We continue to hear from our partners that their #1 priority is finding and hiring qualified talent. The demand is high, but the supply is short. Well there is good news to report.
Microsoft is rolling out a community initiative designed to connect Microsoft partners and customers with qualified students for entry-level and internship positions. The Microsoft Students to Business (S2B) program will provide skilled workers to Microsoft partners and establish the skill requirements to fuel innovation and enable employability of the next generation. The objective of the S2B program is to inspire local businesses to communicate the competency requirements for new talent, to evaluate the skills of students ready for an entry-level job or internship and collaborate with Microsoft to provide the curriculum and training needed to ensure students are prepared to meet their company’s needs.
