    Hey guys thought I would share some information I received when I phoned Microsoft. They said that they will only be contacting successful candidates so if you have not heard from them about an AC then chances are you are unsuccessful They are also contacting people who would be invited to the second round of AC's and each AC will only have candidates for a specific stream, ex. Business Services. Additionally they said that the status on your application might not change immediately so it may remain 'Under consideration' for a while.

    I have until tomorrow to find out whether I was successful but to be honest I don't think I will. Hopefully you guys have better news and if not good luck with all your other applications

    Hey Melissa, no I applied for Technical. I edited my post as I made a minor error :P The AC is meant to be 15th but I haven't heard anything yet, thus further confirming my thoughts I am unsuccessful

    Ah okay. I don't think I made it through either. Sigh. Oh well. I would appreciate them letting us know at the very least. Common courtesy right? They can imagine we are all stressed and worried.
    Do you know when the business AC is?

    AC is in Reading, or so I was told during the Skype interview.

    Well, I guess I was unsuccessful which is a shame. It doesn't feel like they're recruiting many if there is just one AC (With a possibility of a backup if not enough candidates were successful); perhaps they operate their AC differently from other companies (which, from experience are small).

    Oh well, bit of a shame and a bit annoying that they don't even send a rejection notification. Looks like I'll be pursuing my other options more aggressively!

    Sigh.
    These applications are draining and nerve wracking as it is
