Filling a Workforce Pipeline with Diverse Talent

Redmond, Wa - As described in Microsoft's Vision and Strategy for the Future, diversity is a key business principle at Microsoft and in working with its diversity partners, we are witnesses to the execution of this vision. 

Starting last year, Microsoft Corporation launched a series of recruiting and networking events that have since grown in numbers and recruiting partners. The most recent one happened last month and offered resume reviews, meet the recruiters/partners, skill improvement sessions and on-the-spot interviews.  This was also the first time where State Farm joined as a presenting organization. As far as careers, recruiting focused on the following functional areas: Finance, Marketing, Software Development / Computer Science, Microsoft IT,  Supply Chain, Operations, Insurance Agency Recruiting and MBA and College Recruiting.

So thanks to all that came out and participated and we all look forward to our next event on June 4th, the Women in Naaap (WIN!) Conference. If you had one day for yourself, this is the day! So register to WIN! Flash Scholarships and Child care available. All are welcome.

Past recruiting events: November 2010 | April 2010
