I’m about to graduate from college and will have 13 months remaining on my GI Bill benefit, which can be used for certifications or other job training. Would Microsoft prefer that I had certifications in Microsoft products, or is that something I could be trained in upon hiring?

Dear GI Bill to Microsoft:
Thank you for your question. I recommend that you do an assessment of the qualifications necessary for the position you are interested in and identify what skills you may lack for the job. If a job requires a Microsoft certification, it will usually specify it in the job description.
I always tell job candidates, specifically fellow military veterans, that there is no one cookie-cutter way to joining the ranks of Microsoft. However, there are several things you can do to up your chances of an interview.
