In a series of posts, we’ve been exploring topics related to the PMP certification.
You may be thinking: Let’s talk about salary and earning potential. Why should I endure the pain & suffering of the notorious PMP Exam? I want to see the bottom line. Show me the money!
That’s a valid request. In the following, we’ll explore the PMP earning potential. And, I’ll hit you with 3 big statistics to build a case. First and foremost, show me the money.
The stats are obvious: if you earn the PMP certification, you’ll likely be making more money.
Wow – look at that gap! Do you want a bump in pay? (I thought so.) Don’t put it off –earn the PMP certification!
More money sounds nice, but what if the economy slows down? What steps can I take to keep my job? How do I remain valuable?
Want job security? Add the PMP credential to your business card.
Ok, I get it…job security is nice. But, does the world really need more project managers? Is the door closing on this opportunity?
In January 2013, Mark Langley was addressing over 150 volunteers at a PMI Leadership Institute planning meeting. Mr. Langley pointed to research and forecasts that anticipate continued demand for our field well into the future.

The salary statistics I’ve quoted above are from page 269 of the Project Management Salary Survey – Eighth Edition – which was conducted in 2013. The Project Management Institute (PMI) works with third party consulting agencies to carry out this survey of over 36,000 project management practitioners across the globe. The study results in meaningful compensation data for 33 countries. If you are a member of PMI, you can access the full study for free. To download your copy, start here.
