I'm sure this topic has been discussed before, but not by me. During my transition, I was asked a few times about the internal transfer process at Microsoft. Gretchen and many others have posted about the interview process for new (prospective) employees, but apparently there isn't much about the internal transfer process. I was surprised anyone was curious - anyone with much time under their belt at the big M knows how the process works, and I don't see how interesting it would be for someone external to MS. However, I aim to please, so here goes (don't say I didn't warn you...)
It's pretty much like the new employee interviews you've likely read about.
"Wow", you say - "tell me more"
At the risk of being redundant with what you already know, this is how I got from there to here in 5 easy steps.
That's it. I tried to leave out too many details, and this post is still too long.
