Career Express Day 1 Atlanta Pre-Events, Loading Bus and Intros

May 1st, 2009

Wow, it’s early! After going to sleep at 2AM last night, I was back up again at 4AM!

Our morning so far consisted of loading the bus with all of the schwag for the trip! What’s that you say? A massive bus loaded with 14,000 pieces of schwag?!? Needless to say we have a lot of stuff for this long journey!

Once it gets light out, I’ll provide some pictures… ?Video?! of the bus, but until that point, I’ll focus more on the actual peoples who are here on the bus!

At this moment, the bus happens in addition to 6 Microsoft Employees from the MSLearning team, another contest winner Chris Rue!

The MS Team itself consists of Ken, Dana, Liberty, Sarah, Elese, Maggie, Ryan!

As things progress, I’ll provide more content including Interviews with folks, and a special video interview with Chris Rue at some point! Until that time… we’re rolling on the road now, so we’re off now to…United States Army School of Information Technology, in Fort Gordon, GA, 8:30am – 11:00am

Also Be sure to join us at:

Until later, here we go rolling on to Fort Gordon!

Here is a picture of Chris Rue featuring the bus! And the rest of the MSLearning getting their Starbucks fix! Can’t get the Seattle out of them! ;)

Chris Rue shows us the Career Express! @MSLearning at Starbucks getting their morning fix!

Career Express Day 0 Atlanta Highlights

May 1st, 2009

Welcome to Atlanta! The Career Express is in motion! (For the uninitiated this is the MSLearning Career Express “Get on the Bus” tour)

Where the sidewalks have no name! image

After getting in and heading to the restaurant (on foot) I traveled where the sidewalks have no name! And Elise tries on a hat while we do our bus shopping!

So, Day 0 has come to an end and I prepare for sleeping to wake up in a few hours for Friday!

Last but not least, I encourage you to check out our events going on Friday!

Oh and a little special video of some of the clips taken while getting lost in the parking garage!
