Is Project Management the Career Choice For Me?

In a slowly recovering economy, students of all ages and across the globe are wrestling over career paths, hoping to make the most of a relatively low number of employment opportunities. With the requirements to enter most companies growing each year, the staff at Medhira have noticed that within the varied industries, there is a skill set which can make a young person into a “star” employee. So, what is this set? Understanding and using strong project management skills.

Project managers are needed in every industry and in almost every function. And don’t let the word “project” make you think you must want to manage mega-budget projects across multiple time zones.  A project can be as simple as a 1-day event, a webcast, or redecorating your boss’ office. Good project managers have essential skills that will be necessary for life, no matter what you do. They know how to ask the right questions to be prepared. Those skills include: meeting management, communication strategies, time management, quality management, and team management. Whether you plan to own your own company in 5 years, work with your best friend to launch the next Groupon or Spotify, or hope to go up the ranks of an established firm – project management skills will set you up for the life of your career!

Is project management for you?

As you may know, Medhira specializes in project management training and consulting. For those considering project management, we’ll be hosting an evening lecture on January 11 in Midtown Mumbai, with an open discussion and Q&A.
