Had a great experience with Mike, a community development specialist for Microsoft. He taught our Pathways Academy of Technology and Design and Bulkeley High School students about the different job and training opportunities through Microsoft. He gave a history and highlights of Microsoft’s work since its founding in 1975. He gave tips on how to prepare for their interviews. At the end, we even got to play a round of jeopardy and some students tried out the store’s virtual reality technology. One of our students, Ta-John, said that this was his favorite field trip yet.
Thanks to Junior Achievement of Southwest New England for setting this job shadow day up!
