Microsoft Advertising makes 'round of layoffs'

Microsoft Advertising has made a "round of layoffs" following the dispensing of its digital marketing evangelist, according to the employee made redundant.

Mel Carson, the man responsible for building the organisation's relationship with the online advertising market, revealed on his blog that the company had "eliminated" his role following seven years in his position.

He noted that his departure from Microsoft was part of a series of redundancies. However, The Drum reported that clarification over these statements still need to be made.

Mr Carson wrote: "I've been told by human resources that it's fine to talk about my new job search on social networks and my blog as the termination has nothing to do with my performance in the job."

It went onto say that the multinational firm had informed The Wall Street Journal that it had cut a number of positions in advertising and marketing on Wednesday (July 11th) but details remain vague.

A Microsoft spokesperson told The Drum: "We are working closely with the affected employees to support them through this transition and help them apply for other roles within Microsoft."
