Cert Success Story Contest Closes Next Week

Ed Tittel Ed Tittel Profile: Ed Tittel

OK readers, this blog is just a quick reminder that we started a contest on June 11 in a blog entitled Share Your Certification Success Story, Win an MS Voucher. You can click the afore-cited link for all the details but the gist of the contest is this: visit the blog, click the e-mail link, and tell us about how you or somebody you know earned a cert that led to a new job, a promotion, or some other significant career boost. Microsoft has generously donated six (6) exam vouchers, each worth $125 at going prices for MCP exams.

We’re going to pick 3 winners in North America, and 3 more outside the US, Canada, and Mexico. Each one will get a free exam voucher good for any MCP exam–and hence, toward earning another certification to presumably help boost a career even further. I’ll interview all six winners and provide capsule summaries here in my blog for 5 of those 6. The person we decide has told the most compelling story will be featured in an article I will write for

So far, we’ve received more entries than we have exam vouchers to give away, but I’d very much like to get some more entries to widen the field of contestants, and to make sure we have some great certification stories to tell. Please e-mail us at to share your story with us. This contest ends on June 30 at midnight, so please let us hear from you soon!

Good luck to one and all,
