IBM Mentoring Scheme

Interested in finding a work placement?  Thinking about doing a graduate scheme?

This year, IBM will be mentoring first-year Kent students looking to do a placement and second year students who will apply for employment or a graduate scheme in their final year. This scheme will use virtual mentoring and most contact with students will either be via email, telephone or Skype.

The aim is to increase awareness of employability, the recruitment process, key competencies employers are looking for and advice/tips for securing a placement or graduate scheme. It also provides students with a fantastic chance to enhance their skillsets.

The scheme is not about encouraging you to join IBM but will give you valuable skills to apply successfully to any organisation.

IBM want to make students aware of how competitive today’s job market is and give them advice on how best to promote themselves.

This scheme is open to ALL stage 1 and 2 students. You can be studying for any degree subject and don’t need advanced computing skills!

Deadline for applications is Monday 13 November 2017
