In a small community, where would you feel a PMP is warranted?


Kevin Wilske Ludington, MI

I have the option to attain a PMP and curious if it will hinder me in a small town hiring population.

Hi Kevin,

PMP Certification is the hottest cert in this area. I'm in Charlottesville VA but I am aware of the value of PMP certification along the East Coast. Being certified enables you to choose what field interests you most, because you can apply PMP skills to any field. It's quite valuable. I don't see where being in a small town would make any difference. They need your skills!

Thank you for your service.

Hi Kevin,

Thank you for your question, and an even bigger thank you for your service. From what I've heard and read, there are incredible benefits to having the PMP certification. I found this question posted to ACP AdvisorNet a few years back that has so much great information about PMP certification and the benefits.


I hope this helps. Best of luck!
