"What's it like to be in
Two years ago, Robert Everett asked himself this question. Today; as
Administrative Assistant to the Divisional Controller, Bob reviews his
experience at IBM and gives some pointers that may be helpful to you in
taking the first, most important step in your business career.

Take your

"What's it like to work for a big, ex-
panding company like IBM? What
would I be asked to do? Would I get
ahead fast?" These were some of the
questions that filled Bob Everett's
mind as he faced up to the big prob-
lem, "How can I put my M.B.A.
training to the best possible use?"
Bob came directly to IBM from
Cornell in July, 1955, with an M.B.A.;
In finance. He was immediately as-
signed, with twenty-nine other
M.B.A.'s, to a Business Adminis-
tration training program. This six
months' program comprised general
orientation in the entire IBM organi-
zation, a six weeks' field trip to the

Why Bob picked IBM
Bob made a careful study of existing
opportunities before selecting IBM
for his career. He had a dozen campus
interviews; took nine company tours.
IBM's M.B.A. program interested
hime-because, as he says, "It gave
me a chance to review the entire
company before starting an actual
line assignment." He was intrigued
by the increasing use of data process-
ing equipment in finance and he knew
that IBM was a leader in this field.
Salary-wise, he found IBM better
than many, but it was company
growth potential that motivated his
choice. "Opportunity certainly exists

Filtering out the "hot" projects
Promoted the same year
By December of the same year, Bob
was promoted to his present job-
Administrative Assistant to the Con-
troller of the Data Processing Divi-
sion. "The first function of an
Administrative Assistant," says Bob,
"is to filter out the 'hot' projects
from those that can be handled later.
You follow through on projects as-
signed by the controller and keep

Developing a new system
Syracuse branch office and several
months at the Poughkeepsie manu-
facturing facilities. There he gained a
functional knowledge of IBM ma-
chines, particularly the 700 series of
giant electronic computers.
His training completed by January,
1956, Bob was assigned to the Methods
Department as a Methods Analyst at
IBM World Headquarters in New
York City. Here, with the cooperation
of operating department personnel,he
worked on the development of systems
and procedures for the various Divi-
sion areas. In addition to normal
methods techniques used in develop-
ing systems end procedures, he studied
these projects in terms of possible
machine application for either IBM

"Opportunity certainly exists at iBM"
at IBM," he says. "Growth factors
alone will account for many new exec-

trend toward decentralization, which
also creates new jobs. These factors,
plus IBM's 'promote-from-within'
policy, add up to real opportunity."
IBM hopes that this message will help to
give you some idea of what it's like to be
