The Blogcast Repository has a premier section of the website called Level 5. We are currently seeking a strong skilled person who has expert functional knowledge of App-V 4.5, installed independently and also how it integrates with SCCM 2007. The person we are looking for should be passionate about Microsoft technologies, a regular blogger and known in the community as a reliable source of information. The Blogcast Repository is owned by Systems Management Resources, LLC and is a Microsoft Gold Partner. We have a very lucrative payment plan which we will discuss with all who apply.
If you are not familiar with making videos, we can help you through the training to get you started. All of our Subject Matter Experts (SME’s) are given 100% free access to all the other guides as a bonus once you are hired as an independent contractor. Other areas of perks will be discussed on a one by one basis. We are extremely selective who we pick for each guide and this helps us have the best person doing an outstanding job and earning what could be a very nice second income for the right person.
If you have another Microsoft technology you would like to be a SME on, let me know and we can discuss other specialties. We encourage anyone with expertise to step forward to help teach the latest Microsoft technologies in the form of videos. The Level 5 section of the site opened in late April and each month the number of subscribers has jumped and never fallen backwards. We expect this trend to continue and hope you have the time, expertise and patience to make unique videos unlike any other website develops. Once you get the hang of it, it’s very fun and also sharpens your skills at the same time.
