FAQ
  What is this site about?

This site is about giving everyone an amazing opportunity to learn project management from the experts. You can find your mentor here, look for internships or even follow (shadow) a project manager for a day to see what a life of project manager is before you change your career or decide to take a project management course in school and spend thousands doing it.


I am a Project Manager, now what do I do?

Thank you for visiting the site. You can help the future project manager's by helping them understand the profession. If you have few minutes to spare, please join us by clicking here .

You can find us at @Soma_b and the SIPM Contact Us.

I want to become a Project Manager, how will this help me?

Welcome to the world of management! You can sign up free as a “newbie” and get access to the “experts” (project managers) through the site. Once you sign up, you instantly get access to the project managers and can search them by location, domain and interest (mentoring, offering internship or allow shadowing for a day). It’s a step towards the real experience and seeing it first hand than just reading books.


Why should I register to your site?

Thank you for your interest and visiting the site. To use the services of the website, you have to register either as an “expert” or a “newbie”. If you have any questions, please contact us here


Who is an expert?

If you are a Project Manager and have been one for at least 3 years, and willing to take some time out to help a newbie and share your expertise- you are eligible and we thank you for taking interest.


Am I eligible as a “newbie”? I am 35.

If you are new to project management or want to know more about the profession, you can be a “newbie”. You can be a recent graduate or someone thinking of changing a career or taking the next step. We welcome you to take the first steps with us and see the real world of project management.


How can I find my mentor here?

If you know what you are looking for, it is easy and the site speaks for itself. You can find someone from the same domain (IT, media, construction etc) and after interacting with couple of “experts”, decide who understands you and your goal better. Take the conversation outside SIPM or do it through SIPM.


Who are you?

A newbie who embarked on the journey to become a Project manager and found a passion that she wanted to share with all. Thank you for your interest. You can find me at @Soma_b and the SIPM blog.


Can we contact you directly instead of going through the “contact us” form?

Yes, please send a message through twitter.


How can I advertise in your site?

Thank you for your interest. The site is free, so to support the website we advertise products/services related to Project Management only. If you are interested, please contact us here.


My mentor is not communicating with me any more. What do I do?

Sorry to hear that. Unfortunately the site does not take the responsibility to find you the mentor or investigate reasons of why the communication has stopped. We provide you with the opportunity and the information to find one. So, if your mentor has stopped communicating, he/she might be busy. So please wait for a few more weeks and if you still don’t hear back move on and find a new mentor.
