Can I merge or transfer the account I use to login to the Microsoft Tech Community

I am using my employer's credentials to login to the Microsoft Tech Community but I am moving employers. Can I take my account with me?
 
Unfortunately, that's not possible. We're unable to change the email address on your account since your work owns the original email address. 
 
What we can do is transfer over your contributor level (for example, Senior Member, Regular Contributor, etc.). A few roles and badges may be able to be transferred (Member of the Week, for example). Email us at techcommunity@microsoft.com and we can do this for you.
 
Please note we cannot transfer any of your contributions (discussion forum posts, etc.) from one account to another.
 
I'd like to change my email address on my account from one personal account to another (Outlook.com, etc.)
 
This is possible. You'll need to create a second account with the new email address, which will allow us to capture some login information to apply to the first account.
 
Once you've done this, email our team at techcommunity@microsoft.com and we can sort it for you.
