Job Description: Project managers are among some of the most flexible mid-level managers in the workforce. They are managers, yes, but unlike a store manager or a general manager, they manage closed-ended projects with specific teams. Once that project is complete, they often move to the next project managing a new team. This makes it the perfect job for someone who just can’t bear doing the same mundane tasks day in and day out.
Project managers have huge responsibilities with each project, including planning, executing and closing every project, managing the teams associated with the project, and managing expectations.
Education and Salary: According to the Corporate Education Group, you can launch a career in project management by first getting your Project Management Professional certification and networking with senior managers in your industry.
The median base salary for the role is $75,000.
