Every year in January, Microsoft conducts technical interviews in Sydney and they hire approx 2000 technical IT people and local graduates on spot.
Seriously doubt that number. If it was 2000 per year it would be a big thing in Australia.

I'm keen to move to the US so that I can own an AR-15, AK-47, Glock 18 plus others

One of the truly great things about America is the right to own firearms

And I'm not joking

Indeed, it really is one of the truly great things, I mean 30,000 deaths a year from gunshot, must be great in some way, surely?

Keep a gun in the house and you're quite likely to blow your own brains out at some point.
