Getting ahead in project management, Southampton
Posted by APM on 1st May 2014
The Wessex branch returned to the Ageas Bowl in Southampton and welcomed Lindsay Scott of Arras People to make her well-received presentation 'Getting ahead in project management'.
This event provided an opportunity to find out more about the current project management market place for jobs and careers in the UK.
This market has seen many changes over the last four years. It has become increasingly competitive, with many project professionals experiencing frustration in finding the right opportunity and successfully interviewing for roles.
In her presentation, Lindsay Scott shared her experiences and insights into how project managers, programme managers and PMO professionals can differentiate themselves and stand out in a crowded market place. Lindsay provided practical guidance on how to find the right career opportunity; how to present yourself (against what organisations are looking for); the project management CV and interviews.
Lindsay also provided some guidance for organisations on placing the right advert to recruit.
