Why Fujitsu? What inspired you to apply?
Being an ever-growing Global company, Fujitsu was a great fit and I thought it could provide me with a lot of opportunities for career progression.

Describe a Fujitsu graduate in 3 words
Motivated, curious, positive.

What skills do you believe a Graduate might need to be successful in the program?
As a graduate, you should be proactive, a strong communicator, customer focused and most importantly have a willingness to learn and say yes to any and every opportunity.

What were some of your day to day tasks within the grad program?
Throughout my year, I supported the sales team by doing research on customers, competitors and the market and by working on opportunities in a bid/proposal management capacity. I was also invited to attend some customer meetings where possible.

Words of advice to potential graduates looking to apply…
It isn’t about where you came from or what you studied, as long as you have a genuine interest for the role and you show your potential you will be successful. Have faith in your ability and bring your best selves to everything you do.

What was the biggest challenge you faced in the program?
The biggest hurdle for me was making the initial move to introduce myself to people around the office and key people in the business. I learnt quickly that you have to get out of your comfort zone because it’s amazing what you will get out of it when you do!

What was the coolest experience you had within the Graduate Program?
Within a few months of starting, I travelled to New Zealand to attend an internal conference. I also had the opportunity to represent Fujitsu and the graduate program at various universities in Victoria. On a personal level, being able to connect with a graduate cohort who you could swap experiences with and get support from was invaluable to me.

Why Fujitsu? What inspired you to apply?
I always knew that I wanted to be in IT but was unsure when that opportunity might arise. When I saw the graduate position open up, it was exactly what I needed. Fujitsu was ever-ready to train and prepare me for a career in IT and that is why I decided to join the graduate program.

Describe a Fujitsu graduate in 3 words
Determined. Disciplined. Daring.

What skills do you believe a Graduate might need to be successful in the program?
Having good communication skills, a thirst for knowledge, and hard work would be ideal to have before undertaking the Fujitsu Graduate Program.

What are/were some of your day to day tasks within the grad program?
Acting as a bid manager for bids and sales account management were some of the tasks that I undertook as a Graduate.

Why Fujitsu? What inspired you to apply?
Being a global company, I felt there would be opportunities for me to grow professionally and learn more about the marketing and communications function than I may have learnt within a smaller organisation.

Describe a Fujitsu graduate…
Mature, a keen learner, determined to succeed and own their own career.

What skills do you believe a Graduate might need to be successful in the program?
• Strong communicator – this is essential in my role.
• Focussed and dedicated to your role and your team – Fujitsu is only as good as its people!
• Willing to take on new opportunities even if they are out of your comfort zone.

What are/were some of your day to day tasks within the grad program?
• Working with internal stakeholders to produce and share content about major wins, customer achievements or internal activities
• Leveraging the opportunities and marketing collateral that comes from our Global teams – often this involves evening conference calls with Germany, the UK and the US!
• Coordinating and attending external industry or customer events

Words of advice to potential graduates looking to apply…
I finished my university degree (Commerce) and never thought I would pursue a career in IT – take a risk, you never know where it will lead you! Fujitsu has opened my eyes to the world of corporate business – I’ve learnt so much about the organisation, and how to work with different people of various backgrounds. With the correct attitude, maturity and passion, you will do well regardless of whether you have a background in IT or not!

What was the biggest challenge you faced in the program?
Introducing myself to people in the business who had very demanding roles (you don’t want to seem like a burden), managing expectations and dealing with different personalities.

What was the coolest experience you had within the Graduate Program?
I’ve been lucky enough to travel interstate to attend one of our major events, as well as work with our corporate charity partners, Camp Quality & Soldier On and attend some great events such as concerts and musicals with them – being able to make a difference to the community and meet people within the community who are touched by our organisation is very special and humbling.
