Microsoft Networking Event

Previous Microsoft/ HBCU Connect Networking Event

Charlotte, NC — In partnership with Microsoft’s IT Business, HBCUconnect.com is offering black technical professionals in Charlotte, North Carolina, the opportunity to meet with representatives from Microsoft to learn more about career opportunities, network with their peers, as well as open up one on one discussions with Microsoft team members that could lead to interviews as soon as the next day for high paying tech careers!

HBCU Connect has partnered with Microsoft for several other reruitment efforts in the past, hosting a similar event last year for the Cloud & Enterprise group, also at the National Society of Black Engineers conference, and recently at a private VIP event for Black HR professionals in the D.C, Maryland, and Virginia region.

The event for technical professionals on May 19th will target software engineers, service/network engineers, Program Managers and experienced IT/Security professionals in the region. The decision to host the event in the Charlotte area was based largely on the large population of black technical professionals that are members of www.HBCUConnect.com.

“We expect to see 65 to 75 professionals in attendance that will be looking to land interviews with Microsoft leadership, as well as learn more about what life at Microsoft is like as an African American,” said Will Moss, CEO of HBCU Connect. “What is really exciting about this particular event, is that Microsoft will be setting up interviews with some of the event attendees as soon as the next day, right after the event! This shows how serious Microsoft is about hiring talent from the African American professional community.”

This will be a great opportunity for African Americans working in software, networking, or IT to make new connections, expand their network, and explore new career opportunities.

The event will be held on May 19th from 5pm to 8pm and will be RSVP only. Once attendance is confirmed, the exact location of the event will be shared as well as details on parking and an agenda for the evening.
