Build Your Project Career in 2020 and 2021

Now is the time to build your skills, your CV and your career in project management.  Now is a good time for a career change to project management as the economy starts to move forward.

Your CV

Surveys confirm that getting a new job or your next contract role is helped by having the right certifications. Developing your knowledge will help develop your career opportunities.

Certifications are one thing that many HR departments and recruiters look for as a guide when considering new candidates. Of course, progression and finding a new role or contract depends on your personality, and competencies and your experience. Often it is difficult to get your skills and motivation across in a CV, and listing a relevant certification helps.
