I will be retiring from the military in the year 2020. I have been a military pilot most of my entire career, and due to extensive TDY's and family sacrifice, I will not be pursuing a pilot job in civilian life.
I have a BA and MBA, from public, state universities. I also hold a Top Secret Clearance and Speak Spanish/English both fluently (if it matters). I have no problem traveling one week out of each month to off-site customer locations but the days of two, three weeks, and even months, on the road just will not work for my family anymore. I would like to pursue an high-growth career industry that is challenging and rewarding.
Some questions if someone can assist:
Can my background and skills be "transferred over" into the PMP realm ?
What does career growth look like in the year 2020. I understand that is five years away but I want to get started now with educating myself about the profession.
Also, what is "starting salary" and what kind of salary can be expected say at Year-3 as a PMP.
Are most PMP's independent consultants or do they work as salaried employees at a company/organization ?
Is there any particular sector or industry that PMP work is more common at than others ? Aka more common in healthcare and less common in legal field ?
Thank you for your time and information !
