I assume that you are going to at least have an interview with them?

I was just out recruiting, and found out that federal law has
changed since the last time I did this (about 8 years back).
Recruiters are required to make a 'visual survey', logging the
'apparent race' and gender of all applicants. I talked with an HR
person about this, and they do the same thing for all candidates
which come in without being recruited. This all federally
mandated - and not just for universities.

So far, Microsoft has been able to just track this information
without using preferential hiring - but they have no idea how long
this will continue. They can be audited at any time, and they can
be required to use preferential hiring at the time of any audit.

Of course, if the present 'Civil Rights' bill goes through, religion
will also have to be tracked (which will eliminate the non-intrusive
'survey' option), and the chance of continuing to use
non-preferential hiring will likely disappear (my opinion, not an
official Microsoft pronouncement).
