Announcements will be made on this page from time to time with event details like time, venue etc. All candidates who fall in that region and can attend the event are requested to do so. This will ensure speedy processing of your application. However, only pre-registered candidates will be screened. Microsoft will not bear any travel expenses that you may incur to attend such events.
In case you are not able to attend these in-person events, you can still be part of the selection process. Submit the video, fill the registration form and you shall get screened if we find you interesting!
