My name is Steve Rath, Talent Sourcer, with Microsoft Corp.  I recently located the Linuxchix site and was hoping to find a few good C++/Linux/UNIX developers interested in our Microsoft job opportunities!   The position is located at Microsoft's HQ in Redmond.

The purpose of my email is to seek permission to post this job requirement.   MS accepts H1-B visa transfers and will handle relocation.  Unfortunately we can't apply for new H1 visas at this time.    If any of your members are interested in learning more about the opportunity with Microsoft they can respond to me with a recent copy of their resume in Word format?

Thanks!  Steve  (my contact info is below)
