  • Hi,

     The experience of 2-3 years is recommended but anybody can take the certifications.
    If you are interested in ASP.Net in 2008 then 70-536 and 70-562 is the right track.
    Passing these exams without the experience to back them up is better than not having them, but is unlikely to put you ahead of people with more experience at interview.

    Hope this helps

  • Hi,

    Probably other people much better qualified to answer this, but friends of mine who have joined Microsoft are all very experienced.  Microsoft may have graduate opportunities, but the opportunities are probably very dependent on country.
    I imagine wth the credit crisis a lot of big firms have hiring freezes.
    I do not have any advice in how to get into big organization apart from apply and be keen.


    Best of luck

    Geoff
