Transitioning into Project Management
Network:304



Not sure if I can post this here.. but here goes!

I am currently completing my bachelor's with a concentration in Project Management. I will be scheduling to take the PMP soon.
I've searched for a mentor with no luck.
I have worked Accounting projects over the years, so my background is Accounting/Financial.

What is the best way to transition into Project Management.
When my Resume is looked at, all they see is Accounting.

Tonjia, the best way to transition into project management is to specifically ask for a PM assignment. Do you want to transition finance PM, or are you going to a new industry? On your resume, be sure to highlight skills that overlap with project management (teamwork, planning, managing, communication, etc). Network with a PM at the company you wish to work. Good luck.

hi Tonjia

If you would like, you can check my book on PMInterview, which includes how to transition, some resume tips and all the questions you need to break through the interview with PMBOK references.

When I first transitioned from BA, it was quite difficult for me as well. So, thought I can write a book on that ground and open for suggestions. You can also visit my blog www.careerbuggy.com (also on FB page, you can follow) for latest articles on Practical Project Management.

Here is the link to my book
