Participate in the First Ever JNCP Blogging Challenge!
Jul 22, 2014
Now is your opportunity to share your certification story. The Juniper Networks Certification Program (JNCP) is inviting those with an active JNCIS, JNCIP, or JNCIE credential to participate in our first ever JNCP Blogging Challenge.
What is a Blogging Challenge?
The Blogging Challenge is a fun and interesting way for members of the JNCP community to share their stories. We’d like to hear…
Why you pursued certification, and what you gained from the process of getting certified or…
How you prepared for certification, including resources used, tips and techniques or…
A specific technical situation where the process of training and practicing for certification gave you the skills and confidence to solve a problem, create a new and better solution, or innovate
The JNCP Blogging Challenge is a chance for you to be seen as a thought leader – as well as share with and enrich the JNCP community. In addition to visibility and thought leadership for yourself, all participants that submit a blog entry will receive a certification voucher for a free Juniper written exam delivered through PearsonVUE. Accepted submissions will receive a JNCP t-shirt. And the top three blogs, as voted by J-Net readers, will win a GoPro video camera*! It’s a win for you and the Juniper Community!
How to Participate
Participation is easy; even if you have never written a blog post before. Just follow these steps…
Step 1: Think of an interesting story you want to share with the community (see above for types of stories)
Step 2: Write up your story in 300-500 words in English, German, French, Spanish, Japanese or Simplified/Traditional Chinese.
Not sure about writing a blog post? It’s actually fun because writing a blog post is a great opportunity to be yourself and tell a story in your own words. You can use humor, analogies, examples…anything you want to convey your story. View Blogging Tips and Tricks attached below for suggestions on how to write a great blog post.
How Will Entries Be Judged
The good news is that we (Juniper) are not judging one submission as better than another. We will ensure entries are:
Of interest to our audience (Juniper certified and those considering becoming Juniper certified)
Related to Juniper products/solutions
Of a reasonable length - 300 to 500 words
The Juniper J-Net community will be encouraged to read the blog posts and indicate those they like best with J-Net Kudos. Just click on the star located in the kudos image and it will give the reader kudos. Juniper will track the Kudos Leader Board and the three articles with the most Kudos will win!
How Will Prizes Be Awarded?
All participants will receive a JNCP Voucher valid for a free written certification exam. Accepted submissions will receive a JNCP T-shirt. The three blogs that receive the most ‘Kudos’ from J-Net readers will receive the GoPro Cameras.
