Microsoft & SAP

August 2017

As part of our professional development events, we collaborated with Microsoft and SAP to provide students with information on various industry opportunities available to tech students, especially women in tech. The Q&A session with Microsoft really opened their eyes to all the possibilities that lay before them, showing them that taking a tech pathway doesn’t restrict them to just working with software. The recruiters, Weng and his accompanied interns, Shaff, Ben and Esma gave detailed recounts of their experiences working in Microsoft. They emphasised the personal growth that came with taking a chance in something you really want to do. Despite being a recruitment event, the students were all left inspired by the speakers. They were encouraged to not only to be confident in pursuing their goals, but also to carefully consider how their values may or may not align with the companies they wish to work for.
