The Microsoft graduate scheme
We've created something special to give graduates from some of the world's top colleges and universities a leaping, bounding, flying start to their career. It's called the Microsoft Academy for College Hires (or MACH) scheme, it lasts for two years and it's been carefully created to form the perfect bridge between academic and professional life.
Whether you're based in Reading or London, the idea of the scheme is to introduce you to real work on major projects from day one, with the cushion of structured training, mentoring, support and assessment to identify and play to your unique strengths. And as you build your career in Sales, Technology or Marketing, you'll have the chance to learn directly from senior colleagues around Microsoft, as well as network extensively with MACH graduates across the globe.
