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.
Thank you to all our VMware Interns for a great journey this summer!
It’ hard to believe that four months have passed and 300+ interns have come and gone from VMware campuses around the world. Most of our interns left with a sense of determination greater than the one with which they arrived. This new sense of determination is backed with an internship experience that was so much more than just a summer job.
A lot has happened to these amazing students. When they arrived they were excited, nervous and wondering if they would be able to achieve all that was expected of them. Quickly, they discovered that while VMware provided the tools and environment (mentors, support, systems, networking, meaningful projects) for their success, it was up to them to shape their success.
There was no separation of team member and intern… no separation from employee and intern… no separation of expectations. VMware interns, valued members of our collaborative employee community, knew they could make a significant impact to the team and company even in a short period of time.
Interns engaged and learned from some of our most talented people through:
- Informal executive Q&A sessions
- Lunch chats with top business leaders
- Open discussions with top engineers in the company
- Mentor programs
- Service learning and giving back activities
- Networking events
- Team outings
We encourage our interns to share their experiences and work they accomplished over the summer with our greater VMware community through “poster sessions”. Five separate poster sessions were held this summer, with hundreds of employees stopping by to engage in conversations with our interns.
So the heightened sense of determination was earned and has grown stronger as our interns return to their universities with the learnings from a robust VMware internship experience. From all of us at the VMware University Relations Program, we thank all of our interns for joining us this summer and for bringing your curious, enthusiastic, intelligent and energetic minds to VMware!
Best of luck!
