5 Recommendations for Delivering Your Elevator Pitch to Employers at a University Career Fair

Allison_SteinkopfAs a recruiter at VMware, I define a student’s success on whether or not that student is able to leave a lasting impression with an employer during the career fair. As a student, there are two goals to keep in mind that will help you successfully navigate a university career fair: 1) learning relevant information about an employer, such as available growth & development opportunities, 2) and leaving a positive impression of yourself with the company representatives.

Here are five recommendations you can follow to achieve these goals:

1. Know who you’re talking with and ask relevant questions.

Different types of company representatives come to career fairs. You could be speaking with an HR representative, a recruiter, an engineer, or someone else. Once you know who you are speaking with, you will be able to better shape your questions. For example, an engineer is a great person to discuss technical project work with while a recruiter is the best person to ask about hiring timelines.

2. Don’t just ask what the employer can do for you, but tell the employer what you can do to drive what’s next for their company, its people, and the larger community.

Tell company representatives what you’re specifically looking for in terms of project work and why you are qualified to do this work. Research companies beforehand in order to have a concrete idea of what opportunities they have to offer you. After stating what you are most interested in, ask the representative if there are current opportunities for the kind of work you are looking for.

3. Learn more about the university program.

At VMware, we have extensive benefits for interns and new college graduates. Make sure that you ask company representatives what it is like to be an intern or new college graduate at their company. If you ask a VMware representative, they will say that beyond exciting project work, we offer additional benefits such as 1-1 mentorship, networking events with senior leaders and executives, educational opportunities, and much more.

 

4. Seek advice.

University career fairs are a great opportunity for students to get advice straight from employers themselves on how to take an individual to the next level. If you have time, ask an employer what they think of your resume or how you can further your experience to get closer to obtaining your dream job. Employers may provide resume critiques, advice about courses to take, or topics to research in order to propel your career forward.

5. Collect business cards and follow-up.

It is important to conclude your conversation with a clear path about next steps. Ask the company representative for a business card or social media information (i.e. LinkedIn or Twitter) so that you can follow-up with them. Additionally, ask if there are any other steps to take in order for you to be considered for open positions. If a representative tells you to apply online, make sure to follow through, as this will only help the employer help you. Many employers require candidates to submit an online application through their career website for compliance reasons so that candidates can be officially considered for open positions. Finally, if you do get a business card, you should send a follow up email with your resume and a thank you note to stay top of mind to the company representative after the career fair ends.

Overall, make sure that you’re prepared so that you can be confident when speaking with employers. You never know what opportunities could arise from your time at on-campus events, so make the most of them. You could end up speaking with an employer who was not originally on your list to speak with, and by taking advantage of this opportunity to gather more information about the company during the campus event, you will be better equipped to determine where you can bring your innovative ideas to life and grow professionally.

See you around campus this semester!

10 VMware People Embark on a Journey of Service and Return Changed by a Community Inspired to Grow

At VMware, our giving is rooted in a concept, called “Citizen Philanthropy,” recognizing that we all have something we can contribute to the community. Connect with members of the VMware ASEAN Citizen Council, as they share their service learning contribution with GK1World.

 

Group: ASEAN Citizen Council

Purpose: VMware Foundation liaison in South East Asia

Office Location: Singapore, but we enjoy connecting with our offices in the Philippines, Vietnam, Malaysia, Indonesia and Thailand.

Years at VMware: Our team has been bringing energy to the business for 3 years!

Favorite quote or motto: “We define development not in terms of money. We define development in terms of restoration of human dignity and quality of life”. – Tony Meloto – Gawad Kalinga Founder

 

How would you describe what the ASEAN Citizen Council does at VMware?

Through the ASEAN Citizen Council, we look to increase engagement and people-led giving initiatives around our region in collaboration with the VMware Foundation. The Academy of Management Journal (2008) discovered that the ‘Opportunity to give increases commitment to a company.’ We want to give that opportunity to our employees and make VMware a great place to learn and grow. Our team brings happiness to the community and to our coworkers through the empowerment of individuals who lead beautiful initiatives that change the world.

What is meaningful about your group’s work?

As a Citizen Council, we get to work on projects that are close to our hearts. We have the opportunity to build meaningful relationships with organizations that change the lives of people in our communities – it’s rewarding to be part of that change. The excitement and interest around the VMware Foundation and the work of the Citizen Council from new and tenured employees makes our roles all the more special. The most rewarding aspect about our work is the direct engagement with the communities in which we work and live and being able to bring positive changes to these communities’ lives.

In 2013, you all participated in a Service Learning activity. Can you share how your group contributed back to the community and what everyone learned through that experience?

In July of 2013, 10 VMware employees from our Singapore and Philippines sites embarked on a journey to the Philippines that changed our lives forever. Planning for the trip started about a month in advance. We wanted to leverage the five days that VMware employees are granted each year to contribute something back to a local community in our region. From the beginning, our goal was to live with the community so that we could understand it better and build sustainable things together. After a couple of weeks spent on research, we engaged with GK1World, which is widely known in the Philippines for its philanthropic work. Even though the rainy season was in full swing and with no other dates to choose from, we decided to go for it!

The GK site was 40km south of Manila, had 47 families living there and plans for 160 new houses, a school and communal area. In order for each family to obtain the right to move into one of the homes, they need to spend 1,000 hours working on the overall construction and a total of 2,500 hours of contribution to own it. After reaching 1,000 hours, a family can draw a key from one of the ready built houses to find out which one will belong to them. The model of not knowing which home will be yours helps to make sure everybody is motivated to do quality work while building each of the houses.

Immediately after arrival to the site, we received a warm welcome and got to know our host families over the next five days. Our daily life started with the sunrise when most of the village was waking up. From there we went and retrieved water from the well to take bucket showers, had a quick morning chat with the families through broken English-Tagalog conversations and played with the most adorable kids. After short breakfasts we were ready to work. We aided the construction by mixing cement, plastering, and digging holes for the foundation of the houses. Occupied by hours of sweat and a couple of blisters, we were able to achieve a visible impact through the completion of several floors, walls and the foundation. This could not have been possible without the guidance of several patient local builders.

The first part of each day was concluded with a delicious lunch served in huge amounts. Chicken adobo was one of our favorite meals. During the second part of the day we spent time with the local kids and participated in a variety of activities including crafts, blowing bubbles, balloon fights, kites and playing with balls. One of the biggest attractions was a Polaroid camera that we took with us in a last minute decision. Since there are no mirrors in the village, you could tell from kids’ expressions that for some of them this was the first time to see what they look like. It was simply priceless to witness this moment. Our days were finished with supper and a sharing session during which we could reflect on the daily activities and share our thoughts and emotions experienced during the day.

Throughout our short stay, most of us did not realize how fast we got used to the basic conditions of living and appreciating simple things in life like sharing a meal. We were able to share our happiness and help improve the living conditions, bring hope and smiles to people’s faces. At the same time we realized again how important it is to give back and spend quality time with people around us by working and having fun together. The last day came sooner then most of us expected and by mid Friday we had to say an emotional goodbye or rather ‘see you soon’ since most of us felt like we were at home there and wanted to visit again.

This experience will stay in our hearts and minds for a long time. We would like to thank VMware and Gawad Kalinga for giving us the opportunity to make it happen as well as special thanks to Olga Specjalska for organizing this activity.

What advice would you give to people who have the intention to volunteer, but just can’t find the time?

If you have the intention – just make it happen. There are many different ways in which you can contribute. Our first suggestion would be to plan early. We are all busy and our calendars fill up pretty quickly, but if you plan ahead and commit some time in advance for volunteering you will most likely make it happen. Secondly, if you really can’t find time, you can choose projects that would allow you to contribute in a different form – researching, preparing communications, getting supporters for an idea or donating items. Another option is to enable organizations that are already doing a great job on the ground through donations. If you really don’t have any time to volunteer, making a monetary donation is a great way to enable other’s to spend time on hands-on activities.

Now in 2014, can you share what’s next for you, your team or VMware?

We want to bring communities together and showcase the value that virtualization can give to the world.

Michael Corkery, VMware Technical Support Manager, End-User Computing, on taking on the challenge of starting over.

Change can be challenging. But Michael Corkery, Technical Support Manager, VMware End-User Computing, took a leap of faith to start over and try something new in his career. See how his decision to change led to his professional growth.

 

Just after the turn of the millennium, I left college and took my first “real” job as a systems administrator with a large Irish state body – the kind of job that would keep me safely employed to retirement. As much as I enjoyed it, after a few years I was no longer feeling challenged, so in 2007 – in the face of a global recession – I decided to leave that safe state job to go join an up-and-coming American software company that was disrupting the server market. Some friends thought I was crazy, but sometimes you have to take risks, and it paid off.

I started in VMware as a Technical Support Engineer for our core virtualisation products, supporting NASA‘s North America & South America customers. While the learning curve was initially steep, I quickly realised it was an opportunity to grow. I was working with customers of all sizes; global brand names with massive implementations to small companies looking to save on data centre costs, and you could never entirely predict the configurations and clever use cases you would see.

A year later, I moved to the emerging products team, supporting the newest VMware products for our customers in EMEA (Europe, Middle East, & Africa), and saw that VMware was innovating in more areas than I had realised. I was supporting products like VMware ThinApp (application virtualisation), Lab Manager (provisioning secured lab cloud environments, which paved the way for vCloud Director), and VDM (later to become Horizon View, leveraging your virtualization infrastructure to provision virtual desktop infrastructure). It wasn’t long before I became a research engineer, assisting colleagues with their workload and handling any escalated cases.

In 2009, my manager gave me a chance to provide direct input into how we could better organise where products fit into our different support teams to ensure the best customer support experience. I enjoyed the experience, and began to consider management myself. I had already worked closely with customers on escalations, and coached and mentored newer hires, so the time was right for change, to develop into a new area. Against stiff competition, I was lucky enough to be selected as a technical support manager, and a new chapter in my career began.

Since then, I have managed various subject matter expert teams within our business – and loved working with each of them. At VMware, you work with some of the brightest people you’ll ever meet, and you are always challenged, which means you are always learning. Everyone here shares their knowledge and works as a team, and it shows in the sense of community. It’s a culture of meritocracy, and I love that over the last few years, staff who have shown potential and dedication, coworkers that I have mentored, have progressed into management, or into senior engineer roles. It’s entirely down to their own efforts, but it’s still rewarding to see.

What’s also great is the mix of people we hire – obviously we take on people with industry experience, but through the Work Placement Program, VMware Cork has given months of training to each WPP candidate with the aptitude and will to retrain and get into IT. It gives us a chance to give something back to the community, and it works for everyone – we have had an amazing retention rate, and some of our best engineers come from all walks of life, showing that the right attitude and aptitude, anyone can succeed.

Giving back in meaningful ways is important to us. Recently, VMware Cork won the VMware IT@Cork’s Sustained Excellence award for being a strong contributor to the economy.

I have also had the opportunity to take part in quite a few projects to improve our operations, from the local to the global level. I’ve represented EMEA on projects such as moving to a global queue model, or global staffing coordination. We have great colleagues that we work closely with in North America and Asia, and it’s gratifying when you find the right balance of local consideration and global consistency that allows us to work our best to support our customers. I have worked on process improvements within GSS (Global Support Services), and worked with our VMware Support partners. I’ve been lucky enough to visit our North American centres in Burlington, Ontario  (Canada), Denver, Colorado (USA), and Palo Alto, California (USA), and I hope to get to visit our centres in Bangalore, Japan and China.

I feel like I’ve come a long way since I joined in 2007. It’s a busy, dynamic, and sometimes challenging environment – days go by very quickly, as there is always something the next big thing to do – but that’s what VMware is, a company that is at the cutting edge, defining what’s next in IT.

When I joined, we had disrupted the x86 server market and became the gold standard in virtualisation, and now we offer so much more. Outside of core virtualisation, we offer a suite of products to provision and manage public and private clouds, with mobility between them. My own team supports the Horizon Suite, allowing secure controlled access from anywhere to virtual desktop, virtual applications and data. And new features are always arriving to shake things up, such as vSAN, or Software Defined Networking. I may have left my engineer days behind, but I still love technology, and I love those ‘wow’ moments when you hear how something new works.

Looking back, I took a chance in starting again, and I’m glad I did – I’ve been lucky to be a part of a company that gave me chances to continuously learn and develop. I’ve gotten to work with great people locally and internationally (the latter are slowly coming to terms with the Irish sense of humour, I think), and to make changes for the better in how we work and help our customers. It’s been a busy time progressing through different roles and areas of the business, whilst starting a family, but I wouldn’t change a thing.

Betsy Sutter, SVP of People, VMware, takes a look back to prepare for the year ahead. Learn about her dynamic journey and how people are core to her cause.

I recently connected with Betsy Sutter, SVP of People at VMware, and learned about her dynamic journey since the early days of VMware to present.

My conversation with Betsy left me looking forward to what’s next for the company, technology and our people. Read on to learn more.

How would you describe what you do at VMware? 


I believe that people flourish and do their best work in an environment where there is choice and flexibility. As we continue this journey, the work landscape is becoming more mobile, hybrid, and complex. My role is to lead, advocate and support meaningful, seamless and integrated employee experiences that make sense in this new world. VMware is about creating a culture where talented people thrive in being part of what’s next, together – and have fun while making an impact.

I am also on the Board of the VMware Foundation – something I am very proud of because the work of the Foundation reflects how we are all connected and that building a thriving community together depends on the collective contributions of our incredible people through citizen philanthropy. Celebrating ‘giving back together’ is now a global tradition at VMware and speaks even more to what makes us unique. During our Gratitude campaign in December, VMware people were encouraged to express themselves on gratitude walls, learn about the science of gratitude with leading researcher in the field with Dr. Emmons and recognize each other during the holidays and beyond. It was a great time for us to come together and expand the spirit of community.

I’m seeing some fun posts by employees in the theme of being “Architects of What’s Next”. How did you complete your fill-in-the-blank mug — What’s next?

I love the Architects of What’s Next campaign. It speaks to me of how I think of VMware, in our desire to live on the bleeding edge of innovation and our ability to be the most creative and imaginative game in town. My mug says, “CARING about WHAT’S NEXT!” If you want to better understand how deeply I care, come and talk to me.

You’ve seen a lot and navigated the people aspect of VMware for more than a decade. If possible, can you choose one memorable moment to share with us?

I can remember being on a business trip to Cork, Ireland in September 2011 when the extension of the campus and the opening of “Behan House” was taking place. There were distinguished guests such as the Minister for Jobs, the Cork County Mayor, and our own Maurizio Carli in attendance while John Dolan and team hosted the day – which included a ton of press and media analysts! It was all very exciting. And being able to watch and participate in our Ireland employee’s celebration of VMware’s fantastic story of success and growth in Cork was wonderful. But it was the graciousness, passion, and pride each and every employee had about both the milestone and the day that made a huge and memorable imprint on me.

I also have a wonderful memory of being able to attend the VMware Shanghai R&D Center’s first Charity Day in October 2012. The employees and the Foundation team were establishing an annual event to encourage all the employees to learn from and interact with external NGOs and charities. The employees were encouraged to bring families, kids and friends to the Charity Fair. I was inspired by the amount of energy, the incredible interest, participation and passion that exuded that day. It further validated the importance of the VMware Foundation’s unique approach and that it is appreciated by our people around the world.

What do you enjoy doing outside of work?

I love long-distance running. And I passionately enjoy marathons. What I like most is the preparation and strategy required – both in mind and body. I usually over-prepare by pacing myself at the beginning and finishing strong at the end. Marathon running has taught me the importance of preparation, endurance and having strong follow-through. I take this approach throughout my personal and professional life too. Recently, I completed a run with my daughter. It was such a great feeling to do it with my family!

Do you have a thought leader or person you admire in your field or industry? Who and why?

I continue to admire Diane Greene who was one of the founders and first CEO of VMware. She was fierce about building great technology and a strong culture – and she did it. VMware’s culture continues today because of the strong and connected underpinnings Diane put in place. She grew the business to $0 to $1b and I am not aware of any other founder female CEO who has done that. She was courageous and independent in her thinking and her choices. And while she had a strong exterior, she was thoughtful and generous with things she cared deeply about. She showed me what it meant to stay true to one’s own guiding principles, the importance of being self-aware, not to be afraid to tackle really thorny problems (like entrenched mindsets and fierce competitors) and to think broadly, systemically, comprehensive and differently about the things one does.

You’ve been here almost from the beginning of VMware! How has VMware changed and grown? What remains the same?

I have been here a long time – since there were 150 employees! As I look back, and look forward, it’s clear to me that our values provide the foundation for our success. What remains the same about VMware is that HOW we do our work is as important as WHAT we do. This shows up in our values, which we recently refreshed. We wanted to ensure that they would help us shape the next decade of leadership so we engaged our employees and leaders in dialogue. It was great to get everyone involved and hear especially from our most passionate advocates.

As I think about our values – execution, passion, integrity, customers and community – the one that has grown and evolved is community. When I think of community, I’m also considering how our ever-changing world evolves. Our new world delivers the opportunity to readily harness the energy and input of our talented employees through global, mobile and social ways. For example, we use our own internal social network on Socialcast frequently to gather comments, have conversation and share news. Whether it is Socialcast or some other means, we seek dialog that is interactive, real time and holistic – one that embraces community.

“Architects of What’s Next” is about our talented community of people – what fuels them and why they are driven to make an impact. It’s about valuing our people today and attracting the talent of the future. As we kick off the New Year, can you share what’s next for you at VMware?

I am more excited about this lap of VMware’s journey than I have ever been before. It is a more complex, more challenging and honestly, a more interesting time in the industry. We have world-class talent at every level in the company and we are more focused on executing at a higher level. I really love having to raise my game. And developing people strategies and creating programs and platforms for our employees that also help differentiate us as a company, is a passion of mine. I know that together we are going to accomplish more greatness and continue to lead the industry in 2014.

 

Hats off to a new year! Let’s all work together to architect what’s next.

Price Smith

Driven by a group of passionate women at VMware Singapore, several key successes for the ASEAN Diversity Council include:

As we look to what’s next for our people and the IT community, we’d like to share the 2014 VMware cookbook calendar with you. Dig into the cookbook recipes and be sure to let us know what you cook up next (in food and tech) in 2014!
