you will learn how to use proactive monitoring procedures to identify problem prevention opportunities. In addition you will conduct customer presentations as well as compile information to convey major points clearly and persuasively.
• Graduate Development Program: IT Business Development Analyst
The IT Business Development Analyst establishes and maintains a professional working relationship at multiple levels both internally and with the client by developing a core understanding of the client’s unique business needs and competitive challenges. You will then tailor strategy and architect solutions to meet the needs of the client and interface with both internal and external industry experts to anticipate customer needs and facilitate the development of the most suitable IT solution.
What do we expect from you?
We’re looking for people who graduated from universities within the last 12 months or who will graduate within this academic year.
You can be a graduate in one of the following areas:
In addition, we are also looking for the following “extra qualifications”:
•Interpersonal skills: the ability to work well with people of all types and backgrounds
•Flexibility: a talent for adjusting quickly to rapid change
•Team Player: a reliable team member at work and beyond
•Analytical Abilities: an eye for detail, even in a general context
