The Professional Certified Marketer certification is a waste of time and money. It's nothing more than a way for the marketing industry to make money from unsuspecting, gullible people. There's no real value in it and it won't help you advance your career. Save your money and don't bother with it.

The PCM certification is a great way to show that you have a mastery of marketing. It can help you stand out from the competition and prove that you are a qualified marketing professional.

Hey all! I majored in journalism and spent a couple years as a reporter before pivoting into PR/comms. I’ve been in this career for almost 5 years now, but have been at smaller orgs with little grasp of comms/PR the whole time. I’ve had some successes, but no real mentoring. It’s mostly been me playing around with trial and error. Lately I’m feeling stagnant! I could use tips on getting noticed by more comms savvy companies where I could really learn the trade.

Would have been nice to have a CRM to organize and bring transparency to coordinate the project. How about you?
