I'm looking for a steel watch, more traditional in style for the budget mentioned above. Any ideas on a good inexpensive brand? Should I buy new or used to get better quality within my budget?

"Keep working, do accredited courses at night or on weekends so you gain credits towards your PMP certification, get certified, look for promotions or other jobs that require PMP certifications."

"Yeah, most quick and dirty courses are "intro to project management" or "foundations of project management" types of courses just meant to give people bare bones fundamentals. "

Project Management

I'm interested in getting more training and/or employment with project management. Is it worth the money to get a certification? Does that open any doors? A local college has a 3 day program that runs about a $1000. Before I pay that kind of money, I want to confirm the ROI.

"I have a timex easy reader.  It looks nice and does everything I need it to.  I think it retails for around 40-50 bucks."

"After you figure out what kind of hiking you'll be doing, and therefore the qualities you need in a boot, the next most important feature is fit. I would recommend going to REI (there's one in Cranston) and trying on a number of pairs to…"

"In that price point, I'd look at Merrell and Keen if you don't need waterproofing. "

"I recently bought a no frills Citizen for $125 off Ebay. WR up to 100 meters and it is powered by Eco-Drive so I will not have to ever change the battery. I would think Ebay would be your best destination though."

Evening, gents!

Been a lurker here at AoM for years. Decided to become a member a few weeks ago and thought I'd introduce myself. The community has been great so far. It adds to the AoM experience quite a bit. Anyway, my name is Landon. I'm not much use physically thanks to a type of tumor I have, so I like to work on my mind rather than my body. Some of my favorite articles from AoM are Ben Franklin's 13 virtues and the 3-part series about willpower, how it's depleted and how you can strengthen it. Well,…See More
