Project Management Career Launch Helps you say goodbye to frustration and Hello to a guided step-by-step path to your new Project Management job!


It's your tool box for everything you need to break into a project management career. 


EVEN IF YOU’VE NEVER BEEN A PROJECT MANAGER BEFORE

 

DO YOU WANT A JOB THAT…

  • is meaningful?
  • lets you grow and reach your potential?
  • has a career path that regularly pays beyond $100,000 per year

 

Project management jobs offer ALL THIS.


Ask yourself…

  • Do you enjoy working with teams?
  • Do you love collaborating with others to solve problems?
  • Are you a curious-minded person who loves to learn?

Project Management could be your PERFECT DREAM JOB.

 

Maybe you’ve known this already. 

 

But getting a Project Management Job can be a struggle. 


You may have tried this before: 

You may have already tried to get a job in project management. Perhaps you’ve been applying to jobs and sending your resume into what seems like a black hole…

…never hearing back…

…wondering if anyone’s even sees it.... 

 

And it’s frustrating.

 

But the truth is, you’re competing against people who use high-level tactics to get ahead. They’ve mastered the art of the job search. 

 

And these tactics are NOT taught in school. 

Actually, many people never speak about them. 

But top performers know how to use these tricks to get ahead in the job search game. 

 

I happened to learn about these tactics from a friend years ago while I was searching for a job.

 

I was shocked to learn what others were doing that I wasn’t. 

 

The very first time I tried these approaches, I got a job offer right out of the gate! 

 

I was floored. I wondered what else I didn’t know. What were others doing to get ahead of the competition and get amazing job offers?

 

I decided then to learn the secrets the best candidates knew. I wanted to know all the tricks and tactics top performers were using to get an advantage over everyone else. 

 

Over time – through years of research and experimentation – I’ve pulled together the tactics top performers use to get ahead in the job market. 


I WAS FLOUNDERING IN MY CAREER 

But also, all this time, I’d been struggling to figure out what I wanted to do with my life. I had friends who seemed to have it all together. They had impressive-sounding, high paying jobs. 

 

NOT ME…

I was grown. I had a college degree. But I was still trying to figure out what I wanted to do with my life. 

I knew I wanted to do something meaningful, that let me use my skills in a way that was fulfilling and rewarding. 

And yet I was still working in low paying jobs that didn’t have any future. 

 

I KNEW I wasn’t reaching my potential. 

I knew I could do so much more. 


Then I had a BREAKTHROUGH...


Using the job search tactics I'd learned through all my research, I was offered a project management job - one I didn't even apply for! (I'll teach you how to do that in the course.)


It was the best thing that ever happened to me. 


I'd finally found a job that met all my dream job criteria...

It was rewarding. 

It was challenging and let me use my skills more fully. 

It had great career growth potential.


And the pay possibilities were greater than any other jobs I'd had. 


I'd found the PERFECT CAREER.

But How Do You Get an Amazing 

Project Management Job?

 

Even when you know project management has all these amazing things to offer, how do you go about getting a project management job? 

 

Especially when there are others who’ve managed to learn the job search secrets that get them ahead so much faster? 

 

It’s a lot tougher if you don’t know how to navigate the competitive playing field. 

 

But those people who seem to have it all together…(you may even know people like that)…you know you’re just as smartas they are. 

 

You know you’re just as capable as they are.

 

You know you’re just as deserving as they are.

 

 

Thinking of all the years you’ve spent working in a job where you’re undervalued and underappreciated…

 

You know it’s time to make a move. 

 

It’s time to take action and get that dream career.

 

It’s time to move into a career path that can give you all you know you’re capable of - and all you deserve. 

 

IMAGINE…being able to use your skills for a job that’s meaningful – helping others solve problems – all with a great salary and fantastic career path. 

 

Instead of feeling frustrated in a job that doesn’t let you reach your potential

Knowing you could do more…

You could move into a project management career that lets you do meaningful work while earning higher pay.

 

And project management careers can lead to so many more opportunities.

 

And there’s strong demand for Project Managers. 

By 2027, employers will need 87.7 million individuals working in project management-oriented roles.

according to the “PMI Job Growth and Talent Gap” report

 

But navigating a job search can be a lot of work…

 

You might even know this already…

·       Maybe you’ve sent your resume out dozens (or hundreds) of times and you haven’t heard back.  

·       Maybe you don’t even know where to apply.  

·       Maybe you don’t even know how to go about getting into a project management career.  

 

You’ve got to know how to find those jobs, grab the attention of hiring managers, and then score an interview. 

 

And when you do, you’ve got prove you’re the ideal candidate for the job.

 

It can take months and months of intense effort. 


But What If You Had the Secrets?

What if you had insider secrets to getting great job offers

 in a project management career

without having to do hours of research each day 

trying to figure it out on your own.

 

PROJECT MANAGEMENT CAREER LAUNCH 

shows you exactly how to do this.

 

In this course you’ll get EVERYTHING you need to get that dream project management job

you deserve.

 

You’ll get step-by-step guidance and instructions for 

what to do each step of the way

to get that perfect project management job…

 

even if you don’t have a fancy project management degree or 

special certifications.

 

How do I know these tactics work?

 

I know because these are the VERY TACTICS I’ve used to get MULTIPLE Project Management jobs. 

NOT ONLY THAT. 

I eventually moved into management – and was responsible for hiring Project Managers 

So I know first-hand what hiring managers are looking for…

BECAUSE I WAS THE ONE DOING THE HIRING.

 

 

 

I'm Leigh Espy, project management and leadership coach. For over 20 years I’ve had an amazing project management career as both a project manager and hiring manager. 

 

And through my career I’ve coached hundreds of project managers and job seekers. 

 

I know the interview questions the hiring managers are asking, what the motivations are behind those questions, and what they’re looking for in a candidate. 

And if you know the secrets to grab their attention and give them what they’re looking for, you’ll know how to stand out against other candidates.  

 

Unfortunately, many people I talk to struggle with getting a project management job…

When I ask people what they’ve tried so far to get a job in a project management career they tell me what’s not working for them:

  • They’ve seen job postings and don’t apply because they don't believe they can get the job. 
    • They take themselves out of the competition before even trying.  

  • They’ve sent out tons of resumes and only gotten silence in return. 

    • This approach rarely works because your resume gets lost in the flood of other resumes.  

  • If they do get an interview, they’re not sure how to use the right language.
    • This damages their credibility after coming so far in the hiring processes. 

But because I’ve been successfully using techniques to get interviews and get hired 

and have firsthand knowledge of how to successfully get into a great project management career…

I want to show you how to do it.

 


That’s why I created 

PROJECT MANAGEMENT CAREER LAUNCH

 

The course that gives you the step-by-step guidance on how to land a job in an amazing project management career path. 

 

I’ll show you the most effective ways to go about improving your resume, finding jobs, and walking into your interviews confident and prepared. 

And these are skills you’ll be able to use any time you’re ready to make your next career move.


What you’ll learn:

  • Project managers’ key roles and responsibilities so you start your job search with a clear understanding, ready to talk like the pros. 
  • How to Identify your key strengths and experience so you can easily show the value you’ll bring to the job.
  • How to use project management language so you’re seen as a great candidate – no matter what your job title was before.
  • How to find the hidden job market so you know about jobs that aren’t even posted.
  • How to naturally and easily network and connect with others to learn about companies, jobs, and even get referrals to set you ahead of other candidates.
  • Write a resume that stands out and speaks the exact language the hiring manager wishes everyone would use.
  • Craft an amazing cover letter that lets your personality shine through and captures the attention of the hiring manager.
  • Walk into an interview prepared and confident – even if you’ve always doubted yourself – ready to prove you’re the right person for the job.
  • How to own the interview, so hiring managers see you as a great fit for the role.
  • What questions to ask to know if the position is right for you – and signal to the hiring manager you’re a top-notch candidate!

 

And once you’ve been offered the job…

 

You’ll have an amazing project management job that not only impresses your friends and family…

You’ll finally have a job that let’s you reach your full potential and earn what you’re worth.

TESTIMONIALS

 

Even though I've been a project manager for several years, I knew this course would be a valuable investment in my career. After working at my current job for several years, I needed to brush up on my job search and interviewing skills. 

 

The course helped in areas I was deficient, like networking, branding, and explaining how work I've done over the past few years is a great fit for what a hiring manager is looking for in a candidate. The course showed me how to do that. I used all this information for a phone interview on Monday and got a call back for a face-to-face interview right away.

 

The templates and examples on how to answer tricky questions are especially helpful, and I'm looking forward to applying it all in my follow-up interview!

I highly recommend this course to anyone who considers him/herself a potential project manager! This course will help you better understand project management roles and opportunities - as well as how to network, prepare your resume, and stand out for a project management role. 

 

The course is so accessible and well organize that I immediately felt I had all of the support I needed to prepare for an upcoming interview for a position in project management. Although completely new to project management, I knew that I had several transferrable skills that would make me great at it; this course filled gaps in my knowledge and facilitated reflection vital to understanding my strengths and weaknesses. As a result, I was ready to put my best foot forward when interviewing!

Before I met Leigh…I was lost in my search for employment, especially because my resume was all over the place and I struggled to put it into perspective.

Leigh has completely changed how I look at my career, she helped me with my resume which has been my life long struggle. She provided me with resources that helped me understand project management and my strengths and weaknesses in it.

I would recommend this program in a heartbeat….strategies to use in my search for jobs, resume building, networking etc.

I thought I needed the Project Management Certificate in order for me to get a job within that field so I was stressing a lot in finding a job.  Leigh clarified my path and now I know what I need to do to find a job in the field that I want. She made me realize that I had the experience I need to look for the job I want and motivated me just when I was about to give up.
