Help on your Dell job search.
Applying for a job is exciting and there can be multiple steps in the process. At Dell, our job is to guide you through these steps and give you the best candidate experience possible. To help you understand the application process, we are providing a list of the most common questions.
Frequently asked questions
First, try the job search tool on the career site that allows you to find opportunities by keyword and location as well as position type or function. If you want to further refine/target your search, advanced functionality is available. You can also sign up for job alerts, share jobs with your network and apply directly from our Dell Talent Community site.
Dell is committed to increasing our university hiring to 25 percent of all of our external hiring by 2020 as part of our Legacy of Good plan. To accomplish this, we have recruiters visiting university campuses throughout the year to showcase full-time, rotation program, internship and MBA opportunities for interested students. Check out our career calendar for a list of events or check with your university career center to see if Dell is coming to your campus.
To see open internship opportunities, you may search for jobs using the term "internship" or you can connect with Dell representatives at local career events. To see upcoming career events, visit our career events calendar. You may also check with your university career services center to learn more about opportunities at Dell.
Prior to starting the profile process, have an updated copy of your resume or CV on hand.
The languages supported by our application tool include: English, French, Spanish, Portuguese, German, Simplified Chinese and Japanese.
Our current process enables you to attach your resume or CV once you build your profile. The file must not exceed 200 kilobytes and must be in one of the following formats: Word (.doc), WordPerfect (.wpd), Text (.txt), Rich Text Format (.rtf), Hypertext Markup Language (.html, .htm), Portable Document Format (.pdf), or Excel (.xls).
Profiles will remain in the system for a number of years and will be purged as needed. We encourage you to update your profile on a regular basis.
No. The system enables you to update and change your email address. Please log on to your existing profile and locate the email address field in the personal information section. Changing your email here will also change the email address you use to log in. Please do not create multiple login accounts/profiles as this will delay the hiring process.
You will be sent a confirmation via email. If you do not receive one, check that you supplied the correct email address and also ensure that the e-mail has not been sent to your junk or spam folder.
If you have applied to a specific job, your resume/profile will be reviewed by a recruiter.
There are a few steps in our process. By clicking on status within your application, a definition of the current status is provided. Due to the volume of submissions that Dell receives, resumes are generally reviewed in groups, in the order of submission, until a satisfactory number of qualified applicants is obtained.
Due to the large volume of applications we receive, it is not possible for us to provide the name, telephone number or email address of recruiters or hiring managers. Recruiters will review resumes/profiles and will respond only to those external candidates who best match the qualifications of our openings. To ensure you do not miss opportunities, keep your candidate profile updated.
Screening for most positions is completed within the first four weeks after the position is posted. During that time, if you are selected to be screened, you will be contacted by a recruiter. All interviewed candidates will receive communication regarding the outcome within seven days of their interview. Candidates that are not selected for a screening or interview will not be contacted, but may be matched to other potential openings.
The Dell Talent Community is the perfect way for individuals to learn about new job opportunities as they open with Dell. It is easy, visit the site, create your profile and sign up for job alerts. Indicate the functions, locations and frequency and new positions will be shared based on the settings created.
Be prepared to provide specific examples of your behavior in particular situations and how the behaviors helped you develop in previous roles. Dell is also looking for examples of how you have demonstrated specific competencies needed for the role you are interviewing for. Be mindful that certain agreements with your current/previous employers could impact your ability to work at Dell.
