A recent article published by the Project Management Institute (PMI) indicates that companies seeking a “competitive edge” are looking for “candidates with project management expertise.” For that reason, the Project Management Professionals (PMPs) at Cheetah Learning (http://www.CheetahLearning.com) are offering a free exam so candidates can find out if they have what it takes to become a project manager.
“The course is available online, and participants can start taking it as soon as their registration is completed,” a company spokesperson said. Details are available at http://www.CheetahLearning.com/events/online/PMPAssess/overview.asp?group_id=230-pmpassessment
According to a PMI article headlined “4 Valuable Skills to Break Into Project Management,” 44 percent of 353 IT executives in a Computerworld survey described the skills they’d like to see in potential job candidates. They were: Business acumen, Project management basics, Emotional intelligence and Assertiveness.
