JOIN POWERTOFLY'S FIRST VIRTUAL EVENT FOR OUR COMMUNITY IN COSTA RICA! If you are a skilled tech professional and you would like to attend this event, please send your name and LinkedIn URL to firstname.lastname@example.org to be considered for an invite.
Microsoft has partnered with PowerToFly to present an intimate virtual event. Hear from a panel of business & technology leaders from the Microsoft Customer Service & Support (CSS) and SMC Digital Sales organizations, who will discuss their career journeys, current projects, answer audience questions and more.
The CSS and SMC Digital Sales organizations are seeking to grow their teams as part of a big tech transformation. This requires team members who are customer-centric, problem-solvers, strong collaborators, and risk-takers that embrace a challenger mindset. If this sounds like you, and you're interested in opportunities with Microsoft, we'd love to have you join our virtual event.
Join our virtual event hosted on Microsoft Teams on Tuesday, 17 March, at 5:30pm CST.

PowerToFly has been thrilled to partner with Microsoft on several past events. Check out photos from a past gathering in Seattle HERE. Here's what one attendee: "I brought my daughter who is also in IT. It was a wonderful evening for both of us. We loved the panel and they did make us feel that MS is now a more inviting place for women. We are now seeking employment at MS. The greatest thing about the evening was the opportunity to hang out with a room full of women IT professionals. How refreshing!"

Jasmine Harvey is pursuing her MBA while working full-time as a buyer for Viasat, a global communications and satellite internet company. Balancing home, work, and school while maintaining a 3.9 grade point average has been quite a challenge. Jasmine had a perfect 4.0 until she took one of the hardest classes in her program, Managerial Economics and Global, during this COVID pandemic. She finished a full 15 percentage points above the class average, but was still 0.6 points away from an "A".
