- My summarized work experience is more than 2 years and I graduated from my Masters 2021. Can I apply for the year 2022 start of the SKF Global Graduate Programme?
Yes, you can still apply for the Programme! The limitation in work experience (“0-2 years of work experience post Masters graduation”) refers to your work experience after you finalized and graduated from your Masters. If you for example worked for 2 years before you started your studies and/or have been working alongside your studies, this is only meritorious, and does not count as “post Masters experience”. You can apply to the SKF Global Graduate Programme until 2 years after your Masters graduation.

- Is there a possibility to rotate to other functions and/or countries during the SKF Global Graduate Programme?
The SKF Global Graduate Programme offers three (3) rotations, and each rotation is approximately five months. We want to offer a broadness in our Programme where the Global Graduates will get both international and cross-functional experience and learnings. Therefore, the first rotation is carried out in the home unit, whereas the other two rotations will be carried out abroad. During at least one (if not two) rotations the Global Graduate will be working in another business area/ function.
- How are the rotations decided?
The SKF Global Graduate Programme is very much individualized and the rotations plan for each Graduate is based on the Global Graduate´s interests, strengths and individual development plan. Since the Graduates are working in projects to make an actual difference during their rotations, there should also be a need from the business for the project to be carried out.

The SKF Global Graduate Programme is truly global and the countries that our Global Graduates have been rotating to has varied a lot. To name a few examples we´ve had Global Graduates rotating to Canada, Brazil, China, Indonesia, India, Australia, Germany, Italy, Austria and many more. Since 2017 our Global Graduates have rotated to no less than 35 countries worldwide.
