We are currently looking for passionate graduate associates for the following roles in our business:
Your Name: Yen Vu
Your Job Title: Associate Solution Engineer
University Attended: University of New South Wales
Degree Qualification: Bachelor of Commerce/Science
Year of Graduation: 2018
What's your job about?
As a Solution Engineer I provide technical validation to account managers and various stakeholders to help facilitate closing a deal. A day of work at VMware is dynamic and ever changing. I typically reach the office just a little before 9am. After catching up with account managers, I start going through my checklist and see if there are unfinished tasks the day before. Then I prioritise and answer my emails. My main role is to support closing a deal, either in conjunction with the VMware account manager or with a partner organisation. In order to do this, I must make sure my knowledge of VMware products, acquisitions and industry trends is always up to date because customers see me as their VMware trusted advisor.
Before wrapping up the day, I check in again with my account managers or partners, then check what needs done the next day. Depending on the workload, there will be days where I will stay back a little later, but a typical day ends around 5pm.
What's your background?
In 2010, when I was 16 years old, my parents sent me to Australia to study abroad. For the past 10 years, I have strongly focused on my education as well as personal and professional development. After finishing a double bachelors degree in Commerce and Science, I started working at VMware on 18th March 2019. Ever since that day, it has been an incredible journey where I have learnt and grown, all while being challenged and continuously supported by the VMware community. What surprises me the most is that even though I started my career at VMware as a graduate, the opportunities that were given were far more rewarding and fulfilling than I could have ever imagined.
I’ve learnt about VMware as a sales organisation, how a solution engineer (SE) supports various stakeholders including account managers, specialist SEs and channels/partners and distributors. As such I’ve learnt the critical nature of my role and enjoy my current job even more than I did when I started.
Could someone with a different background do your job?
I believe success is based on intelligence, experience, talent, education but most important of all, perseverance is what separates success from failure. I also feel that regardless of where you are from, hard work and strong will enable you to conquer the most difficult tasks. I don’t believe I am different than the combination above, these are the characteristics that enable anyone to do the job that I am currently doing.
What's the coolest thing about your job?
The coolest thing about my job is that I get to go out and see customers. I really enjoy talking to people and finding out how our technologies can help them achieve their business goals. I also find that because of the unique skillset required to be a Solution Engineer, I get to be both business oriented and technically adept. VMware also supports their employees in giving back to the community. Recently I was with my colleagues in Cambodia building a bike shed for Community School Prey Thom, an opportunity that I am very grateful for.
What are the limitations of your job?
Even though I love my job, it is very demanding in a way that you must continuously learn and update your industry knowledge to keep up with new acquisitions happening within the company and also in the market. This requires you to be a fast and passionate learner. You must enjoy learning new things and adapt quickly to new situations, and cannot take no for an answer. As such this may require you to spend time outside of work studying new technology. If you are looking for a routine 9-5 job, this is not for you.
3 pieces of advice for yourself when you were a student...
If I could go back in time and meet myself at university, I would tell myself three things:
- Keep being open minded and treat the world around you as an oyster, where everything is possible and could happen.
- Don’t stress too much about the future and be authentic, always believe in yourself that you will make it regardless of what uncertainties and concerns you may have at the time.
- Always be learning and never stand still, because never has education been so important and do not let anyone tell you otherwise.
VMware is committed to investing in programs to expand the community of female and diverse talent in technology.
Among other things, this means it has signed the Tech Inclusion Pledge, joined the Employers for Pay Equity Consortium and taken part in the Corporate Equality Index (which rates workplace on LGBTQI equality).
There is also a VMware Foundation. Its mission is to amplify the contributions of VMware people to their causes of choice and inspire the Citizen Philanthropist in every team member.
It’s ingrained in our business from our global CEO down because people matter. Locally in Australia, we demonstrate this in a range of ways. For example, we’ve partnered with the Black Dog Institute to run a hackathon to raise awareness for mental health; we’ve raised money for a range of causes close to our employees’ hearts; we’ve invited groups of refugees into our office and helped with their resumes and LinkedIn profiles to aid them in their job seeking efforts.
As a company, we celebrate significant dates on the calendar like International Women’s Day, Harmony Day and PRIDE month.
We also make sure we give back to the community we live in. We do this through our service learning program, which is based on volunteering. Our teams have helped with OzHarvest, wildlife parks, initiatives to help the homeless, and building schools for kids in disadvantaged communities, to name a few. We get 40 hours of work time every year to do this – and if we reach our 40 hours, the company will grant us a cash donation to give to our charity of choice.
While we’re talking about charity donations, anything we personally donate to charity, VMware will match. Last year, more than 20,000 VMware people supported 8,484 nonprofits in 96 countries.
Start your career with VMware and get ready to push the boundaries. You’ll join one of the many dynamic teams in our business creating innovative solutions, solving complex problems and transforming technology as we know it.
We offer a variety of programs that will help you expand your network, gain invaluable insights, and discover your strengths and passions. Wherever your talents lay, you’ll take ownership of meaningful, big-picture projects that will become a springboard for an impactful career. We’re excited to see what you can do and will give you the chance to showcase your accomplishments with the VMware community – including some of the most influential and inspiring people in the industry.
Our innovation, the ongoing learning opportunities and the visibility we give our employees are just a few reasons why VMware is one of Fortune’s 100 Best Companies to Work For.
