Run by students, for students; it is our mission to provide insights to excite and inspire you to join our Intern, Graduate and Apprenticeship schemes at Microsoft. Maybe you’re in your second year of university, and considering a year’s placement in industry. Maybe you’re just about to graduate and you’re looking for a great graduate position to kickstart your career. Or maybe you have just finished GCSEs or A-levels and are interested in beginning your career in an apprenticeship role.
Through regular posts we will provide you with role insights so that you can identify your ideal job stream. We’ll provide a window into the culture at Microsoft, as well as showcasing the opportunities and involvement of interns, graduates and apprentices through diaries. If you’re energetic, motivated and passionate about technology, we’ll want you on board. “Be your future” will help equip you with the knowledge you need to submit the best possible application!
