Since we kicked off our contest “The Fast Track Challenge” I’ve been looking forward to checking my e-mail for new entries every morning. I love reading how people are using our training to advance their careers and really change their lives. Many of the entrants experience a virtuous cycle where they gain confidence as they gain skills that lead to a major personal win which in turn gives them to the confidence to go even harder at their next challenge. I also have to admit I love reading about how showing a prospective employer our course completion certificates and dashboard profiles makes a difference in job interviews.
If you haven’t entered yet, there’s still time. We’re accepting entries through this Friday, June 28. If you’ve been able to move forward at your job or had the opportunity to make the switch to a more rewarding job because of how MVA has helped you, I encourage you to send us email sharing your experience. We’ll choose a set of finalist and have the community vote for the winner. We’ll be awarding the winner Visual Studio Professional with an MSDN subscription for access to even more tools and great help and information.
Based on questions we’ve heard and the entries we’ve received, here are some tips that can help you with your entry. Leave me a note below if you need further help.
As a final tip, don’t put it off. The contest submission period is ending soon so submit your story.
