Here’s what’s been going on with me over the past year or so. In September, 2009, I signed up for a few courses that have been on my wish-list for years.
Second, I took the advice of just about every Career Coach and HR person I’d been speaking with and signed up for the University of Toronto School of Business Project Management course. I’ve worked with some excellent project managers from agencies like Organic, Inc., and I knew that this was a skill set that needed development. This is a three-term course that ends July 2010. At that point, I hope to write my PMP exam.
I’m really enjoying my PM classes and learning about the tools available to properly track all aspects of any project – I wish I had this knowledge while running the Toronto Digital Image Festival for eight years! Costing and trend analysis is pure enlightenment for someone who did it ‘the hard way’.
I’m also consulting in the Visual Effects and Special Event industries during my down time, also known as ‘Saturdays’.
But right now, I’m looking for something between a summer Internship, a Project Co-ordinator, or a PM position at an Interactive or Mobile Agency, or with a web or software development company. Email me for a resume! – R
