MSCD as a Credential?

Here’s an email I received from a reader:

I was interviewing for a new job 6 months ago and mentioned I am a big MSCD fan. The GC said “That is the most impressive thing you could have said.” Needless to say, I got the job. THANK YOU!

I take two things from that. First, that MSCD is an established resource. (That’s just as well, seeing as it has sold tens of thousands of copies.) And second, that some people recognize that using MSCD allows you to express more clearly, concisely, and effectively whatever you want to say in a contract.

If you’re interviewing for a job that involves slinging contract language around and you’re an MSCD person, I would certainly mention that.
