Congratulations to Jegan Matthews - Recently Hired by Microsoft at Our HBCU CONNECT Event in June 2020!

Congratulations to Jegan Matthews - Recently Hired by Microsoft at Our HBCU CONNECT Event in June 2020!
Posted By: Will Moss on August 09, 2020

On June 18th, 2020, Microsoft and HBCU CONNECT partnered to host an online virtual hiring event for Black Software Engineers and Program Management professionals.

This was just one of a series of events hosted by Microsoft in 2020 that have resulted in more African American and Black candidates accepting jobs with the Software Giant.

Already, in just the first half of 2020, Microsoft and HBCU CONNECT have partnered on 6 such events targeting engineers and program management professionals, which has resulted in hundreds of African American professionals getting a closer look at Microsoft, and Microsoft also getting a closer look at talented diverse professionals, like Jegan.

Jegan Matthews, an experienced African American software engineering professionals, already living in the Pacific Northwestern United States, was one of the attendees of the HBCU CONNECT Microsoft event. While Jegan is not specifically an HBCU graduate, HBCU CONNECT welcomes all minority professionals to attend the events, so Jegan took advantage.



Jegan reported back to HBCU CONNECT with the good news that he had been made an offer after interviewing with Microsoft as a result of the event, and he just accepted the offer!

There are also many Latino professionals that have taken advantage of the diversity hiring events hosted by HBCU CONNECT, but the organization is primarily tapped by companies desperately looking to hire Black candidates.

As a part of the normal process, candidates submit their resumes to HBCU CONNECT through an event landing page and the team at HBCU CONNECT reviews the candidates and shares event details for those that are a fit for openings at Microsoft.

Let's congratulate Jegan on the new opportunity, and also a big congratulations to Microsoft for not only hiring the best and brightest, but continuing their focus on hiring HBCU Graduates, and Black Professionals open to new career opportunities!

The next HBCU CONNECT Microsoft Virtual hiring event will be for an expanding software development team in the Atlanta area on September 17th.
