Between now and the end of 2020, nearly 8 Million project management jobs will be created. That's a lot of opportunity. Today, we don't have enough certified project managers to fill those jobs. That's your job security.
When the going is easy, everyone can have a job. When the going is more difficult, employers search for the people with certification first. Your CAPM or PMP prove that you have studied the best practices of the project management profession.
