Student Profile: Jesus Rojas, PMP
I am from Venezuela, I have been working in the telecom sector since I got my BS in Electronic Engineering and I have participated in projects in the Americas including: Brazil, Argentina, Paraguay, Ecuador, Colombia, Venezuela, Mexico and USA.
I believe this as an important achievement in my career and also I think it is crucial for management positions. Many important companies also recognize this certification for their project managers and I am pushing inside the company I work to consider this as a mandatory requirement for all project management positions.
The most difficult part was to allocate time and share between family, work and sports.
How did I learn about the The PM PrepCast? I was searching on the Apple App Store for Project Management study applications where I found the “PMC 2012”, I read it all and I said to myself -these guys really know all the steps to be a PMP, so I bought the Diamond PMP Training Package.
What is missing from The PM PrepCast? Well, the only occasion when I felt there was no answer from the PM PrepCast was when I required support, I wrote an email and I never got answer.
My #1 recommendation is: prepare a realistic study plan according to your other daily activities (family, work, sports, …) where you can go through all the podcasts while reading the PMBOK and other references (It is always good to compare definitions and points of view) and finally have at least one month to do simulations before your exam.
