Mission:

To provide networking and job search help to out-of-work members of the PMI New Hampshire Chapter.

Value:

The unique advantage of netPM over other networking groups is that it focuses on Project Managers helping other Project Managers. Asking non-Project Managers to review a Project Manager’s resume, for example, rarely provides a useful critique. Since Project Managers are the best networking resources for other Project Managers, netPM provides a structure for strong support. In addition, it offers topics, ideas, exercises and presenters that will be specifically helpful to job-seeking chapter members. netPM is a valuable benefit provided at no additional cost for the members of the PMI New Hampshire
