Testing for Dollars

Yesterday, I completed the 2nd of a series tests necessary to obtain a professional designation relevant to my field. If you work for a large company, make sure you check your HR website for information on professional designation/testing. In addition to paying for the course materials and/or the class, many companies will pay a bonus for completion of each test and a bonus for completion of the designation.

In addition to making you more marketable with your current employer, a professional designation can open doors to networking opportunities outside your company should you need (or have) to make a change.
