Microsoft Aspire - What is it and how can you get involved?
As females working at a technology company, people often assume that we need to be exceptional tech savvy, but in reality not many of us are! At Microsoft you will meet people with a very diverse range of educational backgrounds and interests.
Of course there are parts of this industry that require a high level of technological understanding, however we are working hard to send the message to young females that there is a lot more to this industry than programming and coding.
Love being creative in Marketing?
Get a thrill from making sales?
Want to get involved with programming?
Interested in Real Estate?
How about designing some new characters for the latest Xbox games?
There is something at Microsoft for everyone and Aspire are aiming to make sure that everyone truly understands the potential that Microsoft can offer you as an apprentice, intern, MACH and beyond.
Watch this short video to get a glimpse of what Aspire aims to achieve and how we will try to get there:
Want to get involved?
As you may have seen in our past blogs, the Microsoft Aspire team held an event at our UK HQ to give a group of young women an insight into what life is really like at Microsoft and help them start their career journey with us. We had some amazing feedback and the event was highly recommended by all - so we decided to hold another one in April!
This event will be held our brand new offices in Kingdom Street, and will again give female undergraduates to explore life as a Microsoft employee. For more information and to register, click here.
