Women and Microsoft

Microsoft India held a special recruitment drive for women in the Indian IT industry. In celebration of Women's Day on 8th March, a full-scale placement program was held in various cities across the country. Being in Infosys currently and nurturing dreams of joining companies like Microsoft, Oracle or Yahoo, I pondered over the logic of this endowing testament to women.

So, why did they conduct such a walk-in? I have no clue really. Maybe, they are short of women employees. Maybe they want to balance the ratio of men and women in the company. Maybe, it's an International Women's Day tribute from the world's best software company.

Interesting, isn't it?
