Microsoft launches a new career campaign, where company executives share their vision for the future of technology jobs, and how IT pros and students can start preparing now. “Most high-tech software companies’ve been started by a student in a dorm room somewhere (emphasis added), so you can’t necessarily separate the concepts of the “career of the future” and “students aspiring to be technology leaders.” Time and again, we’ve seen students lead technology shifts. Sure, R&D often starts with commercial companies and educational institutions, but students are the ones who get to engage with technology and make it real for us. Those aspiring to become technology leaders need to continue getting their hands dirty playing with technology and pushing the boundaries of innovation,” Ziob says.
