In my five years working as a campus recruiter for Qualcomm, I can easily say that this has been the most exciting and successful recruiting year in memory. Despite the down economy, Qualcomm has been leading the hiring charge by offering over 350 new grad and 600 intern opportunities. It’s been exciting for our recruiting team to visit universities and offer important and challenging work to students — especially when the trend among many other companies has been just the opposite this past year.
We plan to continue our strong hiring efforts throughout 2010 with a large hiring focus on software engineering at our San Diego and Boulder locations. And our summer internship hiring is very strong for our Hardware, Software and Systems teams.
We have ten extremely dedicated recruiters on our campus recruiting team. We all are very passionate about helping connect students with internships and new grads with full-time positions. We’re all about ‘work hard, play hard’ around here. We’ve already started to plan our summer intern events. Weekly surf lessons, beach bonfires, baseball game outings, concerts on the lawn… and more!
We’ll be out on campus at 18 different universities this semester, scouting for talented engineering students... maybe you? If we’re on your campus, be sure to stop by and introduce yourself. If you’ve ever met one of our recruiters, you know we’re super friendly and interested in talking with you about your career goals and how Qualcomm might be a good fit.
From dropping pizzas into labs during finals week, to helping you and your advisor get research funding, Qualcomm and our recruiting team are committed to your success and finding you meaningful work. Seriously.
Look out for my next blog entry in a few weeks... I’ll be talking about ways to land an interview at Qualcomm. It’s easier than you think!
