YOU-Experience Campus Program
Capgemini positively impacts its business by attracting and hiring the very best talent in the marketplace. We look to identify campus candidates who possess leadership, resilience, integrity, boldness, and superior communication skills.

Capgemini is committed to investing in its campus hires through its formal two week on-boarding in North America, Technology Consulting Workshop, extended 5 week on-boarding training in Mumbai, India and continuous action learning project development. In addition, Capgemini new hires are afforded opportunities to create their own career route. Brittany Garrison joined Capgemini in August 2010. She has already made significant strides in her post graduate career with Capgemini.
“Choosing a company where people matter has always been on my career shopping list. Having taken plenty of management classes in undergrad, I knew how important this was to have longevity and success with an organization. Thus, after early interactions with Capgemini, I knew I wanted to begin my career here.
The corporate culture I observed along the interview process is what stood out to me the most about Capgemini. Everyone I spoke with, even executives, made me feel at ease and that I would not only love to work for these people, but with these people. Although their managerial presence still stood, they were very approachable and happy to answer any questions I had. I found this as a breath of fresh air, as many companies with such prestige may not make one feel as though they “fit”.
I was also drawn in by Capgemini’s passion towards the development of its employees. After speaking with a recruiter, I was informed that the learning opportunities are endless at Capgemini as they offer a formal onboarding experience, a Technical Consulting Workshop, extended onboarding, certification programs, and e-learning modules to its employees. Fortunately, I was able to experience this first hand; My first two weeks with Capgemini took place at the American Airlines Training & Conference Center in Dallas, TX, where myself, and a diverse group of new hires attended sessions that educated us on Capgemini as a company while helping us develop our executive presence, and fundamental consulting skills. Following the training in Dallas, nearly half of the group went on to Mumbai, India to experience Capgemini’s Rightshore® approach for five weeks. There, we attended SAP, SA&I, and Oracle training (depending on our Service Lines) in efforts to prepare us for certification, and gain hands-on experience working as a team. But the learning didn’t end in the classroom, we were also able to take in much of the Indian culture, and see highlights such as the Gateway of India, Marine Drive, Colaba Causeway, and the infamous Taj Mahal,
My time in India not only taught me a great amount about my practice (Siebel, an Oracle Customer Relationship Management application used to help companies manage operational data, gathered via customer interaction, more efficiently ), but also helped my improve my cross-cultural communication skills. I came back to the U.S. feeling prepared for potential projects, and passing the Seibel certification exam.
Since then, I have had exposure to three different industries, created a video about our involvement with the Naandi Foundation, which has been leveraged globally, and the opportunity to help Capgemini bring great talent through my role as e-sourcing lead at Northwestern University. The amount of freedom and ability to choose your path within the company is an amazing feeling and I’m happy to work for a company that knows people matter, and results count”.
