My experience with PMI has really been fantastic. I think my involvement with PMI has definitely promoted my career because it not only changed how my career is perceived from the outside, but also how I perceive it from the inside. As a global volunteer leader on the Next Gen Insight Team, I no longer identify myself only by the job that I have but realize that I can be so much more.
Madeleine Schulz
Project Manager at PTC
It’s been really amazing so far, I have evolved and grown more in my career as a PMI volunteer than as a PMP certificate holder. Being in the organization, speaking with like minds, working on global and local initiatives to change lives has proved beyond impactful and I’ll love to continue this for as long as I can.

PMI has helped me create a global network and given opportunity to influence the youth and aspiring project managers that helped them pursue a career in the PM field.
