  • Blog Post: Recruiting Trip

    It was a very hectic week for me. I had been on one of the recruiting trips to a school on east coast. Other than the rough schedule, I learnt a lot of how things work and also made me remember where I came from and how I used to think just 3 years ago. To start with I would like to encourage students...

    If you've been working (or idling) for a year or more since you hung up your full time academic cap and gown, the microsoft recruiting machine considers you an industry candidate. Many of my comments in the prior post about campus candidates will apply to industry candidates as well. In fact, I would...
  • Blog Post: Preparing for Technical Positions at MS: part 1: college campus route

    Matt asked about how to prepare for a technical position at Microsoft. Since there are two separate recruiting engines at Microsoft, I’m going to break my comments up into college candidates and industry candidates to match the paths that people typically enter the company. College Campus Candidates...
