“Having the PMP credential behind your name signifies to current and future employers that you take your profession and your career seriously,” said Robin Kistler, director of LSU Executive Education. “It is a great way to stand out among a highly competitive work force and gives you the opportunity to tackle more challenging projects to advance your career.”
