Did you catch the recent article in SM magazine, by Hayley Addison? Because I resonated so much with the things mentioned in the article, I thought it would be great to share with you if you haven’t already caught it?
It was a discussion on MCIPS! These are the pointers I got that stuck with me and my mission, maybe they will stick with you too so keep reading…
“MCIPS brings credibility to your career – and confidence to employers” that’s exactly what most if not all of us CIPS students are hoping for.
“…the latest CIPS salary survey reveals that those with MCIPS earn more.” ok I think this really matters which economy you are referring to. I know for instance in Kenya this may not be necessarily true. I work in Kenya so I can speak on that one.
“You can achieve MCIPS by a number of routes. Completing the CIPS Professional Diploma is a big achievement, but it doesn’t mean you can automatically use MCIPS after your name. The MCIPS ‘professional licence’ requires you have at least three years’ experience in a position of responsibility in the profession and you have to apply formally to upgrade to MCIPS.” now I didn’t know this! did you?!
Hows your progress towards MCIPS?
