If you’ve ever wanted to work with tech giant Microsoft, here’s your chance to hear from the recruiters in person at a special ACS event.

Tech professionals and students will have the opportunity to hear from Microsoft’s Michelle Sandford, Development Engagement Lead for Emerging Communities, and Isha Prabhakar, University Recruiting Account Manager, APAC and Australia, who will answer questions such as:

· What does a day in the life of a Microsoft employee look like?

· What are the current roles in demand at Microsoft and what level of experience do you need to be considered?

· What are some good tips to stand out from the crowd during the application and interview process?

· The career pathways within Microsoft once you're in.

ACS CEO Chris Vein said ACS’s members had asked for support in securing new jobs, and from employers looking for IT workers – a situation in which ACS is uniquely positioned to assist both.

“Applying for and working in a top 10 tech company can be an intimidating and daunting task, when it doesn’t necessarily have to be," Vein said, “so, our upcoming ‘How to get a job at Microsoft’ event puts our members in front of Microsoft recruiters and staff to alleviate any barriers and concerns in applying for a role at Microsoft.

“This is only the start of many other series of events to come that supports our members and our tech partners”.
