Microsoft Sent An Email To "Bae Interns" And The Internet Went Into Meltdown
Millennials are a hot commodity these days. Everyone wants in on that 18-30 year-old* action.
So much that companies are desperate to appeal to appeal to them. "HOW DO WE GET MOAR MILLENNIALS??!!1" they scream into the void.
Well, this time the void screamed back.
Because a recruiter for Microsoft sent this email out to hip young millennials in San Francisco:
My roommate received this email from a Microsoft recruiter today. pic.twitter.com/90Qwr78eGO

Given the utter horror of this email - the colours, the "baes", the "Yammer beer pong" (we're unclear on exactly what this means) - the internet came down hard on poor Kim of Microsoft.
Some just took the piss

Though with immense accuracy
Hella on fleek Microsoft! Totes gucci to be all swag! Recruiter team be lit like YOLO and turnt AF! https://t.co/0c6BBxy0Or

Others wondered who had really written the email

And tried to get into the mindset of the author
This email owns because you can imagine some 45 year old middle manager typing it out with one finger on each hand https://t.co/FOnx5bvkDi

The question of legality was raised
Privileged white people under the age of 35 should be illegal https://t.co/Be30O9Ij7l

This guy was just thankful that his eyes would never have to bleed
I’m glad I’m 34 and will never receive a message like this. https://t.co/C94Dzem0JB

Handy tips were given to other recruitment firms based on Microsoft's clear success
What undergrads are looking for in a recruitment event:
1. Hella noms
2. Lots of dranks
3. The best beats
4. Branded beer pong tables

The future of humanity was called into question

Details are yet to emerge on just how dope the party was and how Yammer managed to sponsor beer pong, but rest assured: we will share this information as soon as it is available.
We have also contacted Microsoft for comment on exactly what kind of "hella noms" were on offer, but at the time of writing they have yet to respond.
