How to Work For Microsoft and Google
Hey Maya, how did you get to work for Microsoft and Google? What's the secret?
I only had to do one thing to get these opportunities and you can do it too. Are you ready?
I worked my a@@ off!
I got my job at Microsoft through a 𝗿𝗲𝗳𝗲𝗿𝗿𝗮𝗹.
The people who hired me were my clients a few years earlier when I worked for an agency. They reached out to me because they remembered me and the results I delivered when we worked together.
I was 𝗿𝗲𝗳𝗲𝗿𝗿𝗲𝗱 to Google by a former manager who believed I was uniquely positioned to solve the problem the team at Google was facing. I had more than a decade of experience when I got there, I wasn't fresh out of college.
I didn't magically land these jobs, I worked FOR YEARS to earn these opportunities.
You don't have to start your career working for the biggest companies in the world - you can work your way up there.
Instead of looking for shortcuts focus on doing the work:
1) Get experience
2) Show results
3) Gain a reputation that opens doors
There is more than one way to get your dream job, build a path that works for you.
