Microsoft On Mac Hiring Binge

Microsoft is in hiring mode, and is looking for talent. Mac talent.

Say what you will about Microsoft, the company often knows when a business opportunity is in front of it. And, judging by some of its hiring plans, it's banking on an interesting growth opportunity.

In the Mac.

In a Q&A with college recruiter Ginny Cheng, posted on the MSDN network, Microsoft development lead Mick Foley notes that "(d)epending on when and how you measure it, Microsoft is either the largest or second largest third party vendors for Mac platform (vs. Adobe)."

Microsoft's Macintosh Business Unit (MacBU) his in growth mode, Foley says:

The timing is right.

Apple blew past Wall Street expectations for its most recent quarterly earnings, and some VARs have said pre-orders of its Leopard operating system are doubling pre-orders for Apple's last major OS release, Tiger.

Foley also has some tips if you want to interview for one of the openings at Microsoft's Mac unit including "Get a good night's sleep - - come in fresh and ready to think" and "Be prepared for technical problems - - we do ask them."
