Another HBCU CONNECT Member Hired at Microsoft After Recent Virtual Hiring Event!
Posted By: Will Moss on June 07, 2020

Another HBCU CONNECT member was recently hired at Microsoft!

Kofi attended our virtual hiring event sponsored by Microsoft's Teams group in April of this year. The event was supposed to be a physical event in Austin, Texas but due to COVID-19, we hosted the event virtually.

Many people wondered if Microsoft would still continue to hire during the crisis. We knew they were hiring, but this is one of the many confirmations we have received that make these events worthwhile!

We wanted to share a quote from Kofi that we just received.


Hey Will,
Thanks so much for everything you do and specifically what you did for me.

You invited me to a Microsoft hiring event and I got the offer.
I just completed my 3rd week. Things are going so well. Super glad to be working with a company of this magnitude.

Keep up the great work 👍.
You're doing a lot to set the world right.

Thank you Will for helping me find work security during the Covid-19 pandemic.

As the economy began to shut down I received a communication from HBCU CONNECT about a hiring event for Microsoft. Will made me and many others feel comfortable taking on this opportunity by making it clear to us what would be expected of us in the interviews.

Taking a step back and looking at HBCU Connect and magnitude of opportunities they provide is genuinely inspiring.

Will sees the big picture and he's going to make a difference.
✌🏾

Kofi S.


Thanks Kofi and congratulations!
