Microsoft believes that diversity enriches our performance and products, the communities where we live and work, and the lives of our employees. This program is part of our recruiting and career development strategy related to diversity and inclusion. Our ultimate goal is to increase the percentage of employees with disabilities at Microsoft.

We are continually looking to increase the diversity of our workforce and this is one of our many diversity efforts. This particular multi-day program is specific to people on the autism spectrum.

We also host Microsoft Ability Hiring Events as an opportunity for candidates with disabilities to attend a one-day interview structured to provide an inclusive experience. If you are interested in applying for our Ability Event and an inclusive application experience, please email dcareers@microsoft.com.

Resumes are screened for the skills and qualifications necessary in the identified open roles. A set of eligible candidates will be asked to complete an online technical assessment. Candidates may also be invited for a pre-screening interview to gauge their interest, skill and experience for the position. You may then be invited to a multiple-day skills assessment program covering team building, interview preparation, and technical skills on Microsoft’s Redmond campus. The interviewing teams will meet and engage with the candidates during program exercises and job interviews. Based on the skills assessment and interviewer feedback, the candidate could be offered a full-time job as a Microsoft employee.
