  • Hii friends,

     I have completed my bachelors in the field of computer science I want to pursue my career in Microsoft.I have done few paper presentations in my BS career.I want to know how can i get into microsoft .I have done 4 projects under ASp.NET

    List of projects are

    (Patient Management system, webApp that can send SMS anywhere,Online examination with proper countdown and generating report, ATM card processing)

    I have done all these projects on my own...So i have detail knowledge how it works.

  • It's not about what technologies you know, it's about how proficient you are with these technologies i.e. how much experience you’ve had with using these technologies.

     

    There's a huge difference between knowledge and experience and it is very easy to spot someone who has done some reading/study over someone who’s actually had experience using a technology.  That’s why I (and from what I’ve heard Microsoft) give people a practical exercise to complete during the interview process.

    Well thanks for the help...actually I have developed a software or a program about which i discussed with an HR of microsoft. He liked the idea very much and wants to see my resume.However I really dont want to impair my chances of getting in Microsoft so I want to make sure that my resume impress them ,thats why I want to know which are the technologies i should know (I know ASP.NET,MVC,Silverlight,SQL,MySQL,C,C++,C#)

  • The answer to the question, "which are the technologies that I should know" is those that are in demand by Microsoft (or other employers). You can see which are in demand by looking at the jobs that they have on offer.

    Good luck! I hope that you get the job you want.
