All a prospective employee needed was a keen desire to solve problems and keep up with the fast changing world of technology. This fits in quite well with Mastek’s PACTS (Passionate, Accountable, Collaborative, Transparent and Sustainable) values system. If you’re interested in succeeding at a graduate programme for a company that places a high degree of emphasis on character, here are five steps to help you do just that.
