When I saw the ad for the job of business analyst in a computer storage company, I was not sure about it. I recently did CompTIA Project+ and had 2 years experience in project management. The salary was generous. So I decided to give it a try. I went for an interview. After a week, I got the call. It was selected for the job. It was one of the biggest surprises of the year because I saw candidates with 15 years of project management experience. When I asked my boss about it, he said that I had CompTIA Project+ certification edge over other viable candidates. I can't thank CompTIA enough.
