Project Management Career Homework- Targeting Organizations As most of you know, I teach people how to research and find the right organizations to work for. Then, they can focus on specific jobs. Are you actually doing it? Because it is so contrary to the traditional approach to job searching, I would bet no. My Challenge To You If you are serious about project management and are willing to accept my challenge, I have a challenge for you. Start right now and spend 10 minutes researching Google and LinkedIn to find some organizations that you might be interested in. Look at the job titles (not necessarily advertised jobs, but actual positions). Do you see a rise in project management titles? ?For example,

  • Project Manager I
  • Project Manager II
  • Project Manager III
  • Project Manager IV


  • Junior Project Manager
  • Project Manager
  • Senior Project Manager
  • Principal?Project Manager

What about specialization? You could, for example,

  • Business Analyst
  • IT Infrastructure Project Manager
  • Project Controller
  • Cloud Computing Project Manager
  • Project Scheduler
  • Web Services Development Project Manager

Remember that not everyone uses “Project manager” as a sacred title. Many roles in project management are known by different names. There are many routes to managing projects. Your background and your organizational structure are important. Your Homework Please leave a comment below.
