Microsoft Student Partners

Growing up, it was hard to find someone you can trust to offer a bit of advice on what some of the stumbling blocks that you may find in your future life and career.

Microsoft has stepped up and provided a Student Partners Site.  The program provides the following:

“​As a Microsoft Student Partner, you’ll be challenged to use your enthusiasm and knowledge to lead the technology discussion on your campus. You’ll demo the latest and greatest technologies, host events, and connect with other students and faculty to inspire them to create what’s next.”

The most critical offerings in my opinion is:

“Sure, you'll get access to Microsoft software, training and swag, but we think the real perks are the intangible ones. We're talking about the skills, connections and portfolio you'll build in this role. You'll get the inside scoop to our latest products and job opportunities, meet like-minded individuals from around the world, and boost your resume with invaluable real world skills.”

From this second paragraph, I noticed that there were there were great offerings but there were little details around who would provide what connections ?

I then noticed an email in my inbox! The MVPs were asked to provide mentoring to the students.

This is one of the best areas where I hope contribute as much as I can as I believe that this will help drive the wave of the future.

If there are comments around how to best help the students, I would be happy to provide review and post!

Thanks and please see how you can help this program!
