Microsoft Careers Trip, with Science Department

Science careers 3On Thursday afternoon, a group of Year 9 students were invited to attend a careers workshop at Microsoft’s head office in Paddington, organised by our Science department.

On arrival the boys were overwhelmed by the luxurious offices and were intrigued to find out what the workshop was going to entail.

The workshop was led by seven highly engaging Microsoft employees. The first section of the workshop allowed the students to explore some of the new innovative apps that Microsoft have designed, including a face recognition app that compares your appearance to celebrities and an app that processes frames from a web camera to derive realtime crowd insights such as demographics, emotion and unique face counting.

The students had a lot of fun playing around with these apps and got an insight into how advanced the technology Microsoft were developing had become.

The second part of the workshop taught the students what a career in technology looks like. All of the employees had become involved with Microsoft via different routes and they explained the benefits and processes of each. The boys were particularly interested in the apprenticeships and internships that they offer.

One key fact that one of the employees stated was that recent research by Microsoft uncovered that 65% of today’s students will be doing jobs that don’t even exist today. This really surprised the students and the thought of working for a global technology company at the forefront of these changes began to appeal to a lot of them.

The students were impeccably behaved throughout and asked some incredibly thought-provoking questions that the Microsoft employees were exceptionally impressed with. The students left the workshop with a wealth of knowledge and motivation that will leave them in good stead when they start making decisions about their own careers.
