University Navigation

    • Thread Starter

    Hey everyone!

    We know there's loads of different options for you when you finish college/sixth form and it's not always an easy decision of what to do next ...

    We're happy to offer advice because all of us at some point have travelled or gone to Uni and joined IBM as an Intern/Graduate or jumped straight into work on IBM's Apprenticeship or Gap Year scheme.

    An Apprenticeship or Gap Year scheme is a great option because it offers you the chance to earn money, build your skills and work with great people. If you want to know more then ask away!

    Our Futures Gap Year scheme is now open for applications to feel free to ask questions relating to that as well: http://www-05.ibm.com/employment/uk-en/school.html

    Im thinking of the ibm gap year scheme however I was wondering if I would have enough time to do an AS on the side.


    I've only just found out about the IBM futures scheme and I was wondering what kind of tasks you'll actually be doing for the technical placement. The placement sounds like a really great opportunity but I haven't been able to find out what you actually get to do
