Get on the Bus! is an eleven-day cross-country odyssey across the U.S aboard the Career Express tour bus. Our Microsoft Learning community leads and evangelists will be holding community events at partner and IT Academy locations in each city, highlighting individuals and organizations doing innovative and inspiring things to help our customers advance their careers with Microsoft training and certification. The trip will be live-blogged with GPS locations sharing and tagging en route. Our goal is to raise awareness for the career resources and opportunities that Microsoft is offering during a difficult economic time and drive some excitement in the process.

At six key cities along the way, we’ll be holding competitions in which community members will attempt to convince the MCP community at large that they’d be outstanding community ambassadors. The community will vote for one winner in each city, who will immediately get on the bus and join us as we continue on to TechEd, where they will attend the conference for free!
