As documented by Alexandria Redfield

I completed my B.A. in Mass Communications and Women’s studies at Southern Illinois University, Edwarsville in 2018. After working for three years as an executive assistant at ViacomCBS, I decided to switch my career to project management. Based on Simplilearn’s ratings, I decided that an intelligent first step was enrolling in their PMP® Certification Training Course. I found that I liked Simplilearn’s comprehensive curriculum, and the course helped me gain a better understanding of project management. Simplilearn structures its course so students can pass the certification exam on the first try.

A Rewarding Career Choice

After completing my training with Simplilearn and earning my PMP certification, I am now a client services manager at Dentsu X, a branding and marketing agency near Chicago. My responsibilities involve managing different projects and streamlining client deliverables across multiple internal teams. In addition, I serve as a liaison between media teams and the legal department to secure state licenses.

I’m also earning 40 percent more than I was in my previous role.  

A Varied Career Background

In my professional journey, I have worked in various media industries in the past few years in different professional roles. I love music and work as a DJ part-time. In addition, I have a keen interest in interior design — and learning!
