- Microsoft Certifications - Jochen Kirstätter
You are going to graduate soon or probably graduated from university and you may hold some sort of degree in the field of IT or software engineering. Since then you working your daily job as a professional - either employed or freelancing. Over time you gain knowledge and valuable experience in the tools and programming languages you use.
But do you know whether your knowledge and experience is "up to standards"? Or how you would compare to other professionals in the same technology stack?
Certifications in the industry can help with that. They are standardized world wide and give you an indicator about yourself. During the session you are going to hear about my experience with various certification exams over the past years, and why a constant, probably daily, learning attitude is essential for your career and personal growth in the field.
Lastly, you are going to learn how to stay motivated during the preparation for an exam and how to keep yourself accountable following the #100DaysOfExam approach.
