  • Blog Post: Interns -- the intern experience in Office

    We’re actively hiring interns from the college campuses we visit. I wanted to use this as an opportunity to talk about what it is like to be an intern in Office. You can read about the specifics of the intern program on the intern web site: http://www.microsoft.com/college/ip_overview.mspx . You can...
  • Blog Post: congratulations Will -- final project presentation

    Today Will, one of our interns from the Boston area did a demo of his summer's project. He did a great job and the project ended up quite good. He had a lot to learn this summer as he had to wrap himself around Office "12" and learn the ins and outs of the *new* SharePoint, InfoPath, and some new...
  • Blog Post: Intern culture -- two great video examples

    Just wanted to point folks to two great views of intern culture caught on video. On Channel9 you can find interviews with a bunch of interns in real-world discussion. On iFilm, a group of interns chose to document their summer by creating a most unique music video . I'm already starting to miss...
  • Blog Post: Intern last days: cool projects and fun photos

    The interns are starting to return back to school. We had an amazing group of interns this year from over 50 different schools. About half are going to be seniors and the other half are going to be juniors or sophomores. The projects folks work on are totally mainstream work. When Office “12” ships...
  • Blog Post: Tracking code "churn" -- cool intern project

    Our interns are wrapping up over the next few weeks. The projects that interns work on are critical parts of shipping Office and this year is no exception. We’ve had our interns hard at work on getting ready for beta this fall. A big part of the internship is putting a bow around your project and showing...
  • Blog Post: On juggling, unicycles, and jousting

    BusinessWeek has an article this week about the hiring binge at some companies in the bay area are doing (ok, Yahoo! and Google). The article raises a number of the standard “new high-tech hiring” clichés that are worth talking about because they seem to repeat themselves. Let’s go back to 1989 –...
  • Blog Post: College Hire and Intern Fair (Photos)

    Seattle, 7/27 6:30PM Just got back from the annual College Hire and Intern Fair. Every year we hold a big bbq for all the interns and college hires who started this summer. Today was a beautiful day for the event (ok a bit hot). And also a bit of a celebration because Beta1 of Windows Vista was released...
  • Blog Post: Thoughts on the first few years of a new hire at Microsoft

    I wanted to write some thoughts on career progression for new hires at Microsoft. Up front I should probably say that I am not trying to sell folks on Microsoft, but trying to tell it like it is. Folks who know me often accuse me of being too honest. What I would say to people looking to enter the job...
  • Blog Post: Changing career paths at Microsoft -- short answer

    Today I was talking with an intern who was having a good, but not great, summer working on one of our teams. He felt that perhaps he would be more successful if he was involved with testing more than development. His question was "is this really possible"? It is good question. Since Microsoft is growing...
  • Blog Post: Q&A Session today -- "Fascinating technology"

    Today the interns got together and I got to host a q&a session, which is always a highlight of the summer for me. Beforehand I get emailed tons of questions from our 100+ interns working on Office and Information Worker software. There are many cool themes to the questions. One question I loved...
