The Next Chapter
Here’s what our Veterans Say
Kelly, from day one to today, you have been awesome! You are prompt, professional and dedicated to taking care of us through this PMP® journey. I wanted to take a second to say thank you. Eric is lucky to have you on the team for sure.
I just wanted to take a moment to thank your team for the incredible content at Vets2PM. But, I especially wanted to take a moment to let you know how much I appreciate Cathy's time, effort, and energy in assembling my professional resume. This piece of paper makes me look like a water walker!
I know she's busy -- I hope she gets an assistant, a corner office, and a raise soon, haha.
Seriously, though. Thank you for everything from your team.
Thank you and the entire team for a rock solid foundation, support, and tools necessary in achieving this goal.
Vets2PM helped me translate the military vernacular into civilian language. The best analogy I have come up with is this: when someone buys a house they may have found the perfect place but not go through with the purchase because of something as simple as the wrong color paint inside. If the seller would put a new coat of paint on the walls the house becomes more appealing. Vets2PM helps the veteran “paint” their career with a different color making them more appealing to potential employers. I didn’t learn new skills, instead I learned how to present my experience in a more palatable way to civilians.
Apart from receiving my PMP® certification, the resume service and career skills help has been the biggest continuing help for me in my job search and placement.
Now after seeing several veterans transition I would say you need to take an honest assessment of your military career. Look at what you did in the military, get your PMP® certification, and find a job in a field that interests you. Project management can be a lifelong career or the stepping stone you need to get into a career field where you can truly shine as a veteran.
I did it. I just passed the PMP® yesterday! After a month of hardcore studying, and long weekend of cramming I passed the test. I can't recommend the Andy Crowe "how to pass the test" book highly enough.
That test was easily the hardest test I have ever taken. It puts everything I did to get my MBA to shame. The fact that there is two right answers to each question, and you have to pick the 'best' makes it a real challenge. When I pushed the end exam button, I was anything but sure of my results. Luckily, I passed above target in all 5 process groups!
Thanks for the excellent instruction in Yokota. Several of your stand-out phrases helped me in my studies and exam choices.
I recently attend PM webinar in Sep/Oct and during my time Cathy reached out to me and offered to build me a resume. I gave her multiple documents and this week, I am happy to say, she emailed me my resume and I am beyond happy with it. I can’t thank her enough.
Please pass on my appreciation to Cathy and her unmatched skills.
