Apply online

If you prefer, you can apply for jobs through Microsoft's hiring website. If you do decide to apply through their site instead of ours, make sure that you come back and tell us about your application so we can help you maintain an accurate log of where and when you applied.

The Microsoft Application Process

The online Microsoft application is one of the most applicant-friendly applications you will ever find. They ask you for only the most relevant personal information, and applying for multiple jobs at the same time is incredibly easy. If you already have your resume or CV prepared, you should easily be able to complete the application in just a few minutes.

For this application guide, we applied for a position as a Senior Engagement Manager. Your application experience may be a little bit different from ours depending on the position that you're applying for.

Before you can apply for a job at Microsoft, you will need to create a profile on their hiring site. You can then use this profile to apply instantly for any job that you are interested in. This is a great feature, and something that we hope more companies will take advantage of.

The fastest way to create your profile is to upload your resume or CV. We highly recommend this method, as a resume that's customized for the position that you are applying for is likely to be more effective than entering your personal information into generic application fields. However, if you don't have a resume on hand and you prefer to fill out an application instead, you have that option available to you.

Over the course of the application, Microsoft will ask for the following pieces of information: Your name, email address, phone number, home address, work history, education, and any relevant skills or qualifications that you may have. Before you begin the application, make sure that you have accurate work and education dates on hand. These will very likely be verified by human resources before you are offered a position, and inaccurate dates (even if they are off by only a month or two) can cause some speedbumps in the hiring process, and may reflect poorly on you as a candidate.

If you do choose to provide a resume instead of filling out the online job application, make sure that you take some time to customize it for Microsoft and the position that you are applying for. This is your chance to demonstrate a legitimate interest in the company, and communicate exactly how your previous experiences have made you a great candidate for the job that you are interested in. Yes, customizing your resume will take some work, but it will make you a more attractive candidate than you would otherwise be.

How to Get Updates on Your Microsoft Application

Microsoft does not provide automatic application updates at this time. If you have applied for a job with the company and would like to know where you stand, your best bet is to use LinkedIn to identify the most relevant recruiter. However, this will be a very hit or miss process, and getting any kind of real answer will likely be difficult. Be patient, and apply for any new positions you see that interest you.
