Hear from Our Grads






Nathan - Associate Technical Consultant
"DXC Technology has given me the breadth and depth of the IT industry. I was shown how quickly systems had to be deployed, scaled and eventually automated; thus starting a journey through cloud IaaS, PaaS and SaaS. I'm very grateful to be working in such a space with very exciting and knowledgeable people and managers to help guide me." 






Daria - Associate Sales Representative
“The initial onboarding and training went smoothly, and regular calls with my managers and mentors really helped me to learn about the business and become part of the team despite starting in the middle of the pandemic and working from home. I am so grateful for all the time and effort people I work with take in helping me become part of the DXC community.” 






Wanshu - Associate Release Manager
"The graduate program had provided me with the opportunity to meet new peers and allowed me to put my knowledge into practice." 


Inclusion and Diversity
Diversity is reflected in our inclusive environment that embraces many cultures, backgrounds, values and ideas offered by our global workforce.
DXC Technology is truly a global company: Our employees live in more than 70 countries, speak multiple languages and work with customers on almost every continent.
We believe in equality. Our inclusive culture powers our results, and together, we drive the world's most innovative technology.
We are proud of our inclusive and diverse culture.
Our inclusion and diversity mission
At DXC, we harness the unique contributions of our people to give us our edge. We value every idea and the person behind it. Our inclusive culture powers our results, and the company grows only if our people grow.
We believe in equality, and our position as a global technology leader allows us to serve diverse customers and play a leadership role in the communities we serve. Together, we drive the world’s most innovative technology.
Top 5 reasons why inclusion and diversity matter to us:
  • Drives business: We can more effectively build products for and market to consumers from diverse backgrounds when we, ourselves, are diverse.
  • Fuels innovation: Invention is the by-product of an inclusive, diverse workplace. Behind every one of our ideas is a team of people that examines challenges from every possible angle.
  • Importance to our customers: As a supplier we must demonstrate our actions and commitment to responsible inclusion and diversity practices to retain our customers and win their support.
  • Attracts and retains the best employees: When our internal population reflects the external population, we can bring in the best talent available worldwide. Businesses that foster inclusive workplaces see lower turnover rates than those that do not value a diverse workforce.
  • Improves the communities we work and live in: We apply our talent, technology, and partnerships to improve communities and drive positive social change around the world.

Our commitment to diversity
DXC is an equal opportunity employer. We welcome the many dimensions of diversity.
