Congrats to Julia I. for Landing Her Dream Job with Microsoft after the Last HBCU CONNECT Hiring Event! (5404 hits)

Julia was hired after attending one of our recent hiring events with Microsoft's SCIM organization and she shared a few words after joining the team recently.

Congrats Julia!

Itís been a while since Iíve posted a picture on here, but today is a special occasion as Iím super excited to announce that Iím starting a new position as a Product Manager at Microsoft!

My passion for product was ignited years ago during my internship with Deloitte where I took off my end user hat for the first time and was exposed to the challenging, yet fulfilling development side of product. I felt a strong desire to combine my background in Computer Science, my nuanced perspective as a Black woman in tech, my enthusiasm for innovation, and my excitement for rallying and unifying people from different backgrounds towards a common goal by pursuing Product Management.

I would be remiss if I didnít mention the hundreds of rejections (or as I like to say, redirections) over the past several months that allowed me to get to this point. Nevertheless, Iím thankful for the arduous journey and the guidance and wisdom of God as well as the people that poured into me and supported me along the way - Rodney Johnson, Glenn Block, MBA (he/him/his), Kimberley Buchanan, Odell Hemby, HBCU CONNECT, Beth M., Derek Hazeur, Mahyar G. and countless others! My journey would not have been the same without these people and gratefulness is an understatement.

Iím super excited to drive impact within this new industry and bring others that look like me along to increase the mere 5% of women that are Product Managers.
