You'll get the terminology and the basics of what a project manager does. You'll be able to talk-the-talk and use it to position yourself to move into project management.

  • Powerful Positioning – Learn ways to tailor your resume, LinkedIn profile, and other branding opportunities that can make all the difference in getting noticed by hiring managers.

Each module gives you information, guidance, checklists, worksheets, and even word-for-word scripts that you can use for resumes, networking, and interviews - so you come across with confidence.  

 

Meet your Instructor:


Hi! I'm Leigh Espy, career coach, founder of the website and blog ProjectBliss.net and author of Bad Meetings Happen to Good People: How to Run Meetings That Are Effective, Focused, and Produce Results.

Not only have I worked as a project manager for 20 years, but I've also managed and HIRED project managers. 

I know the interview questions they’re asking, what the motivations are behind those questions, and what WHAT THEY'RE LOOKING FOR IN A CANDIDATE. There are KEY things that hiring managers are looking for...

and if you know the secrets, you can stand out against the sea of other candidates. 

When I ask people what they’ve tried so far to get a job in a project management career they tell me what’s not working for them: 

  • They’ve seen job postings and don’t apply because they don't believe they can get the job. They take themselves out of the competition before even trying.
  • They’ve sent out tons of resumes and only gotten silence in return. This approach rarely works because your resume gets lost in the flood of other resumes.

  • If they do get an interview, they’re not sure how to use the right language to give hiring managers confidence in their abilities.

But because I’ve been successfully using techniques to get hired for positions that aren’t even posted and have even been the one doing the interviewing and hiring, I have firsthand knowledge of how to successfully get into a great project management career.

I want to show you how to do it.

 

You may be asking…What if I've never been a project manager before?

This course will tell you how to use project management language to describe your current skills and experience. You most likely already have the experience that qualifies you to get a project management job. You just need to know how to show it

 

And you don't HAVE to START with a specific project manager title. If you're not quite ready to apply for a project manager title, I'll show you the right job titles to target that can lead right to a project manager job! 

 

 

THIS COURSE helps you make that move. 

The course will give you a step-by-step approach to using tactics that work. No more blasting out resumes and hoping for the best. You’ll be able to take steps that actually increase your chances of positioning yourself expertly, finding jobs that others may not even know about, and handling interviews with skill and confidence.  

Project Management is a career path that offers challenge, fulfillment, and great pay.  

Project Management can be the perfect career, providing a chance to do satisfying work, while making an impact.

 

 

Please be aware that the Project Management Career Launch Course is NOT FOR YOU IF... 

  • You're looking for advanced project management training or certification prep. This course teaches you some project management basics and what you need to focus on to get a job in project management.
  • You're looking for a quick fix for a fast job. It will take work and it will take time. 
  • You expect a six-figure job out of the gate. Many project managers commonly make 100,000/year and above. If you're just starting out, you'll likely start at a junior level. If you perform well you can move into higher-paying roles. And many project managers even go on to executive-level positions!

The Project Management Career Launch IS FOR YOU IF...

  • You’ve dreamed of getting into a project management career that not only provides fulfilling work and great pay – it can lead to many other amazing roles beyond project management. 

  • You know that it will take work on your part – and you’re willing to do it. But you’ll be spending time on the right kind of work that really gets results.

  • You know you can do more with your skills and you're ready to take your career to the next level.

Katie Walter
I highly recommend this course to anyone who considers him/herself a potential project manager! This course will help you better understand project management roles and opportunities - as well as how to network, prepare your resume, and stand out for a project management role. The course is so accessible and well organized that I immediately felt I had all of the support I needed to prepare for an upcoming interview for a position in project management. Although completely new to project management, I knew that I had several transferable skills that would make me great at it; this course filled gaps in my knowledge and facilitated reflection vital to understanding my strengths and weaknesses. As a result, I was ready to put my best foot forward when interviewing!

"Even though I’ve been a project manager for several years, I knew this course would be a valuable investment in my career. After working at my current job for several years, I needed to brush up on my job search and interviewing skills. The course helped in areas I was deficient in, like networking, branding, and explaining how work I’ve done over the past few years is a great fit for what a hiring manager is looking for in a candidate. The course showed me how to do that. I used all this information for a phone interview on Monday and got a call back for a face-to-face interview right away. The templates and examples on how to answer tricky questions are especially helpful, and I’m looking forward to applying it all in my follow-up interview!"
