Have you ever earned an IT certification? Do you know anybody else who has?


We’re looking for “Certification Success Stories,” where IT Professionals tell us how earning an IT certification has led to a big raise, a nice promotion, or a great new job. We’d like to hear from you with a brief description of how your experience, or that of somebody you know, meets one or more of these criteria. If your story really grabs our interest, we’ll want to follow up with a detailed interview by phone or e-mail. The top 6 entries will be profiled online, with the five runners-up covered in my blog, and the big winner serving as the focus for an article on


And just to excite your interest in participating, Microsoft has provided us with six exam vouchers that we’re going to give away: three for North America (US, Canada, and Mexico), and three for the rest of the world. These vouchers are good for MCP  and Microsoft Dynamics exams, so winners will be able to use them to go after their next certification! The going price for an MCP exam these days is $125, so this ain’t chicken feed.


Please e-mail us at, put IT Cert Contest in your subject line, and give us a brief synopsis of your success story, so we can start picking winners. This contest starts today, June 12, and runs through June 30 (extended on 6/18, to give people additional time to indicate some interest). Hope to hear from you soon!


Only one entry per e-mail address, please. May the best story not only win, but inspire others to get their certification plans in gear.
