What are EdCC Project Management Certificate graduates doing now?
Here is some feedback from several of our Certificate Alumni after completing their certificate:
“My project management certificate helped me get my current job with Qwest communications. I'm a work effort manager and monitor installs of voice customer premise equipment for Qwest in AZ, NM, UT, ID, MT and Eastern Washington. It is a great job... and I know I would not have been considered for this job if I didn't have my project management certificate.”
- Joyce Quentin
“I'm proud to say that I have just completed a large software implementation project at the Daily Herald newspaper in Everett. My PM certificate from Edmonds gets the credit for me being hired, and the information I learned in your classes helped me to carry out a successful implementation.

“Things are going great, and you can pass on to your PM class that one of your alumni said Project Management is one of the best skills I ever added to my toolbox. Not only does it make you more marketable, but the principles apply to every job, every task at work, and every personal goal in your life. I've moved into a Producer role at Microsoft for the User Experience team, and am running events, writing web newsletters, ghost writing for communications, documenting procedures and creating instructional materials for User Experience and leadership training.”

“The public works director and deputy director/city engineer were impressed with my certificate in project management, skills in MS Project, Excel, and my recent work experience with the school district AND past management (ownership)experience with underground irrigation/drainage work. On an academic note ~ last summer I took Architectural Blueprint Reading, now I’m enrolled in Civil Construction Management & Inspection. These classes are very interesting and related to my current job and tentative new job. I wish I’d gone back to school sooner.”

“Currently I am working full time in the front office for the Seattle Thunderbirds Hockey Club as an Account Executive. I sell season tickets, group tickets, and suites. We are currently working on building a new arena in the city of Kent. I will be taking a tour at the construction site in the next couple weeks.”
- Jason Pouliott
“I am now working for a small company in Lake Stevens, only 8 miles from my home, which is a perk. It's not a project manager job, but has some aspects of PM skills involved. I also have been working on several projects for the church that I go to, this has been very fun for me. I had hoped to return to classes at EdCC by Winter, but I need to save for tuition so hopefully by Fall I'll be back to take more classes (toward Business).”
