Being brand new to Microsoft Learning, one of my first missions is to actively try to meet as many people on the team as possible. In the past, I’ve found that this is a great best practice when starting a new job because it helps to have relationships in place—before you need something from a colleague! Of course, as a new Community Manager, I figure that as long as I’m meeting people, I can use the opportunity to give the community an inside look at our team. So I set out in the office with a video camera in hand…

Last week, as part of the “Inside MSL” blog series, I introduced you to Liberty Munson, our Psychometrician. This week, I’m back to introduce you to Briana Roberts, a Content Manager for Microsoft IT Academy. During the short two minute interview, I asked her the following questions:

  • What are your responsibilities as a Content Manager?

  • What is your favorite thing about your job?

  • What is your #1 tip for people trying to get a job at Microsoft?


Thanks to Briana for the opportunity to interview her! She was a great sport.

In addition to being one of Microsoft IT Academy’s rock star Content Managers, you can also find Briana in Microsoft Learning’s ACE NewsByte videos, where she helps to bring you the latest certification and training news.
