Abstract: Who is an intern at Microsoft Research? What do they do? Why should I apply for an Internship? These and other existential questions will be answered! Examples of recent Intern projects will give an insight into the variety and depth of work involved. In brief, Internships are a fantastic opportunity to learn more about research, learn about Microsoft from the inside, work with world-class researcher as mentors and colleagues, and have a great time.
