    We are committed

    At Microsoft we have an inherently inclusive mission – to empower everyone on the planet. We think of diversity and inclusion as core to our business model, something which informs our actions and can impact economies and people around the world. There are billions of people who want to achieve more, but have a different set of circumstances, abilities, and backgrounds that often limit access to opportunity and achievement. The better we represent that diversity inside Microsoft, the better we’re able to innovate for those we seek to empower.

    Change starts with you

    Fostering a hiring process that is inclusive of candidates with disabilities is a top priority, which is why we’ve made it easier to request accommodations that allow you to fully participate and show your capabilities during the interview.    

     

    Whatever your skills, passions, and abilities are, we are here to help you succeed by offering accommodations throughout your interviewing process and future employment.  Our team is trained not only in accommodation coordination, but also on maintaining candidate privacy and confidentiality to enable an unbiased and equitable experience. 

Accommodations


  • Interview accommodations

  • Workplace accommodations
  • Accommodations are appropriate changes and adjustments to the application or hiring process that create an equitable interview process for candidates with disabilities.  

     

    If you need assistance applying for a role due to a disability or additional need, please let us know by completing the support form. If scheduled for an interview, you will be asked to complete a separate form in the Action Center of your profile.

     

    Accommodations are very personal and individualized depending on each unique candidate and their circumstances. Examples of some accommodations that we have made for candidates during the screening process include: 

    • Additional time to complete an online technical screen  
    • Receiving content in an accessible format  
    • Use of a Sign Language Interpreter  
    • CART (Communication Access Realtime Translation) captioning  
    • Scheduling adjustments, longer breaks 
    • Having documents read to you 

     

    We understand that it can be difficult to know what to ask for before you have more information about the interview structure. We encourage you to leverage your scheduling contact or recruiting partner so that they may best assist you during the process.
