The certification is no assurance of a ‘job in waiting with wings spread wide’ and not a down or flip side of certification –its ground reality. Surely and certainly, PMP® does equip you with the knowledge considered essential and emboldens with a positive spirit to take the ‘corporate bull by its horn’. Given a choice would you want to flaunt your certification or your crazy pay check with incredible numbers? My take? Simple: a judicious mix of both. It’s left to the discretion of the individual in the given circumstances to highlight which but there have compelling circumstances with dire straits in trying to cloak the pay over post. Market sentiments reek stronger of the smell that emanates when one reads headline as like ‘Certified PMPs earn 25% more than non-PMPs*. It can be dismissed as subjective bereft of substance but the market seems to buy that by gorging the plate dirt clean with no leftover. Such is the frenzy with respondents react in this space that any such comparison is lapped and when numeric data are inserted to drive home the message, the market feeds on it and never dumps.
Possessing a certification in not just a cosmetic facelift; it’s all about cognizance. It stamps your understanding of PMP concept in measurable data good enough for interpretation and thereby allows validation of your profile that’s close to correct. Globally recognized and demanded, the PMP® certification course is an accreditation clearly demonstrates you have the experience, education and competency to lead, manage and direct projects. PMP is a definite differentiating factor to distinguish you from peers. Very seldom an advertisement these days is placed without mentioning PMP as a mandate of skill and talent acquisition. A certified professional earns for sure 10k dollars more as compared to an uncertified one. You are better with it than without.
