Cracking the PM interview

like

Bought “Cracking the PM career.” Let’s see how that goes. It includes the interview part.

PMP is revamping their curriculum. New version release slated for Aug 1st. Maybe read the new manual. Its supposed to focus less on deliverables and more on overall project delivery

Yeah, I maintain it but don’t follow it to the T.

Can anyone share their experiences / opinion of online (phone/video) counselling? Prior to COVID, I met with a psychotherapist in-person who worked wonders, but haven't spoken with her in over two years. Currently a lot eating at my mind and I want to talk with her (or someone) for the sake of my mental health but I feel like online counselling isn't going to be effective or help me in the way I need (all counselling services are online only in my area). Any thoughts would be much appreciated.

I’ve always thought climbing the corporate ladder is what needed to be done to be successful, and I’ve worked hard to do that. Every job has always been a role up from the previous and with an increase in pay. However at 36, I’m realizing that is no longer what I want to do. I don’t care about climbing the ladder, I’m content with making a livable wage and being at the role I’m in now. The older I get the more I lose interest in pushing to get to the top.
