Microsoft Hosts Free Job Interview Bootcamp on “Career Factor”

Ed Tittel Ed Tittel Profile: Ed Tittel

Tomorrow morning at 7:00 AM Pacific Daylight Time (-08:00) Microsoft will host a live job interview bootcamp through its “Career Factor” online reality show, hosted by Microsoft Staffing consultant Wendy Hill. Her sessions at the Microsoft Certified Career Conference on this topic have always been off the charts, and this one should be no different.

Here are the steps on how to register for this event, ripped straight from Microsoft Learning’s “Born to Learn” blog:

1. If you have attended a Microsoft Certified Career Conference event (including this week’s résumé workshop), then you already have a username and password for the event website. Skip to step 4.

2. If you have not attended a Microsoft Certified Career Conference, then you will need to create a username and password. Go to and create a profile. (You’ll be able to use this profile to access future live events and recorded sessions.) We recommend that you create your profile at least a few hours before the event just in case there are technical difficulties.

3. Follow the steps on the screen to register for “Microsoft Certified Career Conference OnDemand.” (Don’t be misled by the shopping cart–this event is free!) Once you’ve created your username and password, complete the registration process, verify that you’ve read the Cancellation Policy, and check out.

4. Sign in to and go to your Agenda (on the left side of the homepage). From this page you can add the event to your Outlook calendar so you get a reminder!

The session will be presented via the Live Meeting client, so please install it ahead of time. The link to join the session will be posted to 10 minutes before the session. If you return at this time and don’t see the link, refresh the page or check the Agenda page.

My advice is to jump right up and do this immediately, so you can tune in tomorrow and catch the action. Such items are usually recorded and then stored to the recordings library on the MS Certified Career Conference site, so you may even be able to drop by at another later time to view the recording after the fact!
