I am a fresh grad with 0 yoe. I'm planning to stay in PayPal for 2 years. I want to join Microsoft after these 2 years at L61. I know this is insane but I saw a couple of people doing this. I used to do competitive programming so I can solve LeetCode medium easily and Leetcode hard after thinking for some time. Apart from Leetcode what should I do to make myself as a strong engineer and make my resume strong so that it grabs attention of Microsoft recruiter.

TC: Base 11.5 lakhs INR+10Lakhs/2 joining bonus +10k/3 USD RSU

    I’d suggest getting a strong referral as well from somewhere within Microsoft. I’d also suggest reading papers about well known systems like Google RPC, Zookeeper, etc and system design blogs at Facebook, Google, etc. Within two years I’d try to work as hard as you can and get promoted as quickly as you can.

    Also I’d suggest forgetting about Microsoft for now and focusing on learning to do well at your job. And 2 years from now think about applying.

      Having contacts and referral usually makes it easier for your resume to land on hiring managers desk/email. Like @leetcode mentioned focus on learning as much as you can.
