Source top candidates with the Microsoft MVP database!
Microsoft has done us a huge favor and published their MVP or Most Valuable Professional list. These are people that are certified and highly regarded in fields related to Microsoft technologies and are often sought after for top positions.
They are all listed in this searchable database. Let’s see what we can do with it!
First off, I’m going to choose the United States, so we can filter out international experts. Then, choose the award category. We went with Microsoft Azure. Boom, 33 people! Overall, there are almost 500 people across all award categories in the United States and about 2,800 people in total.
Each person’s profile will give their biography, display their number of awards, any certifications, and social links. Recent activity will show past projects, workshops they were part of, as well as speaking engagements!
This is a great resource to learn about a potential candidate, or to source from some of the top industry leaders!
