Welcome to Capgemini! I hope you are enjoying your first months on the job, I’m sure it’s been a whirlwind so far. As you start your career, I highly recommend you try to become involved in at least one Capgemini group outside of your client commitments.

Another program I highly recommend getting involved with as soon as you start at Capgemini is the Buddy Program. We all had a buddy when we accepted our offer at Capgemini, and this person can really help you as you start your career. When I took my offer, my buddy reached out to me immediately to answer all of my questions. He also set up a dinner with some other Capgemini consultants for me to meet so I was able to get a feel for the culture and ask any questions I didn’t want to ask the recruiting team. This went a long way in calming my nerves as I arrived at on-boarding, as I already had a great feel for the Capgemini culture and what would be expected of me as a new-hire. Joining this program will help you ease the transition from college to the working world, and help your buddy hit the ground running their first day.
