Get IT Certified the eBay Way!
Have you missed out on the easiest, most cost-effective way to earn a technical certification?
I feel sorry for those suckers who spent hundreds or thousands of dollars and
hours getting their Microsoft certifications. Heck, I even feel sorry for brain
dumpers who still had to pay the money and take the test. You all have missed
out on the easiest, most cost-effective way to earn a technical certification
and jump-start your career.
Im speaking, of course, of eBay.
For the low, low price of only $9.98, you can get yourself an Attractive
and Impressive Diploma (I know this because it says so in the description)
from the Southeastern Institute of Computer Technology.
Now, lest you think, wary reader, that this is some fly-by-night operation,
Ill have you know that the Southeastern Institute of Computer Technology
is affiliated with The Holy Trinity College and Seminary, licensed by
the State of Florida, Department of Independent Colleges and Universities.
Those seminarians know a thing or two about IT. And the single test you have
to pass is probably every bit as tough as was legendary 70-240, the four-hour
Windows 2000 Accelerated Exam. After all, the Institute exam is multiple-choice,
open book, untimed, and can be retaken as many times as needed until you hit
the magical 90 percent mark, demonstrating to the world that youre a crack
These sorts of deals dont come along every day, so you must act quickly
if you want to get your IT career on the fast track! Like the auction copy says,
The complete program is regularly priced at $99.95, so do not miss this
rare opportunity to become a Certified Windows 2000 System Administrator, at
this low price! Rare is right. At last count, there were only about 50
of these certifications being sold on eBay.
If Microsoft isnt your bag, dont fret: Your expertise can be similarly
demonstrated in (insert Sally Struthers voice here) Linux, Unix, HTML programming,
Java programming, PC technician, Web master, and many others!
- If you still need more convincing to jump on this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity,
check out just three of the 10 reasons the Institute says you need certification:
- Employers, friends and colleagues will respect your certification status.
- Our diploma will look great on your wall.
- With our courses you STAND OUT and receive immediate notice in the huge
arena of people with computer skills. This notice will serve you well.
Shockingly, stunningly, amazingly, the Southeastern Institute of Computer Technology
didnt respond to MCP Magazines request for comment on this
incredible offer. They were obviously too busy cranking out more Attractive
and Impressive Diplomas.
