PowerToFly has been thrilled to partner with Microsoft on several past events. Check out photos from past gatherings HERE and HERE. Here's some attendee praise we received from a recent event with Microsoft:
- After this event with Microsoft I learned that work life balance really exists at this company.
- It was a great event! There is a clear need for networking events like this. I learned a lot about the team and felt like I had a great opportunity to connect with the members of the team and Microsoft recruiters in general. My favorite part was a panel format with Q&A.
If you are interested and available, Microsoft will be asking some attendees to interview for open roles on Friday, March 20th, the day after the event also at Microsoft's Reston office. Follow up interviews will take about two hours of your time and will be comprised of a technical interview and a hiring manager interview. Let us know when you register if you are available and if so, if you'd prefer the morning or the afternoon. If you are not available on 3/20, Microsoft and PowerToFly will work with you to find an alternate follow-up date.

The pandemic's impact on collaborative software company Quip's technical recruiting team started slowly.
First, their roster of engineering interviewers started to dwindle as rising concerns about COVID-19 led some of them to start working from home in January and February, remembers technical recruiter Grace Kim. "We needed to rethink how we conducted our onsite interviews with a limited pool," she says.
Brittany Boardman went to her first interview with Stack Overflow without expecting much.
"I'm not technical, I'm not an engineer. And I wasn't necessarily looking [for a new job]. But Stack just blew me away," says Brittany of her first exposure to the company behind the world's largest and most trusted software developer and technologist community. "The people I met that day seemed like they genuinely liked coming to work. There was this cohesive belief in what the company was doing. I was converted pretty quickly after that interview—Stack was somewhere I wanted to join."
