Travel to India and Work for Tata in 2008

Friday, January 25th, 2008

tcs-tagline.gif… an India-based business conglomerate operating under the motto, “Improving the Quality of Life.” And it indeed takes a catchphrase as broad as this to sum up such an expansive enterprise. Spanning 98 operating companies in seven business sectors, Tata has become known internationally for generating profit in seemingly any industry it touches. Tea, automobiles, hotels: Tata has its hand in them all and more. What does this mean for students at SFU? The Indian business giant is looking for 200 new interns in 2008. If you are looking for experience in information systems and communications, engineering, materials, services, energy, consumer products or chemicals, then you will want to attend the Tata Information Session this upcoming Thursday @ 4:00 pm*.  (*Note: please confirm actual start time early next week on the Career Services Website!)   RSVP here!                                                                                                                                   

To grasp the immensity of the Tata phenomenon, consider the following headlines pulled from recent news periodicals around the world: “Tata Consultancy Services wins ICSI National Award for Excellence in Corporate Governance 2007,” “Supercomputer developed by Tata group ranked 4th fastest in the world and fastest in Asia,” or “Tata Sky has Become Millionaire in Less Than One Year.” Since it was founded by Jamsetji Tata as a nation building corporation in the mid 1800s, Tata has become expanded tremendously. Today, the Tata group operates in over 85 countries across 6 continents. Moreover, after adding 20,000 employees from 53 different nationalities in 2007, the group is seeking an additional 30,500, with over 9,000 positions being reserved for students.

Wanting to set yourself apart from the everyday undergraduate, heading into an interview? Having international experience shows that you are independent, mature and willing to go beyond your comfort zone to accomplish your goals. Consider working for Tata as a means of gaining invaluable skills, exposing yourself to an exciting, fast-paced working environment and broadening your cultural knowledge. Visit the IRMACS theatre (ASB 10900) this Thursday, January 31st at 4pm* for pizza, followed by a Q&A with a Tata representative at 4:30pm. Let your career take flight!
