Because we develop learning products on a wide variety of Microsoft technologies, we need to keep in touch with experts on each product to help us develop the content. We call these folks Subject Matter Experts, or SMEs (rhymes with “sneeze”) for short. We love our SMEs, and we simply can't make our products without them.
Have you ever wondered how you can get involved with content development for Microsoft Learning? Well, it's easy. We have a system for keeping track of people who want to participate. You just need to fill out a SME Profile survey. We'll contact you about opportunities that match the skills and experience in your profile, such as blueprinting or beta exams. As you gain new experience and skills, or as new versions of products come out, you'll need to update your profile by editing your survey responses.
If this is the first you've heard about our database of SME Profiles, or if you started to fill out the (admittedly very long) survey and just didn't finish, there's no time like the present to sign up. You can go directly to this page on Microsoft Connect and fill out the SME Profile survey. If you have previously registered on Connect, sign in with your Windows Live ID so that you can access the survey. If you’re new to Connect, you will be prompted to complete the Connect registration process before you can access the survey. There is no need for an invitation code.
**The Connect registration process can be a little rocky, so if you’re having trouble getting to the survey, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll send you some more troubleshooting info.

Sorry for the really slow response. If you already created your SME profile, you've done everything you need to do. As opportunities arise to help us out with content development, we'll contact you using the notification system within Connect. Watch out for e-mails from Microsoft Connect. I think you'll see something pretty soon. ;0)

Microsoft Certification exams are carefully developed with input from industry professionals to reflect how Microsoft products are used in organizations throughout the world. The exams test the skills required to use Microsoft technologies or perform the necessary job functions in areas such as server administration, database administration, and solutions development. These rigorous exams go well beyond testing routine knowledge or terminology. After all, on the job, you need to know more than facts. You need to apply your knowledge by analyzing technical solutions, solving problems, and making decisions.
