How do you apply at Microsoft?

    So lets see....

    We've had about 5/6 people from C9 apply at Microsoft and get hired. Is there a secret? Is there a secret URL that overrides the regular careers.microsoft.com website to get your resume at the front?

    I have a feeling that the Careers website is just a huge spam catcher...so anything that gets processed through it gets ignored....or maybe it's just me...I dunno.

    Personal contacts.

    Go to a seminar/conference/open house/whatever and talk to either a recruiter or someone that has "recruiting powar". Rightfully impress them and do not give up easily.

    Don't be too concerned if your emails are not promptly answered, because the email traffic in here is... "something different" Smiley Eventually they'll get back to you.
