Muhammad,

Please hold on before you submit your application. I read it over and found a few things that needs to be changed.

Overall, some tasks need to be changed to fit PMI terminologies better and some descriptions are too vague.

There's is a snow storm in my city right now, I promise I will give you a more detailed explanation when I get home.

Best,

Muhammed,

To elaborate my last post further:

Things you did great: Project descriptions are concise, they follow the correct format with the proper domains, objectives and results are clear.

Things you need to change/improve:
1) Use PMI terminology - what you wrote is fine but I think it will be better for the application reviewer to understand if you use more PMI lingos
Some examples:
-Use "developed RACI chart" instead of "define roles and responsibility"
-"Execute tasks defined" - is the role of the project team, a project manager directs and manages project work.
-"Conduct code reviews" - the reviewer may not understand that

2) Some descriptions are too vague and do not deliver any value in the descriptions
-"Transferred the final product" - To whom? The paying customer? Or the operations team?
-"Handed over the final product and documents to the customer" - Have you confirmed approval of the product from the customer? What comes with the handover process?

Happy to look over this with you again after you edit them.

Best,
Joe
