This has been a big week for me professionally. I have taught an in-person PMP exam prep course this week. It has been an eye-opening experience (You can watch my 5 lessons learned about teaching here).
I have a great opportunity to teach PMP exam prep in person this week. I am happy to guide students towards receiving their PMPs and experiencing immeasurable career opportunities. Every American Fortune 500 has project manager openings. Furthermore, many project manager job descriptions mandate PMP or receiving a PMP within 6 months. This teaching job gives me the chance to add to the PMP ranks.
AWS Training Preparation
Starting Friday, I start preparing for the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Solutions Architect Professional certification. It is my final AWS cloud computing workforce development training program. I will complete the Lynda.com/LinkedIn Learning Solutions Architect Professional learning path by next Tuesday’s training.
Recruiters Are Looking Out for Me
I am very happy that the Ohio Means Jobs (my workforce development agency) recruiters are considering me to tech and project management positions. The same with non-Ohio Means Jobs recruiters.
I have shot daily AWS and PMP instructor videos detailing my work and am happy that my LinkedIn community is supportive sharing, commenting and liking my videos. These activities increase my videos’ reach. Be on the lookout for even more ‘day in the life’ videos because I love interacting with and learning from my community.
Continuing Doing My Projectized Show Regardless of Schedule Change
Taking the PMP instructor position rearranges my 5:30pm EST Projectized project management livestream show to 7:30pm EST. I am happy that I have not quit but continued the show because so many people want to learn more about project management and earning their PMPs.

Well, that is it for a very busy and productive week. I cannot wait to restart with the Week Ahead where I will be discussing my AWS Solutions Architect Professional training and landing even more cloud computing jobs.
