Are you an expert at your job?
Here’s a different question – Are you an expert in your industry?
While being great at your work and spending years in your present role can definitely turn you into an expert at your job, that is no guarantee of becoming an expert in your industry. Professional certifications help you understand the best practices of the industry.
Not just that, a certification like PMI’s PMP can help you enhance your project management skills and open doors for better job opportunities.
PMP is recognized globally and the certification can be your ticket to project management roles in IT, manufacturing, finance, healthcare, infrastructure and other exciting industries. PMI studies have shown that PMP certification holders report steep pay raises.
