You’ve tried to land the job of your dreams. You’ve worked and struggled and clawed trying to get into a …
Once upon a midnight dreary, while I pondered weak and weary,
Over many a project artifact until my eyes were sore,
While I nodded, nearly napping, suddenly there came a tapping…
You wouldn’t like me when I’m angry…
Satisfaction guaranteed or your money back.

You got the call.

What are they going to ask? How can I best prepare for this? What if I prepare for the wrong things?
What can you do when you feel like you’ve hit a bump on your project manager career path? Here are my thoughts, and I invite you to add your own comments with advice for this professional.
A business student recently interviewed me via email. She is interested in project management and this was part of an assignment to reach out to people via Twitter to interview about what they do and the state of their industry/role.

I asked her permission to share the interview with you, I hope you find it helpful. Leave comments on what you agree and do not agree with!

He cited a bountiful list with a question of whether he needs to know all of these in and out:
I and the rest of the PMI New Media council had the opportunity to interview the editors of “Project Management Circa 2025;” David I. Cleland, PhD, PMI Fellow, and Bopaya Bidanda, PhD. This is a collaborative effort by 41 authors to predict the state of various parts of the project management discipline and how it will be implemented 15 years in the future.
