A Day at Microsoft Israel HQ is a Day Well Spent

Tags: , , , , , , ,

There are perks to being an alumna of the Israel Tech Challenge. You meet inspirational people, have access to exciting new projects, and can sneak extra free drinks at happy hours. But the perk of getting first-hand, behind-the-scenes experiences in the Israeli technology industry is very special. So when I was asked if I wanted to go hang out at the Microsoft office in Herzliya for a day, the former-Seattleite in me couldn’t say no.

Alum in the spotlight: Ben Berger

In the summer 2015 I was an Israel Tech Challenge Intern working for Checkpoint. It was honestly the best experience of my life. Since then I finished my undergraduate degree of Computer Science at Binghamton University. I’ve been preparing for Aliyah since I left and looking into jobs in and near Tel Aviv. I have also recently started developing an application to market towards summer camps. A lot of that is thanks to the skills I picked up during the interns program. My decision to make Aliyah came before last summer but really finalized throughout the summer. Previously I had been worried about the prospect of working in a foreign country especially with my poor Hebrew skills and lack of a real Sunday. I couldn’t have been more wrong and am eagerly awaiting rejoining the work force shortly. Actually the Sunday thing is still going to take some getting used to… I’d like to give a shoutout to Akiva Futter, the Alum that got me involved, as well as to to all the Israel Tech Challenge members I’ve influenced to join as well. It’s a great family to have.
