Bored at work? Many would envy you for it, but you're probably not having the best time. So don't sit there idle twiddling your thumbs - get a bit creative and take the chance to learn something new or develop an existing skill.
Here are 10 suggestions that will cure you of your boredom but also help you grow both personally and professionally.
In a highly globalised and inter-connected world, progressing in your career and landing that dream job may increasingly require you to relocate to a different city or country.
The question is: do you have the qualifications that will help you stand out from the crowd in the eyes of international recruiters?
If you already have a PRINCE2® qualification and practical experience in project management, you may well think this is enough to last you for your whole career.
But the truth is that no project management approach is perfect, and exploring new methodologies can bring you significant benefits. With many overlapping areas, stepping into the APMP arena can thus be a highly rewarding and relatively pain-free process.

The truth is that there is no one-size-fits all answer. We explore the advantages of each qualification and explain the factors you need to consider in order to make the best choice.
There will be few managers out there who haven't heard of the ILM and CMI - they both enjoy reputations that have made them well-known and well-respected across the globe.
So which one has the qualification that's right for you and your career goals and dreams? Choosing won't be easy, but this article presents some key facts about both bodies that may help you decide.

Itching to do something new? Rest assured that you are not alone: according to recent research, up to 75% of UK employees applied for a new job in 2014.
It can be a daunting prospect, but as long as you are prepared for the leap, there is no reason why you shouldn't succeed.
