I have been so busy with work all these days to the extent that I have even ignored some of my own professional goals. I would not blame it completely on work, it is a mix of being busy and being lazy. I have tried to complete the PMP certification, without any success, after rescheduling the exam 12 times. I realized the need for being ‘Certified’ just now with all the turmoil going on with the company I work for. I immediately became a member of PMI ( and also a member of North Carolina PMI (NCPMI.Org) chapter. I intend to complete the certification ASAP. Any tips and suggestions are welcome.

    I might be able to help you with your goal for PMP certification. I am a PMP and now preparing for PgMP.

    BTW, let me introduce myself – I am also based at RTP and currently work at Quintiles (one of the large CROs). Maybe we can sync up sometime?!
