Hi!


Glad you asked! Microsoft is a tech company in itself. They develop, manufactures, licenses, supports and sells computer software, consumer electronics and personal computers and services.


There are some positions there that would require you to program. However, they have other positions as well, such as HR, recruiting, etc. This is most likely the case for most companies out there.


Does this help answer your question?

As Samson mentioned above, Microsoft are a huge technology company that develops, manufactures, licenses, supports and sells computer software, consumer electronics and personal computers and services. You will probably know them best from their computer software Microsoft Windows, but they also have involvement in creating mobile phones, computer hardware such as Xbox and even computer games.


They’ll have thousands of employees that work for them in many different disciplines/areas of the business such as designers, engineers, producers, manufacturers, marketing managers, and various different support/operational functions.

Thank you comment icon Microsoft has an ambition mission: Our mission is to empower every person and every organization on the planet to achieve more. The company website provides a very good overview of the company - how it is organized, what it sells, its global locations. https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/about/company Robert Jungerhans

Hermione’s Answer

If you're interested in Hospitality and technology companies, you might look into Corporate Event Planning. All industries have events and conventions for professionals to meet, network, and learn the latest in the industry. There's a whole field for people to plan and manage these events. You might look online for companies in your area that contract to manage events as a service to get an idea of what the job does.

Event planning requires a high level of planning and organizational skills, and attention to detail. There's a lot that can go wrong in an event, so thinking through every detail end to end in advance is a good skill. If this sounds like something you're interested in, Project Managment skills are very useful in this, and many other industries.

I trained as a project manager through https://rmcls.com/ and got my Project Management certification from PMI https://www.pmi.org/. The training and test are demanding, but very useful skills for any profession that's heavy on organization and planning.

Hermione recommends the following next steps:

Look online to research Corporate Event Planning companies.
Look into Project Management.

Eric’s Answer

As many have stated, Microsoft is a large Technology Company with many many opportunities for employees. Personally, I've worked there for 15 years and have had numerous roles ranging from a Sales person in Software to a Channel Development Mgr in Hardware. One of the best things about working here is that you have the opportunity to move into different areas, whether that's sales, marketing, development, engineering or business planning, just to name a few.
