    Support & Guidance

  • 4. How much support and guidance did you receive during your placement / internship?

    Culture

  • It was very pleasant, however, I did not really experience the real atmosphere of the company as I spent my placement year working from home. As much as I managed to get to know colleagues and form some kind of relationship, this would have definitely been different if we worked together 1:1 on a daily basis.

  • 7. Would you recommend IBM to a friend?
  • Yes


  • 8. What advice would you give to others applying to IBM
  • Do your research for the company and be yourself to stand the greatest chance of actually getting the position. Recruitment managers want to see who you really are rather than who you claim to be. Keep your chill and read as much as you can about what the company is working on/investing or promoting.
