Preparing one’s AEM or CEM application packet can be a labor-intensive, detailed process, to say the least. Those candidates who have taken the opportunity to review the CEM Corner articles should fare well in their AEM or CEM pursuit. This article discusses a common list of do’s and don’ts in the AEM and CEM portfolio process. The list is not all-inclusive, though it is a list of common errors in assembling AEM/CEM portfolios.
In conclusion, remember to carefully read each of the requirements or rationale for each portion of the AEM and CEM application requirements.
