MS Exam Voucher Winners for “Cert Success” Contest

Ed Tittel Ed Tittel Profile: Ed Tittel

Here is a list of winners by first name and last initial, plus city and state (US) or country (outside US). All the winners should have received an e-mail from by now, asking for their mailing addresses so that the physical paper vouchers may be mailed to them (if you haven’t gotten such a message yet, please post a comment here to the blog and I’ll work with you to get this taken care of). For the benefit of all and sundry, here are the names, in order of ranking (highest ranked response comes first):

  • Melissa S Spring, TX
  • Thomas L Germany
  • John C Virginia Beach, VA
  • Renne B Philippines
  • Flavio B Brazil
  • Steven M SE Ontario, CA

Now that they’ve all won, I need each of the winners to fill out the following questionnaire, so that I can write up interviews with each of them, mostly for this blog. As the “big winner” Melissa S. of Spring, TX, will be profiled in a article as soon as I can get her on the phone for an interview, and write up the results. Stay tuned for lots more information about all of these folks right here!

Winner Questionnaire:
1. What do you currently do for a living?
2. Please describe your educational background.
3. What kinds of certifications do you currently hold, if any?
4. How has earning a certification helped to advance your career?
5. What exam do you plan to use the MCP voucher to take?
6. What kind of advice do you have for your peers and colleagues about earning a certification?
    about finding a job?
    about improving your career prospects or outlook?

Please cut and paste the questionnaire into an e-mail message and send it to me ASAP at ed at edtittel dot com. Your speedy replies will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks to one and all who participated. It was an interesting batch of entries to consider, and lots of fun to choose and rank the contestants.
