The HP Sales Graduate Program was a good door opener to my future career. And it turned out to be so much more than that. We operate in a global team consisting of around 30 people from Germany, Spain, France, Finland, Denmark and Great Britain. And the good side is that we’re all located in the same office. We easily meet and talk on products and share good case practices, not to mention the Spanish cooking classes, wine tastings and escape rooms we usually go to after work.

Hire for attitude, train for skills

 

The biggest challenge in my life was to give myself the chance to work at a company and for a process on which I had never had any experience before. HP is definitely a place that gives people the confidence and the tools to become better every day. To become an expert at unimaginable things!

Wroclaw Finance team: a world-class example

 

In a hardware-oriented company like HP, innovation means new products. However, as a Finance function, I like to focus more on the innovation that we’re doing around people, engagement, processes, and automation. In my 10 years with HP, some of the things we previously did manually are now completely automated, and we see great examples of that every day - people pushing the boundaries.

From Mexico to Poland with HP Finance

Before graduating I was a little lost as I didn’t know where I would find a job. Then two of my friends started working for HP. I remember that I picked up my diploma on Wednesday, on Friday I went for an interview, and on Monday I was already working in Accounts Receivables at HP. Originally I wanted to be an aeronautic engineer. To be honest, I think I’m a frustrated engineer. Now I’m happy with my career in Finance.

How my internship kick-started my career

During that internship, I faced a lot of interesting challenges, met awesome people, trained and got trained and got a great opportunity. Here is just a little hint of what I did that this past summer.

A look back on my first 18 months at HP

 

 

Prior to joining HP, I had worked at tech startups, so HP was my first big company experience.   Being so, there was a bit of hesitation when the opportunity to join HP arose.  But in the end, I decided that I had nothing to lose, so I accepted the offer, moved to Silicon Valley, and started my role as a Community Manager at HP.

Reinventing “You”

 

It is not required that you have a varied career at HP – you can choose to stay in business operations or engineering or design throughout your entire career if that is your preference.  But if you’re like me and want to gain new skills and shift your thinking now and then, HP is a great place to do it!

Silicon Valley Notes: Two great questions

 Photo credit: TheMuse.com for HP

I was asked 2 great questions this week related to personal and professional development. A topic that I think of frequently and work on continuously.

 

Firstly, how do you manage to carve out time for your own development and keep growing yourself? And, secondly, how do you foster a learning culture in your organization?

Summer 2016 interns at HP Labs – Xi Liu

 

Michigan State University Ph.D. student Xi Liu is interning this summer in HP’s Print and 3D Lab, where she’s excited to be taking on new challenges in data mining, her main area of research interest. “Some companies just tell their interns what to work on,” she notes. “But at HP Labs, you can find something that both you and your advisors care about, so it's a great opportunity to get interesting work done.” Xi grew up in the heart of the ancient Chinese city of Xi’an and attended the Xi’an Jiaotong University, where she received her BS in electrical engineering. She’s now a rising fifth-year Ph.D. candidate in computer science and engineering at Michigan State. Outside of work, she likes to hike and play the violin.

Summer 2016 interns at HP Labs – Camille Eddy

 

Camille Eddy has wanted to be an astronaut since the age of twelve. That led the native of Idaho to focus on engineering and computer science as she was home schooled through high school and then to major in mechanical engineering at Boise State, where she’s a rising senior. “I see robots and artificial intelligence as having some really cool applications for space and for technology in general, and I just want to keep driving towards that,” she says. Already making her mark, Eddy was chosen to introduce President Obama when he visited Boise State to speak about education and innovation last year and is the recent recipient of a McNair Scholarship, a program that prepares students who are traditionally underrepresented in graduate education for doctoral studies through involvement in research and other scholarly activities.
