What it is like to work as a Microsoft Learn Student Ambassador?

including my Journey into the Program with Learning and Takeaways

Getting into the program on Company’s Birthday was special

The journey

When you get enrolled into the program, one of the first things that happens is that you get your own “@studentambassadors” Email Id along with perks like Visual Studio benefits, subscriptions to Microsoft Azure, TechSmith, Office 365 and LinkedIn Learning till you are part of the program.

The beginning

Initially I was assigned Alpha 1 tier when I joined the program. The thing is that the Program has different levels and each level requires you to complete certain tasks to get promoted to the next level. Each tiers has different benefits associated with it.

  • Alpha 1
  • Alpha 2
  • Beta
  • Gold

Conducting my first event as part of the Program

My first event I conducted was on 3rd May 2020 on topic of “Introduction to Git and Github” with one of my fellow MSP (Microsoft Students Partner) and college friend. The event really changed my outlook about how I looked at teaching and conducting online technical events. The registrations we received were more than 550+.

Knowing that you have done good to someone with no expectation of anything in return, is one of the best feeling in the world.

The first event although we were proud of what we were able to achieve (considering the number of participants), it did left a lot to be desired. I still cringe whenever I see that session on my Youtube channel.

My 2nd Event

The 2nd Event we did was on the topic of “Introduction to Machine Learning using Azure Notebooks” on June 17, 2020.

The Swags and Perks

One of the perks of the program is that you get swags delivered to you for your contributions every year until you are part of the program.

Takeaways from the Program

I really enjoyed being able to chat and be friends with students around the globe. Whether it be Discord, Microsoft teams or WhatsApp, you’ll be able to interact with some of the most talented and driven people in the world.

Conclusion

My biggest regret is that I joined the program really late in my final year of engineering and wasn’t able to do justice with it. Final Year being the time when people are preparing for jobs and internships, it can get a little bit overwhelming handling both. So do yourself a favor, apply for the program as soon as possible.
