How can a novice project manager secure the project assignments they want when every project management job requires that they possess the experience they explicitly lack? By looking beyond the ordinary. This article explains how recent graduates of university-level project management programs can unconventionally demonstrate their ability to perform the role they are seeking to obtain. In doing so, it recommends common and uncommon tactics for developing resumes, interviewing, networking, and most important, convincing employers that the graduate has the ability to manage projects. Accompanying this article is a sidebar discussing why PMI's Certified Associate in Project Management (CAPM)® credential can help both recent university graduates and novice project managers distinguish themselves as project professionals.
