About VMware University Relations EMEA
Recruiting season is well under way for us here on the VMware University Relations EMEA (Europe, Middle East and Africa) team! We’ve been excited to see such a high level of interest in our Internship and New College Graduate opportunities from talented students across the Region.

Well, not quite 128, but we do have an ever-increasing presence in EMEA and are offering opportunities for students in locations including:
- Ireland – Cork
- United Kingdom – London, Surrey
- France – Paris, Grenoble
- Israel – Herzilya
- Bulgaria – Sofia
- Germany – Munich
- Spain – Madrid
- Netherlands – Utrecht
- Russia – Moscow
Here is what a few of our 2012 Interns are saying about us:
“After studying Computer Science and specializing in Computer Systems and Networking, I sought out an internship that would allow me to develop my technical skills. The Quality Engineering team at VMware’s Mobile Virtualization Platform (MVP) provided this opportunity. During my internship, I worked on mobile phone power consumption. This experience at VMware surpassed my expectations; not only did the team members provide invaluable assistance and guidance in my research, day after day they pushed me to achieve my potential so that I could be involved in much bigger and more interesting tasks. At the end of my internship, thanks to the team, I was able to continue working in the MVP’s Quality Engineering team, but this time as a VMware employee. Since then, I’ve been working with several teams of the MVP project and I’ve learned so much from both a technical and a personal point of view. I recently moved to the Horizon Mobile team and started to work on a mobile phone management system.” Matthieu, R&D
“Working as an intern at VMware has been challenging, fun, but most of all, educational. What I have learned during my time at VMware has far exceeded my expectations. I am studying for a Masters in Business Innovation and this internship has given me the opportunity to witness innovation at its source. VMware has a number of impressive mechanisms in place to facilitate idea promotion from within, while also allowing employees to work on open source projects. VMware is one of those companies that will help you grow and develop, based on your education, skills, and interest. There are so many tools to aid personal growth and further learning, such as free online books, training seminars, lunchtime yoga sessions and table tennis! The intern programme in Cork is really exciting, from excursions and barbeques to video-making competitions. It’s about learning, and preparing for your future career, but it’s also about enjoying yourself and getting the most out of the experience!” –Claire, Marketing
Areas of Opportunity
Internships vary in duration from five to twelve months, but no matter how long you are here, your experience will be one to remember. Interns benefit from regular performance reviews, 1-1 mentorship, networking events, social activities, service learning activities and global intern competitions.
The Year Ahead
VMware has already enjoyed on-campus visits to universities in the United Kingdom, Ireland and Bulgaria this season, and we’re looking forward to more visits in the months ahead. If we’re not lucky enough to travel onsite to your University, you can still connect with us on one of our many dedicated University Relations social media platforms to hear about our latest opportunities and on-campus events.
