Valentin Ifrim is one of the mentors with whom you are going to learn Project Management. He works in the IT field for over 10 years and the first thing he wants to do is to explain about what is the Project Management course at Wantsome:
“This course is about the knowledge and the ability to manage a project. Here our students will learn the basics of project management and will understand fundamental concepts. Subsequently, this knowledge can be enhanced with specific approaches to project management.”
Now that you know what the course is about, you have to be sure that you want to learn Project Management with Valentin for 3 months. Well, it depends on your expectations. Valentin says that you should expect to:
- Master basic concepts generally valid in project management;
- Analyze clarifying case studies;
- Build a personal project;
- Work on an individual case study.
We hope that you start getting the grasp of the fact that this course is only the first step in project management. You will know what to study later and will be able to choose a specific path in further improvement based on the knowledge you gather here.
Now let’s get to the practical part. What jobs can you apply for after you learn Project Management at Wantsome? Valentin says that:
“All areas of activity that can be organized in the form of projects can constitute opportunities to be considered. However, expectations must be reported at the level of knowledge and experience gained in project management.“
Would you like to get one of those IT and not only jobs? You should also know some things about this technical field. First of all, out mentor considers it to be:
“An effervescent, young industry with spectacular growth. Great for all those interested, with or without experience in this field of activity.”
However, it is not just for anybody. We asked Valentin for some piece of advice. He said that he doesn’t usually give advice, but there are some important questions you have to ask yourself before entering the large world of IT:
- What do I want to do?
- What am I able to do in this field?
- How much time and effort am I ready to invest into learning and getting better?
- How can I gain knowledge and experience in the most efficient way?
Once you find the answers to these questions, you are ready to go. If the source you want to gain knowledge is Wantsome, even better. Here we have the most important thing in a successful initiative: the people. They are extremely experienced and ready to share everything they’ve got with our students.
Different people come to us for different reasons. For example, that’s why Valentin joined our dream team:
“I appreciate all the alternative education initiatives that can really support various fields of activity, such as IT & C. Wantsome is such an "informal teacher" that helps to develop this young and high-performing field of activity: Romanian IT & C.”
Do you want one more important reason to learn Project Management with us? Well, one of the most important reasons is Valentin. The mentor is the key to a fantastic course which is able to open a lot of doors for you.
For Valentin to motivate you, you have to get to know him a little better. Besides his experience of over 10 years in IT, he says that he has worked in numerous Romanian and international firms on the part of outsourcing. Now he collaborates, as a project manager, with a consulting company from Bucharest. He is also working for a European telecommunications company.
Don’t wait for the faith to magically show you that it is time for change for you too. Time flies and the advice Valentin would give his younger self is really important:
“Don't wait too long to do what you really love doing. Just act!”
Besides work, Valentin loves learning constantly and occasionally watching movies and reading. He says that if it wasn’t for his love for IT thought project management, he thinks he would make a great teacher. We think so too, that’s why we plan on helping you learn Project Management together.
