This is a question that comes up frequently. How do I get an internship, a job or anything at Microsoft as a student? Well there is a great program, the Microsoft Student Partner program. This is the foot in the door position. Students who do well here are more likely to get a full time job at Microsoft, but also anywhere. I have students who have started their own companies, work at Google, Lockheed Martin as well as Microsoft among several others. It is fairly easy to get into, but once you get in, you better work and treat it like a full time job. You can apply here: www.aka.ms/applyMSP2016
Now beyond this, I have some notes on my experience being a mentor for this program for 2 years.
