December 2020: CPSM

Position yourself as a marketing/BD leader within the A/E/C by earning professional credentials through the Certified Professional Services Marketer (CPSM) program. A CPSM is recognized as an individual who has met a rigorous standard of experience and expertise in marketing professional services and has demonstrated their knowledge of the practice and related disciplines through a thorough examination of marketing competency. This voluntary credential is serves as a mark of distinction, raising standing among employers, peers, and the public. 

“Becoming a CPSM not only furthered my career, but also my confidence as the lone marketer in a regional office of a large company. I was the first person in my firm to gain those four little letters after my name, and received a surprising amount of recognition for my efforts. I have since had the opportunity to not only share all my new knowledge with my peers, but also have the reach to speak with upper management about new ideas and initiatives. I don’t think I would have the influence I have today if I hadn’t decided to take that leap and study for the CPSM Exam. It’s a big commitment, but well worth the time and energy! I feel like I finally know how to be a successful and impactful marketer.”
