Melissa 1Rather than pursuing another master's degree, I felt earning the APR would give me the knowledge and resources that I needed to be more effective in my job. It would teach me how to write an effective communications plan, measurement practices and how to think strategically.

Of course, all my duties made studying hard and I didn't pass the test on the first time. But I felt like I came too far and too close to passing to give up and kept on until I achieved those three little letters.

Even if I took time off from studying and decided to pursue my APR at a later date, just what I learned in the process is priceless and I would do it all over again
