Irving Green is an Accounting major graduating in 2019. This winter break, Irving had an externship with Microsoft in Bellevue, Washington.
Why did you want to do this externship? I’m interested in how they do business and future career opportunities with them.
What did you do during this job shadow experience? Listened in on important meetings about international contracts and got information on how that works. Toured the Microsoft campus and had lunch with an employee from another department within the company. I also got to see one of their 3 tree houses!
What did you learn from the externship? I learned the struggles of doing international business. I also sat in on a meeting that discussed the jobs of the future, how they differ from previous generations and how to be successful in them.
Anything else you’d like to share about your job shadow experience? I’m so thankful to Eller for making this opportunity available to me and choosing me to be a representative of our amazing college! I’m excited to bring the things I learned to campus and keep in touch with Microsoft!
