Human Resources Rotational Program (HRRP)

Dell has more than 1,000 human resources practitioners in over 35 countries that create and shape activities that benefit our customers and shareholders. Through the HRRP program, Dell is building a team of well-rounded HR professionals who can innovate, think strategically, execute ideas and help lead the future of Dell. During the two-year program, participants experience three distinct roles within the HR function, including one rotation in the Center of Excellence, an HR field position and a business-aligned position. Each team member will also develop a strategic project or activity to further develop HR and business acumen. Participants have the ability to maximize their career potential in HRRP by:

  • Building a solid understanding of Dell and the HR function
  • Attaining a wide breadth of job experience in an accelerated time frame
  • Developing a global network of Dell professionals
  • Gaining exposure to executive management
  • Enhancing communication and presentation skills
  • Learning project management as an effective HR professional
  • Understanding and partnering with the business to drive key initiatives
  • Growing leadership skills through rotation assignments and stretch projects

We value breadth of experience and encourage team members to develop a broad spectrum of HR knowledge. No matter what your role or level, the structure of our HR team and the scope of our work create an environment where you partner with our function and the business to lead impactful initiatives.

We are actively seeking HRRP participants who are working to achieve a master’s degree or MBA and have a proven record of academic achievement, teamwork, leadership abilities and strong interpersonal/communication skills. First round interviews take place during on-campus recruiting visits and final interviews are held at our headquarters in Round Rock, TX. Look for program positions on your university job board!
