  • You will be asked all types of questions, from "Tell me about your background" to "Tell me about a time when ..." to "Write a function that ...". Each of these is intended to provide insight into your fit with your prospective team as well as with Microsoft in general. An important component of how well you do or do not fit is the approach(es) you take as you solve a problem.

  • As well as considering Microsoft from a business perspective, it’s worth considering its culture and values too. Have a look at Microsoft’s annual corporate citizenship report, which includes details of its philanthropic work such as its employee giving campaign and its YouthSpark project to connect young people to education and employment opportunities. Compare its values to your own and highlight areas that you feel particularly strongly about

  • Here are five possible answers to the "why work here" question. Pick and choose from them, and expand with the facts of your particular situation. Thereby, you can demonstrate that you've done your research, your interest is real and your candidacy makes sense:

     • The philosophy and mission behind the organisation.
     
     • The training and development they offer.
  • For example, you might say: "Through interning at company X and fundraising for charity Y, I developed the ability to think of innovative and cost-effective solutions to problems.

  • the player taking the kick-off must kick the ball forward (he or she cannot kick it back to a teammate).
  • (making sure the ball rolls slightly over -- not behind -- the halfway line); his teammate can then play the ball backwards as the ball is now officially in play
