Early Career Talent Success Stories

Jason McCrorie

Global Security – Cybersecurity Analysis and Response professional (PREP class of 2018)

"I was looking for a rotational program coming out of college where I could work and apply what I learned in college across multiple areas of the business to gain experience and see what I like. In this role, I analyze cybersecurity vulnerabilities for their possible impact to HPE and work towards remediation if there is an impact."

Daniel Kuzmin

Global Security (PREP class of 2020)

"I joined the PREP program for the opportunity to rotate through different sub areas in my field to find out what I’m best at and what I like, which isn’t that common. Coming right out of college, I wasn’t sure exactly what I wanted to do. The opportunity to narrow it down a little bit is invaluable, so I chose the PREP program at HPE.  

If you’re looking for a position that is more geared towards helping you learn and becoming better at what you choose to do, it’s a good place for you."

Claudia Posada

Inactive Property Program Lead & Canada Transaction Manager (PREP class of 2015)

"The rotational aspect - coming out of college and graduating as a business major, I didn’t have a clear path I wanted to follow and this gave me the opportunity to test different areas in a corporate culture. Along those lines, joining a tech company that allowed me to collaborate across a lot of different groups was an intriguing aspect."
