A 21-year-old student at the U.K.'s Robert Gordon University was so eager for her interview with Microsoft's University Recruitment team that she showed up an entire month early.
Laura MacLean had prepped for the interview for weeks. The management and marketing major's Skype interview with Microsoft was scheduled for February 18th, 2019. On January 18th, MacLean sat by her laptop waiting for the Skype call. After staring nervously at a blank screen for 15 minutes, she decided to email the recruiter.
