The VMware University Relations Team fosters relationships with universities, executes recruiting strategies and develops programs that enable VMware to acquire the best university talent around the globe.
In just a few days, more than 3,600 people will make their way to Baltimore for what will be one of the most inspiring conferences of the year, the Grace Hopper Celebration of Women in Computing conference. The Grace Hopper conference was established in order to bring the research and career interests of women in computing to the forefront.
Many of us here on the VMware University Relations team have been anxiously awaiting the opportunity to take part in the events, workshops and continuous networking opportunities that the Grace Hopper conference has to offer attendees. Our VMware team of 10 employees will expand once more when we land in Baltimore, as we’ll be joined by a number of our female interns from this past summer as well as two other female students who have received a VMware scholarship to attend the conference. In addition to the many professional development activities attendees will participate in, major companies and industry leaders, including VMware will sponsor a recruitment booth on the expo floor. Our team will be on-hand Wednesday, October 3 through Friday, October 5, to discuss both student and experienced-hire opportunities available at our locations throughout the United States.
We’re excited to meet the talent that the conference will attract this year! If you will be attending the conference this week, we encourage you to meet with us to drop off a resume and discuss your career interests and professional background. We will be at booth #1419, so stop by for a chat. We will also be hosting interviews during career fair hours, so be sure to prepare and have questions for us if you are interested in pursuing an opening at VMware as we will quickly move forward with the recruitment process if it is clear that you are a good fit for a position.
Have I mentioned raffle prizes yet? Yes, as an added plus, if you drop off your resume during the conference, you will be included in a raffle drawing that will take place during days one through three of the conference. Submitting your resume with us during the conference will also land you the chance to attend networking breakfast on Thursday morning, October 4 with the VMware team!
We’re looking forward to all that the 2012 Grace Hopper conference will bring as it is sure to be memorable event. If you can’t make it to the conference in Baltimore this year, but might happen be in Bangalore, India between December 13 and 14, there is another opportunity for you to meet up with us at the Grace Hopper Celebration of Women in Computing conference in India! VMware is proud to be a sponsor of the Grace Hopper conference in India this December.
