Image of the Project Management Profession - Study Results

While doing this, I've read my LinkedIn resume and couldn't help notice how boring it is. Even though I did my best to include the biggest highlights of my career, it doesn't seem able to truly put them into the spotlight and make me stand-out from a crowd of project managers. Nor does it truly reflect my personality and project management style.
