Sun Microsystems is certainly a technology company at heart, but because of their size, their entry-level job offerings extend well beyond technical positions.

So what? I’ve become a mild Twitter addict. I keep finding internships by scanning tweets and following the links in them, but, unfortunately, I can’t say the same about entry-level jobs. The term entry-level is reserved mostly for job postings, while the word internship is near universal – so it’s used conversationally (like on Twitter). Yesterday, I found a link to a post by a Sun Microsystems employee who is looking for two interns. Her post led us to Sun’s main Careers site, which truly impressed us – especially because of the way that they present their entry-level job offerings.

The Sun Also Rises

You’ve probably heard of Sun Microsystems, but I’ll bet that you’re not quite sure what they do. It’s actually quite likely that you’re using their technology right now, and you don’t even know it. Their About page says that Sun provides “software, systems, services, and microelectronics that power everything from consumer electronics, to developer tools and the world’s most powerful datacenters.” They’re a huge company, with 33,350 employees worldwide and a ranking of 187 on the Fortune 500. They’re certainly a technology company at heart, but because of their size, their entry-level job offerings extend well beyond technical positions.

Looking for Bright New Grads

It’s pretty cool to find a big company with a blogger who posts about the company’s jobs, since it’s usually smaller startups that use social media for recruiting. Our first impression was to be totally impressed with Sun, but we were doubly impressed when we visited their main Careers site. It is by far the most usable Jobs site that we have come across yet. They have a Student Employment Zone, a Recruiting Blog, and the best job search feature that we’ve ever seen on a corporate site. All you have to do is check a box, and all of their jobs for new grads (all 167 of them) appear. Check another box and you only get entry-level jobs that are located abroad (none available right now). There’s no need for us to list specific entry-level jobs at Sun Microsystems, since should have no problem finding something that interests you – they even organize their search results by department. They are so easy to navigate!

    I live in Colorado where Sun has one of its major offices. One of my best friends worked for Sun for a year as a campus recruiter for their campus rep program and as an intern organizer managing the internship program for Sun nation-wide. His dad also worked for Sun and was one of their top salesmen last year. Both of them really enjoyed the work environment there. My friend has since gone to grad school on the East Coast and is looking for government-related internships. His dad decided the sales quota expectations were going to be too high after his super-successful year and moved on to another tech company.

    My warning with Sun is that it frequently has lay-offs. Sun just cut 20% of its workforce this fall. However, that isn’t just the economic climate. This is a common occurance. Sun will hire a lot of people, get to the end of the quarter, and realize they’re in the red, then slash jobs right away. From the inside it’s been criticized as just poor management.

    I’d say if you’re looking for an entry level job at Sun, they are there to be had and people like working at Sun. But, if you’re hoping to stick around for a while or looking for a stable job, Sun might not be your best choice.
