Microsoft Received some feedback yesterday that I’m “Too smart for the role and they feared that I’d get bored and leave quickly. “ It’s honestly the most confused I’ve ever left a call. Does anyone know what this means? I thought it was a compliment initially but in retrospect it just doesn’t seem very genuine. Have y’all had anyone hit you with this one?

This seems odd. Microsoft’s culture is to hire for Microsoft and talent. If you were a rock star I find it difficult they would pass because you would grow internally too fast.

Unless they could not possibly offer you a level and pays scale you would accept. This is the they only concern. Most roles are capped at the level they can bring someone in as.


Oh I see, that makes more sense I figured since Microsoft had doubled the budget this wouldn’t be an issue but I am sad either way. I was looking forward to working with one of the top 10 in the world.

Thank you for the feedback!~
