Looking to specialize in privacy and was considering getting the CIPP/CIPM/CIPT. I already have my CISSP and CISA. Is it worth it?
Hi, for the past year I have been studying IT for a career change, and studying for Comptia A+, I have now passed Core1, on Friday I have my Core2 then getting the Certification. For an entry level position as a Cyber Security Consultant with no experience, so all training would be on the job, what should the expected salary be (living in London) , some advice would be great. I have landed a job, and would like to know if the offer is decent.
I passed my PMP thanks to this sub group.
I have passed Above Target in the People section, and T in the other sections.
It was 95% situational questions.
Thave used AR's mock exams, and used my wrong answers to figure out my weakness and where I truly stand. I didn't purchase AR's course, just the mock exam simulator.
The 200 agile questions by David McLachlan were amazing, it really helped me in adapting to an agile mindset. TIA simulator n Joseph Phillip is useful.

Has anyone completed the Google PM certification? If so, did you find it to be beneficial to your PM career path?
I’m looking to pivot from Finance to Proj Mgmt and currently working through the Google course in order to sit for the CAPM. My only PM experience comes from stepping in on accounts I manage, where there is no PM presence. That means, most of those tasks were related to the budget and scoping, not necessarily execution. Is this enough to land a PM role?

I feel like I'm not communicating my needs to my husband well. Throughout my pregnancy I've been making an effort to calmly communicate where I need his help. He says he understands but it's never actioned. Eg I asked him to be more involved during pregnancy by educating himself on pregnancy, birth and childcare. When I noticed he wasn't doing any of it, I signed both of us for various courses and webinars which he did attend but wasn't attentive (slept through most of it) even when nudged. Cntd
