My name is Raul Andrei Scortea and I am one of the exuberant, enthusiastic and proud members of the Microsoft Academy for College Hires program. My role within Microsoft is connected with the Unified Communication Support Team, as a Support Engineer, located in Romania. In other words I am the Lync guy.

I studied Telecommunications Systems and Technologies at the “Politehnica” University of Timisoara Romania. Short after my graduation, I had the opportunity to participate in Microsoft Internship program. During the Internship at Microsoft I met the environment where very diverse people collide together, having their passion for IT and Technology as common ground. It became very clear to me that this is the place where I would very much like to continue my self-becoming.

Moreover, I had the chance to learn about MACH and to meet the other “MACHs”. They fascinated and convinced me, Microsoft Academy for College Hires would be the most suitable and exciting beginning point for a freshly, curly graduate like myself.

So, Why Microsoft?  Because it is the place where Technology is at its peak and where innovation, teamwork and multicultural interactions are daily happenings. Here, everyone and everything will guide me to overcome my limits, with the freedom of being myself along this journey.
