Microsoft Work Experience Week

Microsoft is launching their ‘Work Experience Week’, from 10th – 13th May 2021. Students in years 9 & 10 will be able to gain valuable insights about what Microsoft does, what roles the company has to offer for those in early-in-careers and have the opportunity to engage with Xbox Academy hosted by the Microsoft Experience Centre to learn more about the fascinating world of game development.

Over the course of 4 days, students will dive deep into the heart of Microsoft, experiencing the highly dynamic technology industry which aims to help meet the 6th Gatsby Benchmark of experiencing workplaces. What better way to do it than with Microsoft? A fully virtual setup will allow students to access our Work Experience Week from either classrooms or the comfort of their own home.

What to expect…
In the 4-day program, each student will complete:
• A deep dive into game development by Xbox Academy and Rare Gaming
• Industry work experience activities
• LinkedIn profile building sessions
• Various Early-in-Career activities
• Interview skills workshops.

If your students or children wish to be part of our Work Experience Week, please register your interest with us at AskEduUK@Microsoft.com with a number of attendees.
