Why would i need this?

Hey I just started my road to PMP and I am basically a very new beginner.  I am pretty much thinking this is not for me.  I am interested in project management but I need 2,500 hours of project management to get this certification?  I thought this certification was going to help me get to a place where I could get 2,500 hours of work in project management?

 

Maybe I am confused but I'm looking for something that will give me the training and certification employers want to see on a resume.  Am I in the wrong place?  Should I look into other project management products?

 

I just am not sure what to do after going over the requirements for the certification.  I don't want this time I spent studying to be just another book I read on the shelf of stuff I thought was cool.  I want it to work for me. 

 

Point me in the right direction?

 

Thanks.

 Try to do CAPM or take some trainings on Project managmenet and check with your organization if you will get a break to play the role of PM in some projects.
