Microsoft’s Ballmer to UW students: E-mail me for a job

Cloud computing was the focus of Steve Ballmer’s talk at the University of Washington today, but the Microsoft chief executive was also doing a little recruiting.

Ballmer told the packed house at the computer science department’s Paul G. Allen Center that Microsoft is the area’s biggest local employer and “we’d love to have you.”

“Send me a resume if you want to test that proposition,” he said.

Microsoft hires more than 100 UW graduates a hear, said Mark Emmert, the school’s president. But it’s not clear how many found work by e-mailing steveb@microsoft.com.

A few pictures I took at the event with my phone, including autographs:

And a fuel truck next to one of Ballmer’s show-and-tells: a “cloud in a box” portable data center parked outside Allen Center. The fuel was going into a portable generator:
