Several of you have asked whether we’re serious about our mini-contest, and the answer is yes: James, Liberty, and Elese are ready, willing, and hoping to pack their bags and join us on the Career Express, but only one of them will.
There’s still about four hours left (as of this writing) to vote, so get your vote in if you haven’t already!
Wondering who to vote for? Here’s a quick voter’s guide:
James: The Geek’s Geek. As our Certification Manager/Product Planner, James is the guy who decides what exams we publish, and when. Want to know why we did an exam for, say, Virtual Earth but not Silverlight? Then you want to vote for James to Get on the Bus so you can ask him in person!
Liberty: Master of Arcane Lore. As our Psychometrician/Program Manager, Liberty is one of the few individuals in the world who know why we do what we do the way we do (for exams, anyway). Don’t believe me? Check this out. Want to know why some items get included on an exam and some don’t? Vote for Liberty to Get on the Bus to ask her in person!
Elese: Advance Agent. As one of our Audience Marketing Managers, Elese is our only contestant who focuses on more than just exams—she ensures that all of our learning resources (exams, training, e-learning, learning plans, books) for upcoming software releases find their way to their intended audiences. Want to know what we have in store for the next release of Exchange or Visual Studio? Vote for Elese to Get on the Bus to find out from her in person!
We’ve had a lot of hits on our mini-contest this week, and while there’s a clear leader at the moment (no spoilers here!), every vote counts: this is only the first of three rounds of voting, and your votes will be converted into points for each contestant… meaning that it ain’t over ‘til it’s over.
James, Elese, and Liberty are in our studio this afternoon testing their knowledge of our certifications in Round Two. Are They Certifiable? Tune in Monday to find out, and tune in tomorrow to find out who won Round One!
