Why is taking the PMP certificate worthwhile? Is it useful for managers?
First of all, within the industry, a project manager, having a PMP certificate is already the consensus. And when it comes to interviews, if it is the same age group and the same background, then someone with the certificate in hand will definitely have an advantage. The way big companies are screened is also through one, two or three rounds of interviews to get in.
If the first hurdle is HR using the certificate screening resume screening off, the threshold of the interview can not pass.Then there is no way for getting your offer. As the experience of my previous university classmate,he took the interview of a large enterprise project management position.HR directly asked him whether he has PMP project management certificate It is also true that a short interview needs to take this way to know through your overall ability. The certificate, at least, can prove that you have a certain theoretical basis.
If you know that a diploma from a famous university is the door to enter central enterprises, state-owned enterprises and famous enterprises, you know that PMP is the door to apply for project management and project manager positions. What does HR think of this certificate? It’s that the position requires you to have it, but you don’t, so you’re screened out.
The PMP certificate is currently required for some projects in China in the tendering process. There are over ten million level projects in some large, multinational, national, institutions, central enterprises and state-owned enterprises, the tender clearly to use this certificate.It can at least on behalf of bidding.It shows that bidding companies have considerable project management personnel who can undertake the project.This is the basic requirement.
Does the variety of undergraduate internships make the difference? No, at least not in a significant way.And the path to success is not necessarily smoother, better or brighter for those are in a top school than for those who are not.
So why does HR focus on the qualifications? Why don’t they start with the brighter resumes?
The PMP certificate does not represent the holder of the certificate has a high level of management.But at least it represents the holder has a certain learning, planning, self-management and self-improvement motivation.The role of the national exam of the Qualification Certificate of Computer and Software Technology Proficiency, professional qualifications and other types of industry level certificate arealso the same.Imagine that is a teaching certificate necessary for a good teacher? But without a teaching qualification, you can’t even enter the threshold of being a teacher now.
Obviously, HR views PMP as more simple.Thereare project needs and the company needs.And maybe even because the company has the next big single need of these certificates, paying the social security will be able to bid with.As for whether the holder really have to go to the management of the project in the future, perhaps it is not in their consideration.
The PMP is a professional qualification, a legal practitioner’s qualification and a securities practitioner’s qualification.And it also as the same as the teacher’s qualification mentioned earlier.If you have these qualification, then you have the way to enter the threshold of project management.As for a bid name, an assistant, a manager, or a project directorafter you enter it, it depends on your personal project management experience and personal level.
CPA is very useful.Some graduates are so capable that they take the exam when they finish their senior year. You can even apply for a job in a very prestigious company with this certificate. But will you earn USD 4732.38 a year? No. But a veteran accountant who has worked for more than 8 years with an intermediate accounting title may be able to earn that salary per year.
Is the judicial exam or legal licensing difficult? It’s the hardest! There are fresh graduates who have passed the exam.But you take this fresh certificate to join a law firm and immediately earn USD 56788.60 a year to go to the top of life? What are you thinking?
PMP certification, for just graduated or not two or three years of work experience of college students, can not play a role.You can not apply for a project manager who owns monthly salary of more than USD 1892.95.If you really apply on, it will not let you to lead the project with this certificate.
But for those who with five years, eight years or more of work experience have gone through the medium and large projects really, receiving from USD 2839.43 to USD 5524.25 or even higher annual salary in a first-line, new first-line cityis not a dream.This certificate is really useful for project management professionals and can be the icing on the cake if you don’t go for the management route but for the technical expertise.
The PMP certificate is the first step in screening management talent.Many companies require a PMP certificate when recruiting.A PMP certificate helps a lot in interviews.So HR values the PMP certificate.
