    Application

    The process took 7+ weeksinterviewed at Microsoft (Reading, England).

    Interview

    The process is fairly standard, consisting of:
    - Online application
    - Online tests
    - Prerecorded video interview
    - Skype interview
    + Assessment Centre
        - Team tasks
        - Team presentation
        - 1:2 interview (experience and soft skills)
        - Individual presentation
        - 1:2 interview (technical)

    The Microsoft team were very friendly and the process wasn't as daunting as it may appear. My advice is to be yourself and show your passion for technology! A little revision on MS doesn't go a miss either.
