Following on from the success and good feedback of last year’s PMI Career week, we are delighted to announce the 2019 PMI Career Night on Thursday 12th September.
There’ s been a lot of change in the Project Management arena over the last year. The PMI Career night promises a market overview so attendees can best position themselves for future opportunities.
