Can anyone recommend a PMP certification course in NYC? Also curious if you think it's worth it.

These days I’d probably do a Scrum or Agile course instead, or better yet find a mentor who can help you implement that way of working. Of course that depends if your workflow/company is ready for that, but in general I don’t think the PMP waterfall style is really relevant anymore other than to have a knowledge of the various project management theories and blending the good/appropriate bits of them to create the workflow you need in reality.

In my opinion PMP is only relevant if you’re looking to go client side at some point since they love those certs and pay appropriately. Agencies like PMP certs in theory but won’t pay enough to make it worth it.

Applying for open positions seems like an exercise in futility this summer. I took a non-teaching (but still education related) position when COVID-19 hit because our hiring at my district stopped and contracted due to funding.

A colleague at my current job applied to two, and got a job offer within two weeks. I have an MEd?
