I've got a first round on-campus interview with Microsoft next week. Aiming for a Technical Program/Product Manager type role. Been reading Cracking the Coding Interview and Cracking the PM Interview. Any tips for what to expect and how to prepare?

TC: 30k in student loans.

    I am currently a TPM, interviewed last October. I think if you read Cracking the PM interview you are already ahead. Apart from that make sure to do research on Microsoft as a company to understand the sentiment that the employees have towards leadership over the years. In addition if you have a good pulse on the culture and how TPMs work with SWEs you will have good talking points that will definitely improve your odds. Moral of the story is, as a TPM you need to be technical, but also focus on appealing to your audience in the interview.
