Just got invitation for Microsoft hiring event. I was wondering:
-- are these hiring events worth going to?
-- does Microsoft only do these hiring events, or also regular individual onsite interviews?
The experience was great. Treated well. I did not get the job. I did have some awkwardness when asked a variety of diversity and inclusion related questions. I had not anticipated those questions and tried to be fairly neutral but I think they needed a impactful story from me. The business and technical questions were appropriate and the discussion enjoyable. I was turned down I think related to my performance related to diversity.
