Since Microsoft was founded by Bill Gates and Paul Allen in the mid-'70s, we’ve looked to the future and the part we might play in it.
This continuous projection has been key to our success, and an integral part of our market strategies. For we build products and deliver services that anticipate what people and businesses will need to fulfil their potential. Not just today, but the day after, and the one after that, too.
At Microsoft, you’ll have an amazing range of opportunities. You might become an expert in a particular field or build proficiencies across many areas. You might be an individual contributor or become a manager.
Because we have so many kinds of jobs in so many different places, you can stay in one building, city, or country, or you can cross borders—in person, or virtually.
Your career and professional development is a partnership between you and your manager, reinforced by our numerous career resources. And as much as we’re here to support you, we believe your career is an individual adventure. You drive your career development plan while your manager assists and coaches you, and we provide a framework with the tools and resources you need to succeed.
One thing is certain: You’ll never stand still at Microsoft.
Students and graduates alike can choose long-term career paths within these three key areas. And while you’ll join us in a specific role, it won’t place any limitations on your chosen disciplines. Sales—Selling is an art, requiring self-expression, imagination and passion—not to mention real business acumen.
It’s no wonder: Our professionals sell solutions, not just applications. They operate like a consultancy, but with a delivery element added on. So if you’re passionate about technology and thrive on interpreting people’s business needs, then look no further.
Technical—When you work for Microsoft, you engage with the world’s most successful technologies. This could take the form of development work, but there’s also a variety of opportunities available in areas such as account management and technical specialisms linked to sales, evangelism, and consultancy. As one of our consultants, you could specialise in helping some of the U.K.’s largest corporations get the most from our technologies and solutions.
Marketing—Over the years, we’ve created radical and highly effective marketing strategies for everything from home entertainment products to business solutions, mobile devices, and Windows products. So if you’re interested in connecting people around the world with the latest technologies, building productive relationships, and creating new business opportunities, there’s no better place to develop your marketing career.
