I would suggest you get your PMP Certification.

You can also just search for PMP.

    A course and/or a certification is many times not 'enough'  to get a job.  Experience plays a very important role, especially in a management position.

    You might want consider offering to help managing projects as a volunteer at some non-profit, or something similar.  Anything that can help you get some project management experience would be good.

    Experience is by far the best. PMP certification is the most well-known. This certification isn't bad either:

    Best of luck!
