Set for Success: Microsoft meets with Students

Microsoft presents "Meet Microsoft" on campusCareer and Professional Development Services (CPDS) invited Microsoft to campus to host an invitation-only dinner for students, where representatives discussed Microsoft’s company mission and corporate culture. Microsoft recruiters emphasized the company’s focus on diversity, creativity, and the ability for every employee to bring his or her true self to work each day. Microsoft’s philosophy involves appreciating individual differences and skills, and focusing on team collaboration, communication, passion, and potential.

Recruiters also provided details about upcoming internship opportunities for second- and third-year students through their Microsoft Aspire Experience, as well as their internship program Explore Microsoft for first- and second-year students. 

CPDS invited students recommended by deans and professors, and more than 64 students attended the dinner. They were offered the opportunity to have one-on-one conversations with the recruiting team and learn about future job roles, such as program manager, software engineer, and customer-facing technology specialist.  

These company events can set students on the path to success both before and after graduation. “Students come away with an awareness of possible internships or part-time/full-time job opportunities, and what the application process is like,” said Director of Career and Professional Development Services Beverly McLean. “They also learn about what skills the company is seeking, who is successful, and most importantly, what the culture is like at the company.”

CPDS is setting up more meet and greets with notable companies. Nike,, and Kaiser are slated to host events on campus this fall.

Nike - Tuesday, October 15 - October 30
Kaiser - TBD
