Summary


Working at MSFT was great. I was challenged every week and that really helped me grow. I was able to get a certification for a CAD software and everyone in and outside my team was super helpful. I wish COVID didn't exist so I was able to be on the campus and explore Seattle! I also LOVED that everyone I asked took time to talk to me and answer any questions whether they had anything to do with my project or not.
