Project managers plan around the restricted resources of their organization to successfully complete project-based work of varying size and scope. By recognizing the scarcity of resources, they strategically direct the efforts of engineers, technicians, designers, fabricators, and more, in interdepartmental initiatives to complete projects on time and within a budget.
Project Managers are needed in numerous industries which include, but are not limited to, healthcare, information technology, automation, environmental management, financial services, manufacturing, retail, government, and non-profit organizations.
Job openings for this field are expected to increase annually by 1.2 million through 2016. This job growth is expected in both private and public industry in a managerial-type setting.
