Tips on the Microsoft Lunch Interview

March 10th, 2009 by lewis

A few weeks ago, I offered tips on how to handle the lunch interview.  Lunch interviews are very common at Microsoft, especially if you interview on-site.
The Microsoft JobsBlog offers some advice on what to order:

My interview advice is to pick a salad or sandwich; it is quick and non-messy to eat. A hamburger or anything else not pre-made is risky: it takes a long time and you could likely spend a sizeable portion of your interview standing around the charbroiler. If you are the nervous-type, go with soup and pick up an energy bar while you are at the checkout.

There’s also a more recent post about the Microsoft lunch interview, featuring podcast tips from three Microsoft employees.
