Rachel Wortman Morris, Ph.D.

As Director of Talent and Employability at Microsoft, I am one of several people behind our Microsoft Learn Career Connected program, which focuses on helping individuals who are new to tech – those coming out of school or those who are looking to change careers –  take advantage of the many technical skilling opportunities that exist and then connecting these newly skilled individuals to Microsoft partners and customers in need of talent. It's an exciting role at a very interesting time that gives me an incredible window into the careers of Microsoft professionals all around the globe.

Through this window I have the opportunity to see how the Microsoft technology stack is used by all kinds of individuals and in all sorts of businesses - from coffee shop owners to people organizing space launches! And that's what I find remarkable about getting skilled on Microsoft technologies.

For those who start building the technical skills, the opportunities are endless.
