Microsoft's hackathon goes virtual this year


On 11 and 12 February, Microsoft conducted its first virtual competitive hackathon event ‘Job Hack’ along with Blue Prism and Ernst & Young (EY). A total of 75 students across eight countries have completed the programme.

“It’s our first time to orchestrate the Job Hack 100% virtually,” said Leo Chan, HR director at Microsoft Hong Kong.

“Considering the positive feedback from our participants, we will definitely consider to keep the job hack virtual next year.”

The winning team comes from a STEM (science, tech, engineering and maths) background and came up with a solution to promote local tourism. They won a chance to interview for Microsoft’s Aspire programme.
