Through my current position at work, I developed an interest in marketing and a new direction for my career. Luckily for me, SkillUp Finger Lakes offers a Marketing Industry Path. After taking the self-assessment, I was able to add Path specific courses to my Plan that helped me fill skill gaps and put everything I learned to work.
After earning Mastery Level in all the courses, I wanted to go even further and earn an industry recognized certification. Now once a week, I’m taking self-directed one hour classes, all online, that will prepare me to sit for and pass the Certified Associate in Project Management (CAPM) Exam.
I already had a degree in another area before becoming interested in marketing and project management and SkillUp offered me the opportunity to further my skills and education without a cost to myself or my employer. And it’s paying off! I’ve already earned a promotion and raise and there’s still more room to grow – Jen, Outreach Project Manager, FLWIB
