Microsoft offers 15$ Certification Exams for Those Affected by COVID-19


This year has been a tough one for all of us, but some people in all fields have lost their jobs due to COVID-19. In order to help people across the globe show their technical skills and stand out, Microsoft is offering multiple certification exams for as low as 15$ USD. This is a very nice gesture from Microsoft, so I would like to highlight that this exam offer is available to job seekers who can attest that they have been unemployed or furloughed due to COVID-19. Please do not abuse the offer as this will probably cause Microsoft to not offer similar offers in the future. The exam must be scheduled before December 31st ,2020 and taken before March 31st, 2021
