Two months?

You can begin to get something together about content management and
have not a lot to show . . .

. . . or, you can produce work and documents and get good references and
resume padding. That is, I like your plan to use the tools you have to
do work and deliver product. You don't have the experience or time to
get the larger, project-management research project done . . ..
