First Codess event in Israel

We recently held the 1st Codess event in Israel. 55 pre-registered and pre-screened top female students from tier 1 CS, EE & MBA faculties attended the event. The event’s concept was speed mentoring sessions with tech female Microsoft employees discussing various topics: career planning and management, tips for job search & MS interview process, Microsoft Technologies – Cloud/Cortana, how to influence in organization, internships experience at Microsoft.

Shelly Landsmann, PS lead for Microsoft Israel, opened the event and shared with the students her career path and tips on how to build and succeed in their career.

The energy at the event was great, the students enjoyed the conversation with the mentors, asked lot of questions, it was hard to stop the sessions after 20 minutes and switch mentors.  Following the event we received requests from students to register to Women of Excellence (a special program for outstanding female students in Israel) and to apply for positions at Microsoft.

I would like to thank Alexa Glick for introducing us the format, sharing great best practices and helping us to develop successful  event for Israel.
