REDMOND, Wash., Oct 8, 2018 /PRNoisewire/ — On Monday, Microsoft Corp. announced new in-field promotions for users of the Windows 10 operating system. In a news brief, Microsoft CEO Natya Sadella says the company will replace existing STEs (Software Test Engineers) at the company with the product users themselves, removing the unnecessary positions at Microsoft. “By promoting our own users to in-field STEs, we’re streamlining the process of identifying and eventually dealing with the bugs in our operating system…, not that there are many.”
“Understandably, these are of course unpaid intern positions being offered to each user of Windows 10 but just think how great that will look on their resumes”, Sadella continued. “Who doesn’t want to work at Microsoft?”
“We’ll be allowing Windows 10 users to include this position on their resumes for free for a period of twelve months. Afterwards, they may continue to do so by signing up with Microsoft ResumeFodder 365 on a month-by-month basis”, Sadella explained.
Nasdaq:MSFT responded favorably to the news, up $3.52 at market close.
