Looking for great tech talent? We can help.

The Microsoft Software and Systems Academy (MSSA) helps active duty US service members develop the skills needed for careers in today's fast-paced technology industry. At a time when many tech organizations are struggling to find high-quality talent, graduates of the MSSA have the training, plus all the great qualities our military men and women possess.

In this podcast, Kati Quigley, Senior Director of Partner Marketing in the WPG, interviews Major General Chris Cortez, Vice President of Military Affairs at Microsoft, Jenn Halabi and Tony Montoya of partner Nintex, and John Holk and Duane Kord of Microsoft about their experiences with the MSSA program.
