Student Profile: Jean Bosco Rwagaju, PMP
My name is Jean Bosco Rwagaju and I’ve post-graduated in Human Resources Management and Labor Law from Paris-France. I started my career in Paris as Employee Relations&Safety Counselor. I moved to Corporate Labor Attorney, then to Director of Human Resources/Project Manager. Due to economic crisis, my company closed out and I lost my job. I applied for the same positions, but the outcome was negative. So, I decided to prepare an international certification in order to relocate. I started enhancing my English skills. One of my friends advised me on LinkedIn to take the PMP courses and become self-employed by creating my consultancy firm.
Since 2013, I have a consultancy firm in Business Management, especially in Human Resources Management Strategy and Project Management.
I think the PMP Certification is one the straight forward, astounding professional certifications recognized worldwide. Moreover, it fits with both my purpose of using my ability of listening, quick-thinking-decision making, my enthusiasm and my integrity to help build trust and positive constructive relationships between people and my goal of working internationally.
The most difficult part of the PMP studies is to find the focused-PMP exam simulators. PMBOK is not sufficient to enable you pass the PMP certification. On my first try, I only focused on PMBOK and some PMP exam simulators. To pass the PMP exam on the first try, you need to utilize various tools. I will recommend the PM PrepCast and Rita Mulcahy books, and get onto your PMI Chapter.
I learnt about the PM PrepCast when googling online the PMP Certification. It dawned on me that the PM PrepCast is cheaper, easy to understand and simple to use, anytime from anywhere.
As the majority of The PMP exams questions are situational, you should add more situational questions such as what comes first, second… or what should be done in this situation...
My first recommendation: apart from the PM PrepCast and Rita Mulcahy book, 7th edition, below are some tools/links that helped me prepare and pass the PMP exam:
