MICROSOFT STUDENT PARTNER RECRUITMENT DRIVE FOR STUDENTS
Microsoft is currently running a recruitment drive for the Microsoft Student Partner program in the East Africa Region. The company is looking for students with a passion for technology and a desire to share that passion with other students on their campus. The Microsoft Student Partners (MSPs) program offers technical training, incredible connections, and extraordinary opportunities. We expose new Microsoft technologies to MSPs around the world.
