So back in June I wrote the CMA Entrance Exam. I was thinking about bettering my career given all the recession and no jobs.
Now I have been out of school since 2003, so to suddenly get back into it was tough to say the least. I started the prep course 2 months before the Exam itself and considered postponing the exam a few times because I didn't think I was ready.
My prep class instructor pushed me and told me to write the exam. So June 16, 2009 came and I was at Exhibition Place in downtown Toronto writing the exam.
I came out of the Exam thinking discouraged and thinking about what my study strategy is going to be when I am forced to write the exam again in October. The marking process took 6 weeks and they were 6 LONG weeks.
So I woke up to an email from my instructor saying the marks were now posted. I must say, I was very nervous while checking the marks but was pleasantly surprised to see a "Pass - Congratulations" listed.
The whole experience is really nerve racking. Just wanting to do well, while keeping your cool. Just a tough experience.
Now I'm on my way to starting the Strategic Leadership Program in Fall. My main quest however, is finding a job now. So if you have any leads, send them my way!
Until next time...
