Women in Technology this Spring at VMware

  AliciaSchetterPhoto

 Many readers of this blog might suspect that at this time of year campus recruiters are beginning to take a break from being on the road after traveling from career fair to career fair. That may be true at many companies but at VMware, the global leader in virtualization and cloud infrastructure, our travels continue. During this time of the recruitment season, our focus shifts a bit. We’re now looking forward to participating in more and more women focused technology events on campuses and at regional and national conferences. For example, over the remaining spring months, our planned visits will take us to UT Austin, GA Tech and Cal Poly to meet with student organizations developed to bring together women in computer science and engineering. We’ll be learning about new ways we can partner with these groups and support efforts to build awareness among members of all the amazing opportunities for women in the technology industry and at VMware specifically. 

 Regionally, we’re excited to attend the Mid-Atlantic SWE in the City conference the end of March at Columbia University in NYC. The goal of this event is to facilitate connections between students, professional SWE members, corporate representatives and faculty members. VMware will be on-hand during a networking reception and the career fair specifically, eager to meet with 300+ talented female engineers who will be attending weekend activities.  If you’re reading this and are planning to travel to NYC, send me a heads-up!  Let’s set up some time to chat. For more info, check out the conference site here.

 From a national perspective, just yesterday, Anita Borg Institute leaders visited us at our beautiful Palo Alto campus, to discuss events and programming scheduled throughout the year for our current and future women in technology. The event of most interest to readers is likely the Grace Hopper Celebration (GHC) of Women in Computing scheduled to take place in Baltimore from October 3 – 6. For those of you who are not familiar with GHC, now is the time to learn more and think about getting involved. This event is a series of conferences designed to bring the research and career interests of women in computing to the forefront. Presenters of conference sessions (presentations, workshops, panel discussions, etc.) are leaders in their respective fields, representing industrial, academic and government communities. Attending GHC, offers an incredible opportunity to collaborate and network with other female tech professionals worldwide. It is truly a celebration and experience you will not soon forget. The connections made at this event are guaranteed to span for years to come. VMware will have a booth at the event in October and will also be conducting interviews on-site. Mark your calendars and plan to meet with us. To learn more about attending, check out the Grace Hopper website which reviews information on applying for a scholarship here. You might also consider talking to the department leaders of your current program to find out if there may be opportunities to take advantage of available funds to support your registration and/or travel to Baltimore.

 We sincerely hope to see a few of you at one or more of these events sometime soon! Please connect with me if you are interested in learning more or if you are aware of other organizations or associations for women in technology that we should consider exploring partnership opportunities.

Life at VMware – Chili Cook-off at the Colorado Springs Office

LauraDouglas

 

 Our Colorado Springs office recently held a chili cook-off in an effort to “spice up” an ordinary Monday. The concept was simple: interested parties make a batch of chili, the office gathers at lunchtime to devour it, and everyone votes for their favorite! We had a total of thirteen entries, and each was very different. Some varieties we enjoyed include Sweet Texas Chili, All-Meat Chili made with veal, and even Green Chili con carne de alce (moose meat).

  ChiliCookOffIn the end, senior software engineer Sean Bryan won first place. His prize included a gift card and a coveted chili pepper necklace to be worn for the rest of the day. This victory also included bragging rights, especially as his recipe proved victorious over another employee who has won past chili competitions multiple years in a row.

 Sean used the recipe of a friend who passed away from breast cancer three years ago. The chili is named in her honor. Below is the recipe to make this mouth-watering chili. 

Carisa Winters Memorial Green Chili

1 lb. Chorizo Sausage

1 ½ – 2 lbs. pork, cubed

4 – 5 cups chicken broth

½ cup Mexican beer (dos xx)

2 lbs. chopped green Chile (1 can 27 oz Hatch mild green chilies)

1 tomato, chopped (1 can 14.5 oz. no salt added chopped tomatoes

2 T butter

½  medium onion chopped

2 cloves garlic chopped

½ cup fresh cilantro

1 T Tabasco

1 ½ tsp. oregano

2 ½ tsp. cumin

1/8 cup chopped parsley

1 tsp. salt

1 tsp. pepper

2 T butter

1 ½ tsp. flour

2 T. flour

-Brown meat and put in heavy soup pot.

-Add chicken broth, beer peppers, and tomatoes and bring to a boil

-In a skillet place 2 T butter and melt. Add onions, garlic and cilantro. Sauté until onions are soft

-Add Tabasco, spices and first flour to onion mixture. Cook for 3-5 more minutes and add to soup pot.

-Boil again and then simmer for 2 hours stirring occasionally

-In small bowl place remaining butter (melted) and 2 T. flour

-While stirring, add tiny bits of flour/butter.

-Simmer 15 minutes

 Everyone had a great time socializing at the event and it proved to be the perfect lunchtime distraction on a winter Monday. If you end up making Sean's Carisa Winters Memorial Green Chili let us know how your batch turns out! Better yet, we would love to know some of your favorite chili recipes that get you through those winter months.

VMware Intern Prodigy – Changing the Way We Use Cloud Computing

Headshot-ilari

 

 Do you want to help change the way we use computing? If so, spending time at VMware is a fantastic experience. Being an intern this past summer was a superb way to dive into the next generation of technology while working with a truly remarkable group of people.

 I worked with the vCloud team for twelve great weeks. Though "cloud" can mean many things, vCloud Director is all about providing easier, faster access to virtual machines, networks, and storage — something that can make infrastructure so much easier and efficient. Don't simply take my abstract word for it – though there are many others who can testify, Chewbacca's interview with VMware's CTO Steve Herrod is on the shortlist.

 My project for the summer involved a way to monitor systems like vCloud more effectively in the presence of virtualization. Rather than dive deeper into the technical side (suffice it to say it was both engaging and fun), I'll focus here on what truly made the experience great — the people I had the chance to work with and the environment at VMware.

 From the moment I arrived, I was impressed by the dedication and helpfulness of everyone around me. When I needed help with my development setup, my next-cube-neighbor Luke made it his priority to come to the rescue – and when I ran across a minor bug in one of the internal systems used by the team, I was encouraged — nay, urged — to track it so as to make sure it did not affect customers. Needless to say, the issue was resolved quickly.

 Being bathed in excellent ideas from the team was another high point of the summer. For example, my mentor Snorri had a vision of a powerful way to explore the type of monitoring data I was collecting — interactively "zooming" the way we do with pinch gestures on touchscreens. With the backend provided by VMware's Cloud Foundry, I built such a tool as a project for the summer intern "flings" contest; you can see the demo here.

 The vCloud team is also a very tight-knit one. We ate lunch together, and yes, it's awesome. Bringing everyone together to decompress, chat about work, and the happenings in the world makes for a great break in the middle of the day. It also doesn't hurt that the VMware cafe food is delicious, and that free snacks are in abundance. In yet another show of spirit, as many team members as possible came to the final intern poster session, where the interns had a chance to present the work we did to the broader VMware community.

 Thanks in part to VMware; we actually have a vCloud instance where I go to school. In fact, part of my project involves setting up the monitoring system there and developing it further. I'm incredibly grateful for the opportunity to continue working on a project that started at VMware with the wonderful group that is the vCloud team.

About Ilari: 

Ilari was an intern on the vCloud team during Summer 2011. He graduated with a BS in ECE from Olin College of Engineering, and is now a second-year graduate student at Carnegie Mellon. For slightly perplexing reasons he is also known as mrcaps.

Immigration & How it Relates to Hiring at VMware

Smiling Headshot option 6 (264)

 

Hi Everyone,

We’ve gotten a lot of questions regarding immigration and how it relates to recruiting. I’d like to take a moment and address some of these questions that have come in.

1. Can I apply to a job requisition if I do not live in the country that the job is located in?

Yes. You do not need a visa in order to apply for a job located in another country. If VMware seriously considers you for a position, then the Human Resources Immigration Team will assist you with any of the necessary legal documents that are needed for the position you have applied for.

 

2. Does VMware sponsor individuals? If so, when does the sponsorship process start?

VMware does sponsor individuals. We sponsor for both visas and green cards. For the green card process, there are a couple of conditions that apply in order to be considered for sponsorship. First, individuals have to have worked with VMware for three months. Secondly, during their three months, the employee must meet or exceed expectations in their performance and contributions. Each case is considered on an individual basis, including expedited cases.

 

3. Does VMware aid with Dependent Visas?

Yes. VMware does aid in the filings for the candidate’s legal dependents. VMware does not pay for dependents at the time of filing, but will reimburse attorney's fees and filing costs as per VMware’s Immigration policy when using the VMware preferred law firm. The complete Immigration Policy is provided in combination with the offer letter.

 

4. How long does the process take once I have been given a job offer?

Generally, the process can take between 6-8 weeks. If VMware expedites the process, it can take six weeks or less. As there are always variables involved, it is important to be patient during this process.

How to Best Prepare Yourself and Your Resume in Order to Obtain an On-Campus Interview

Unknown

 

 Spring season is fast approaching, a time for students to start exploring internship options at various technology companies. Quite often companies like VMware use On-Campus Interviews to engage interested students. I felt this was an ideal time to provide you with a Recruiters perspective to assist you with your preparation.

 First, a critical tool is your resume because it tells the employers about YOU and enables you to peak employer’s interests and attention. So it really is much more than just a paper you hand out to folks, or send to online job postings. Your resume is strong indicator of your personality, strengths, goals, and what you’re passionate about. To that point, it is important to have a specific objective. The more specific your objective is the better chances of getting passed the first level of screening. Having a clear cut objective is your key to convincing the hiring managers that you know what you want and understand the specific field and technology. It’s equally important to list the courses you have taken during semesters as it educates the interviewers about your area of interest and your level of understanding. It is recommended to always include your graduation date or anticipated graduation date on the resume as this ensures you are considered for the appropriate roles whether they be an internship or full-time role. 

 It is important for you to connect with the recruiter or HR representative who is organizing any on-campus interviews. Be proactive, and be responsive; when you hear from a recruiter, respond back either via phone or email as quickly as possible to ensure you are maximizing any opportunities which may come your way. Interacting with the recruiter will give you more insight into the role and more information about the hiring team.

 Second, the On-Campus Interview process is not a one sided activity. Students should look at this as an INITIATIVE rather than just an interview. The on-campus interview is one of the key tools that students should utilize in their search for jobs and internships. You as a student should look, listen and research carefully to determine whether this is a position that is a good foundation step for you. Make sure that you review your skills, abilities and characteristics required for the position. Think about how your research might intersect with theirs, and about the possibilities for collaboration. It will be important to market yourself confidently by discussing the value you would bring to the position, and how the skills and knowledge you have learned in school will enable you to be a productive team member. By doing this you will learn why having an objective is not only important to you but also to the employers you wish to engage.

 Finally, for the interview it is important that you practice explaining your projects, background, coursework, and previous internships on a deep level. How you explain and talk about your projects or courses can make a big difference in how they see your skills, confidence level and fit.

 So, get out there and take the initiative. Good luck!

Life at VMware – Cycling

StefanCameron

 

 Cycling and VMware go great together. With VMware's flexible work schedule, it's easy to fit work around rides or fit rides around work depending on how busy the schedule is. Whether you like to do your riding in the morning, at lunch time, or after work, there's always local rides to join and fellow cyclists to ride with. Spring, summer, and fall are almost completely dry with lots of sunshine. Perfect weather combined with clean, smooth roads with wide shoulders make the Bay Area a cyclist's paradise no matter what level of cycling they enjoy to do: recreational, training, competitive, and racing. It's also common to see recognized road champions out on local group rides, providing opportunities to ride with and learn from very experienced riders. What more could you ask for as a cyclist working for the leading company in cloud-based virtualization technology? Cycling1

 All of the rides below go by VMware's Palo Alto campus on Foothill Expressway. Within this post you will find a direct link to each route so you can have a look at what they are and the surrounding region.

1. Old La Honda/West Old La Honda loop

Info: Old La Honda is a beautiful 5.5km (just under 4 miles) winding Category 2 climb (7.1% average grade) in the mountain forest with views of the valley on the way up. It's a popular must-do climb and not far from VMware. The photo to the right was taken at the top just before the descent on West Old La Honda on the opposite side of the mountain looking west towards the ocean.

IMG_0147

2. VMware Noon-hour ride

Info: This is a small group ride with fellow VMware employees on a lunch hour that included some climbing in Los Altos Hills. The image to the left was taken at the intersection of Altamond Rd and Black Mountain Rd.

3. The Noon Ride

Info: For those that desire a bit of interval work, the noon ride at Page Mill and Old Page Mill road at 12:00 PM sharp is worth the aggravation of getting there. Pick up the pack about 12:06 rolling past the Park and Ride on Page Mill Road. There's always a 1-hour loop back to Page Mill and Foothill, with longer options on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday. The loop is about 22 miles. Doing the ride a couple of times a week will leave you with the sense that you're participating in a cycling epic. It's also good training for road racing, with an occasionally unruly pack that demands good bike handling skills. Frequently unfolding like a road race with surges and little attacks on the hills, you'll contest sprint points in the middle to the end.

Cycling2

4. The Spectrum Ride

Info: This ride is open to anyone as well; packs are usually about 50-60 riders and the ride is *fast*.

The Spectrum Ride officially starts at the Starbucks at the corner of Hollenbeck and Homestead in Sunnyvale, but often picks up additional riders as it motors along Foothill expressway toward Palo Alto. The route has changed somewhat over the years, and now winds its way through Portola Valley, and out Cañada road through Woodside. Riders typically contest hot spot sprints at the Woodside town line, and the end of Cañada road. This local classic starts each Saturday at 9 am, and typically rolls past downtown Los Altos around 9:15.

*A special thanks to Cheryle Custer, Andy Stewart, Daniel Mudimbe, and E Isaac Sparling for contributing to the brainstorm for this blog post.

VMware University Relations – what’s going on on-campus?

MeaganShannon

 

 In 2012 VMware will not just be on campus for the traditional career fairs and information sessions that hundreds of companies participate in. Instead, we are hosting non-traditional events such as Tech Talks, Coffee Chats, Product Demos, and Alumni Panel Events, which give students the inside scoop on the leading edge technology that VMware engineers are working on. The events also showcase the types of students VMware is interested in hiring and examples of projects YOU could be working on as a VMware intern or full-time employee.   Columbia

 Our first event of the season was a Tech Talk at Columbia University. This event was hosted in collaboration with IEEE, ACM, and EGSC. It was a huge success with close to 100 students in attendance thanks to the awesome job that the student groups did in spreading the word on campus! Arturo Fagundo, Senior Manager on VMware’s Mobile Virtualization Platform (MVP) team described to the students how innovation plays a key role in VMware’s success. Only four years ago, the MVP team was just a cool idea discussed by three VMware employees and a local professor over coffee. Today the team is comprised of 30+ engineers with a 1.0 product release called Horizon Mobile expected in the first half of 2012.

 Arturo’s talk provided the specifications of developing dual persona solutions for the mobile handset space and how VMware is leveraging virtualization expertise to solve enterprise access and security concerns. He also spoke about VMware’s partnership with mobile industry leaders to deliver a dual-persona solution for the Android market that will be released in the first half of 2012. This solution involves work at the OS/HW interface, Android application and management layers.

 This event is the first of many visits VMware will be making on campus and an example of only one of the 50+ product teams that interns and new college graduations have a chance to work on!

When will VMware be visiting your campus? Check out our list of upcoming events here.
