Vickie Pederson of Citizen Watch America took a temp position with an incentive rep 12 years ago, which lead to a full time position that solidified her career in incentives. She heard about the IP designation through IMRA, and made the decision to pursue it in order to further her commitment to the industry. Through the course and exam, Vickie learned about more aspects of the industry and best practices she was not previously aware of, which she says will help her as she looks to expand her circle within the incentive industry. For anyone thinking about getting their IP designation, Vickie says it is not the kind of test you can just wing, so be prepared to take notes and study, but it's a great way to show your commitment to the industry!
