- Why IBM
IBMers bring out the forward-thinker in all people. That's because we're in the business of making the world work better. Not just envisioning a better world. Not just building the technology for that. But actually delivering results and making it work better. Making it work smarter.
At IBM, employees have the opportunity to change the way the world works - literally. That is, the systems and processes that enable:
- physical goods to be developed, manufactured, bought and sold;
- services to be delivered;
- everything from people and money to oil, water and electrons to move;
- billions of people to work, govern themselves and live.
For the first time in history, almost anything can become digitally 'aware' and interconnected. Smart airports, smart banks, smart roadways, smart cities -with so much technology available at such a low cost, the list of possibilities is endless.
The world is at a critical inflection point. We know we are all now connected economically, technically and socially. But being connected is not sufficient. We also have to infuse intelligence into our systems and ways of working. The world is smaller, flatter, faster. We think it can be smarter, too.
At IBM, you will have the opportunity to work for the world. We strive to ibmract imaginative and innovative individuals seeking careers without boundaries.
IBM offers a wealth of businesses from which to choose. Whether you're interested in consulting or computing, research or retail, software or sales, there's something for you at IBM.

- Recruiting Process
How does IBM's university recruiting process work? How do students apply?
IBM recruits at top programs throughout the US. On campus in Fall and Spring, students can find us at career fairs and info sessions, leading classroom discussions, participating in student organization events, and so on.
We typically conduct first-round interviews on campus. Second rounds, for competitive students, may take place at one of our office locations. For candidates who apply online at ibm.com/start, know that IBM does review ALL applications and will reach out and interview candidates we think may make a strong fit. We welcome any and all candidates to apply.
- Careers in Consulting
When you join IBM Global Business Services (GBS), you become part of something special - an ever-evolving, 100-year IBM legacy of excellence that continues to be recognized throughout the world.
GBS hires talented university students at both the undergraduate and graduate levels to fuel our growth and develop the future leaders of our business.
Our new consultants have the opportunity to contribute right away, at top-tier clients and in collaboration with great people in a dynamic, team environment. It's challenging and exciting - and not for people who want to know exactly what they'll be doing and where they'll be doing it each day of their career.
- Interns and Co-Ops
Student employment assignments provide you the opportunity to become familiar with IBM's organization, work style, culture and global reach. Salary is based upon the number of credits completed towards your degree. You must provide verification of credits, in writing, from your school, prior to assignment.
Co-op and internship programs are an important recruiting channel for IBM because they help us identify high-potential prospective employees. Participating students are often considered for repeat internships or a long-term commitment of regular employment. Our philosophy, simply stated, is recruit once, hire twice.
"Before working at IBM, I thought it was a company that I personally had no connection with in the real world. After being here for a couple of weeks, I learned it's not the case. For example, the Wii and Playstation games that I play have parts made by IBM. And, IBM is helping to keep me safe by helping the New York Police Department fight crime."
