    I am interviewing for the TAM role, I am a computer engineer and have done my masters in MIS, I am currently working for a consulting company. My development/programming and computer science skills have taken a backseat, though i have a great foundation with my basics and concepts. My knowledge in Microsofts products stop at the User level. But i found myself relating to your starting paragrah, love technilogy but dont want to get typecasted into one specific arena. What are my chances of getting picked in an interview? Is there anyway you would mind sharing your email ID so i can contact you for more details? Great article! thanks for Posting!

    Hi Tim,

    I can identify with you in some aspects you mentioned. I worked previously at IBM as PM for 3 years and now I'm interested in a TAM vacancy at MSFT.

    According with your article, I guess both TAM and PM are very similar roles. Am I right? Would you like to give me your opinion?

    Sounds like they basically do a little bit of everything and a lot of nothing! Very vague-sounding job… but with a salary 2.5 times higher than my current one, it sounds like a pretty solid gig.
