Microsoft Power to Fly event

2022-07-19 Microsoft Power to Fly event

I got my job at Microsoft by NETWORKING.

Several years ago, a girlfriend invited me to a Microsoft and Power to Fly networking event with free food and drink ๐Ÿท

If you know me, you know that free is for me so, of course, I had to attend.

๐Ÿท I showed up.
๐Ÿท I ate food and drank wine.
AND…

๐ŸŽค I networked.
๐ŸŽค I asked lots of questions.
๐ŸŽค I paid close attention and discreetly took notes about everyone I met.

When I got home…
๐Ÿ‘‹ I connected with people on LinkedIn.
๐Ÿ‘‹ I sent follow-up messages.
๐Ÿ‘‹ I researched and connected with even more Microsoft people on LinkedIn.

THEN…
๐Ÿ“ž I got a call from a Microsoft recruiter.
๐Ÿ“ž I scheduled a phone screen and interviews.
๐Ÿ“ž And I got the offer!

This time, at Microsoft’s recent event with Power to Fly, I was on the other side of the table.

NETWORKING is the real deal!

Thank you to Microsoft for believing there is diverse talent in our local community and for taking the time to find US ๐Ÿคฉ
