Get On - a new initiative from the Microsoft

 Get On launches today, Wednesday 7th November!

Get inspired, get skilled and get a job

Get On is a new project from Microsoft to help 300,000 16-24 year olds in the UK get inspired, get skilled and get a job over the next three years, through a combination of education and training, apprenticeships and work experience.

Because Get On is about and for young people, Microsoft’s own team of interns play an important role by sharing experiences and knowledge. As Microsoft's youth, we know just how hard it can be filling out application forms, getting through interviews and finding a job. That’s why we want to help 16-24 year olds get inspired by telling them about our experiences, giving CV and interview tips and conducting free workshops on how best to get a job.

As part of today’s launch, we have some very exciting goings on in London, all of which will be delivered directly to your newsfeeds via Twitter and Facebook. Brighten your Wednesday with fun facts and a real VIP appearance later today. And today is just the beginning...
