    Default Question for project managers....

    Hi. I have my agile scrum prince2 qualifications. Is there anything else that others would recommend? I'm looking to open up the possibility of working in other areas, still in the project management field. I've heard that the it security industry pays well, are there any particular certifications that would lend themselves to working in that field?

    There's a reason it says "Abandon hope" at the top. Just saying, like.
    Sorry don't understand, where should it go then? What's wrong with it being in general?

    Brexit is having a wee in the middle of the room at a house party because nobody is talking to you, and then complaining about the smell.

    Stop collecting certifications and get some experience.

    Looking at CVs this weekend.

    2 PMs with every cert under the sun, some minor E2E projects. (aka professional students)
    1 PM with a P2 F that he took years ago, just finished a €30M E2E DC. (aka project manager)

    Guess who I am interviewing tomorrow

    General is a bearpit where anything goes and we can call you what we want and can use the winker emoticon with gay abandon. In the professional fora we cannot.

    NLUK knows his stuff. You may as well wander over to /r/atheism and announce you are the Pope, than attempt to ask PM related questions in General.

    As a recruiter of PMs. I am far more interested in what people can practically do and what they have done and how than in which tests they passed. Something like Prince 2 will get you past an agents filter and shows you may understand common terminology, nothing more.
