I have always been handling crucial projects for the two organizations that I have worked for in 10 years of my career. Every year even after successfully handling projects for the organization I was surpassed when it comes to promotions. It was very frustrating and I had started to lose my confidence. In one of the review meetings with the HR Manager, the lady suggested that I should look forward to and plan to get a certification from PMI for my entire experience in handling different projects. I understood what she was trying to tell me. The idea was to have a professional certification to complement my experience. I immediately opted for the certification and within a few months was able to rise to the position of a Project Manager in my current organization.
