Betsynote: Not to be outdone, Beau realized his officemate Ajay would be having a birthday...but here's how Ajay tells it....
I’m Ajay, a graduate student from the Masters of Information Systems Management program at Carnegie Mellon; I’m a program manager intern working on Core search feature development.
Apart from getting hands on with real product feature projects, playing with some fantastic technology, and rubbing shoulders with some really smart people, interns at Microsoft also learn to have fun at work. It’s something I totally love about Microsoft compared to other big companies; everyone knows how to let their hair down once in a while.
Some of you may have seen what Beau’s friends and his friends and I did to his office, so today was my turn. As my birthday “gift” they gave me my very own window office… built entirely of juice cans and cardboard boxes.
The cans were contributed by several interns (yes, we get free juice and soda, and we chug at least 4 a day). They made sure I had a comfortable place to sit, with a nice can hallway for those oh so important “hallway conversations.” I actually liked it so much I’m going to keep it for a while!
Thanks a ton to Beau, Michael, Franz, Maggie, Jaidev, Dena, Mario, Josh and Yan. This rocks!!
Who says Microsoft is all work and no play? :)
