Tips on using this forum..

(1) Explain your problem, don't simply post "This isn't working". What were you doing when you faced the problem? What have you tried to resolve - did you look for a solution using "Search" ? Has it happened just once or several times?

(2) It's also good to get feedback when a solution is found, return to the original post to explain how it was resolved so that more people can also use the results.

Having completed the P3e - Primavera course with Milestone, I am now looking for work as a junior Planner.
Being new in the industry, I’m willing to give two weeks of my time for free to any company that would be interested in giving me some valuable work experience.

Any feedback would be grateful.

Kind regards

Martyn Payge

Dear Martyn,

Now a days in a construction industry there are lot of apportunities in various fields.

first decide in which stream you would like to work ie. building construction, infra projects, heavy civil engineering, design related planning.

if you have got any previous exp in any of the field you can utilise your practical exp with the help of P3 which u have learnt.

After all planning is nothing but utilising the past experiance for the betterment and accuracy for the next project.
cheers,
abhijit

for me, there’s nothing better than actual practice, so practise, practise, practise!

Hi There

"...I’m willing to give two weeks of my time for free to any company...."

Sounds interesting?

Hate to pop your bubble, but running a program does not make you a planner.
You must know the basics of planning prior to applying planning to a program.

When you get to the point you can take a pen and paper and map out a plan and logic path and it is real, then you should think about a job as a planner.

Try it.
Example you want to build a building, what must take place first and all successors before you start vertical erection.
