General Interview Information
Length of Process
I did 4 interviews total with various finance managers and directors. 3 of the interviews were behavioral with some technical questions sprinkled in like why would Microsoft finance acquisitions rather than use the $130+ billion in cash they currently have or what are some valuation aspects to consider beyond just conventional DCF analysis or comparable company analysis. The final interview was almost entirely technical focused on technology strategy and finance. However, the other interns told me their interviews differed in nature. Most people only had 4 behavioral with 2-3 technical questions sprinkled into each. Ensure that you have a solid understanding of Microsoft's business, emerging businesses, and can really show them why you want to work at Microsoft.
