What Recruiters Think…

“Microsoft is number 1 Undergraduate Employer because we take our role in shaping and forming the future of business and the business of people very seriously. Our Undergraduate programme isn’t a tick in the box exercise for us to look good on paper. We believe in people and the power they can have when they are learning, discovering their own capabilities and using the potential they have; to achieve more than they thought they could. The working environment and amazing culture of Microsoft empowers us all to get the best out of each other- intern or not. Microsoft is second to none if you are looking for a place to push your boundaries and get set for long lasting career success. It’s here if you want it.”

– Mariyah Ackaa, Regional Delivery Manager (UK, France & Germany).

‘Push your boundaries and get set for long lasting career success’

“Interns bring immense value to our business – they add a perspective that we most likely don’t have. We see them as an asset which we try to leverage everyday. In our team, interns are doing their day to day roles but also work on projects that challenge them and help them develop. They don’t wait to be asked because they know that no idea is too bold. In fact, the bolder, the better! Every year I am yet more amazed at the high level of contribution this group makes to our team in such a short space of time, we are fortunate to have them. We also try to create an experience here at Microsoft for this group which will be supportive to their education and also memorable; in both a business and “fun” perspective. We are very pleased how the team worked last and this year so far.”

– Ravleen Beeston, Head of Sales, Bing UK, Microsoft Search Advertising.
