Description

Currently there is no official course on how to become a PMO like there is one for Project Management for the Project Manager role. This course is not only ground breaking in the regard of providing lessons to become a PMO, it is a practical course which explains to you exactly what you need to understand as to what are the type of tasks a PMO does so you know what the job entails.

When I first got into the PMO role, it was a newly developing role that no one could have been available to explain to me about what to expect from the role or what it was about. The company hiring me had some vague ideas about the role but I literally had to figure it out on my own, discover it and create the PMO mold for myself.

This course provides you the info I wish I had known upfront so I would have had the proper introduction to handle the tasks I was charged with and not wonder where it fit in the organization or what was the purpose of what I was doing in the first place.

Now with my years of experience, I can relay to you the practical information on how the role works, what it is about and what you need to know in order to be sufficiently competent to do the role whether you want a career in it or if you prefer to use it as a backup option while still pursuing your true career of passion.

What I also love about the PMO role is that it by its nature, you are not locked into in the role so that you can continue pursue a career in another field if you are not ready give up your passion. The PMO role also is very stimulating so you feel challenged and it pays well so you won't be struggling financially. If you decide to continue work just as a PMO, you won't suffer because you will be well compensated and feel that you can and are making a difference as a PMO.

On top of this, the PMO role is one of those few international roles that isn't dependent on the whims of the local market in terms of recognizing your degree or crediting your previous work experience in your specialization because it is more about transferable skills.

I understand the challenges of breaking into a foreign job market without being an expatriated by a domestic company. Let me help you by saving you time and aggravation as I can explain to you the skillset and show you what you need to know in order to get a job in the market you currently reside.

Who is the target audience?
  • Anyone who is having a tough time finding work or in a transition period and looking for a new purpose, especially migrants in a foreign country and recent graduates having trouble breaking into the job market.
