Why You Should Join HBCUConnect.com - Ask Philip who Now Works for Microsoft!

Why You Should Join HBCUConnect.com - Ask Philip who Now Works for Microsoft!
Posted By: Will Moss on September 12, 2020

Philip (on the right in the photo) was recently hired by Microsoft after having attended 2 or 3 HBCU CONNECT hiring events.

Remember, Microsoft is a huge company with many different hiring organizations within. Just about every HBCU CONNECT event is for a different hiring organization within Microsoft looking for different types of talent.

We just received a kind note from Philip after we invited him to another one of our upcoming hiring events. Unfortunately he would not be able to join us this time for our event, but the reason being, he was recently hired by Microsoft as a result of one of our past events!

So do not be discouraged if you are not hired right away after one of our hiring events. Just keep making sure you attend events in the future and keep updating your resume with new skills you are picking up. You might be a perfect fit for the next team hosting an event!

"Will,
I would like to thank you so much for all the hiring events that you have been organizing! I have participated in a few and now I have landed a job in Microsoft as Principal PM in the IC3 Team, that powers Teams and Skype with communication. It feels fantastic and thanks to the well organized events where Iíve met hiring managers in Microsoft, I felt very prepared for the interviews for this role. Thank you and keep up the great work with improving diversity in the companies.
Best regards,
Philip"

Thanks Philip and best of luck to you in your new career with a company that we are proud to call a partner!
