Hello, all.

 

I'm interested in getting some feedback here.  I'm currently a technical recruiter for a Managed Services group, and I'm looking to advance my career to the next level (either with my current employer or off the reservation). 

I'm looking into Project Management courses and certification.  I've had leadership roles with varying degrees of authority in my past, but always on a fairly small level.  Either Project Coordinating or Project Management looks like the next best step (to me, anyway).

So one question I have is how much of an advantage do any of you see in the PMP Certification?  Or has anyone else out there gone through a similar transition?

I realize this may be sort of a bare bones start for a discussion, but I'm willing to entertain any suggestions or questions.

 

Thanks.

Update.

After doing some research, based on my professional history, the next step would be to seek the CAPM (Certified Associate in Project Management).  I'll look for study courses either online or at some of the community colleges in my area.

Yep.  I was talking with one of my supervisors, who is certified.  He thinks I could probably meet the experience requirements based on the work I've done.  But I'd feel more confident taking a few prep courses.  My local community college offers online instructor-led courses at a relatively low cost (which is an important factor at the moment).

I think I'm going to go for it.  Just have to make sure I'm understanding the information I'm reading so far. 

Thanks for the feedback, by the way.
