Concurrent Breakout Session: Putting Our Veteran and Military Community to Work
Putting Our Veteran and Military Community to Work
Microsoft Software and Systems Academy (MSSA) provides transitioning service members, Guard, Reserves, and veterans – including those with a clearance – with critical career skills required for today’s growing technology industry. This 17-week no-cost, fully virtual global program provides training for high-demand careers in cloud development or cloud administration. Program graduates have an opportunity to interview for a full-time job at Microsoft or one of our 1,000-plus hiring partners. Microsoft Military Affairs works to inspire the veteran community to transform their lives through meaningful opportunities in today’s digital economy. At Microsoft, we’re passionate about the work our veteran community does, and we’ve taken a holistic approach to supporting them through their journey – from active duty to veterans, Reserves, and Guard. Microsoft’s veteran commitment takes many forms – from career training programs and hiring efforts to ongoing community and citizenship activities.
