Congrats to Michael Barnes for Landing a Dream Job at Microsoft After Attending a Recent HBCU CONNECT Hiring Event!
Posted By: Will Moss on July 06, 2022

Meet Michael, an Engineering undergrad degree holder and MBA grad from the DC Maryland Virginia (DMV) area with over 10 years of industry experience.

Michael is also an African American "diverse" career candidate that is a welcomed member of HBCUConnect.com even though he did not attend an HBCU.



Michael attended our Microsoft Office Experiences Hiring event earlier this year and recently started with Microsoft in April!

Michael is now a Product Manager within the OXO organization enjoying a new career and was even able to stay in the DMV and work remote even though his team is in the Seattle area.

Let's have a quick conversation with Michael and talk about his experience attending one of our hiring events, interviewing and then being hired at Microsoft!

If you'd like to attend a future event, sign up on our website today!
