How to Own Your Project Management Career Project Management Career Questions frequent my inbox, and I often reply with comments. They are my favorite! The question I got from Biswa was a great one: I recently joined a company as a Project Coordinator that provides IT Services to the government. I have completed my MBA and have a BCA. Would this be the right path for me? Please help me to understand the career growth. Biswa is asking if he made the right career choice by becoming a project coordinator. I don’t know. I love helping project managers achieve their career goals but I don’t know the answer. ?Why? It will depend on many factors. What experience do you have? What is the role of project coordinator specifically and in relation to your organization? What are your career goals? I don’t have enough information to assist, but I can help anyone do this. I have created an entire online course to assist you in this process. Take it on Your Own If you don’t get anything else from this blog post then at least this. You are your best advocate and best placed to develop and nurture your career. Yes, there are many tools and techniques that you can use, and I have tried my best to make them all available in a structured plan. However, the actual execution is entirely up to you.

  • You can get lots of ideas from me about how to gain experience in managing projects. But the implementation is up to your.
  • You can use my worksheets to help you plan your career, determine your current situation and set goals.
  • While I can help you network effectively, it is up to you to get out there and talk to people.
  • While I can help you target companies rather than waiting for job postings to come in, only you can do the research on your own for your career.

I see a pattern emerging. It’s up to YOU. ?Own it! Your Plan of Attack.
