Looking for advice on Project Manager certifications to open future leadership and PM opportunities.

My role continually seems to be more of a hybrid Project Manager and anything under IT Infrastructure and Support. I manage our support team, our infrastructure build out contractors, and continually build out out projects in JIRA and our (lack of) IT documentation in Confluence.

Should I consider a PMP or other cert? What advice would prepare me for further advancement as a Director or VP?

I’ve been trying different ways to make my resume stand out. Since I did website copywriting as a side hustle, I thought I’d construct my profile like a “service”.
What I did was summarize my main expertise and who I helped. Then I have a bulleted list indicating how I can help. I also added a few quotes I remembered from VPs I’ve worked for. (I’m a product manager) This is the equivalent of “What Customers are Saying”. Hiring Managers: What do you think of this approach?

Lel. So I've had a pretty awful 2020 and every single time I want to do something relaxing someone in my family decided to do some pain in the ass thing to screw it up. Usually it's my mom and her condescending comments but yesterday my grandmother fell when it was just her and me at home and decided that 'god was going to help her up' and started screaming her head off to god asking for help. Who helped her up? Me. I need a freaking break.
