    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Microsoft in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied online just a week before the deadline closed, I have just completed the recorded video interview but am still waiting to hear back as of yet. I was not completely prepared for the specifics of the questions however, the online resources on the Microsoft website, if you Google it, do help you understand the kind of content they are looking for in their responses.
