Given that the promotions will be slim to none in the next few years, I am on a quest to get as many certifications as possible to be ready when the market is up again. In your experience, what certifications have been most useful or in demand? I am going thinking PMP, CISA, Tableau?

Does anyone know what a PMP (project mgt professional) does? We hv one on our team and I asked that person to schedule a meeting for a group and received pushback that, that is not that person’s job. I didn’t mean any disrespect I just didn’t know what that person is supposed to be doing....

Which should I work on trying to obtain? PMP, ITIL, Scrum Master, or others? I have taken the PMP exam before about 3 years years ago but failed and didn’t have the courage to retake it again. However, I have been laid off recently so thinking of what I can do to be better/stand out. Thanks in advance!

Currently have a PMP, don’t feel like I need it and haven’t logged any training towards keeping it active over the last few years. Expires in 60 days. Should I stretch to get it renewed or let it die? Not sure it every really helped me anyway.

Is it worth getting an MBA if you have a PMP? Seeing lots of different opinions on this. Also, it is important to go to a big reputable grad school like Hopkins, Penn State or do MBA programs at smaller (much cheaper) online schools like University of Arizona etc. hold the same weight when it comes to boosting your career? Granted one is only considering accredited MBA programs & schools.

PMP test question. Feel like an idiot: took a super intense prep course in March. Because of covid they made it virtual. I really don't learn well in a virtual environment. Then had to postpone taking the test also bc of covid and ended up failing it (test felt nothing like the mock exams). Very deflating. Now 4 months later trying to figure out how much independent study it's going to take to pass it. Any tips or encouragement? Would like to knock it out in the next 2-3 weeks.
