Guiding a group to success is a sizable task that takes skill, organization, communication, respect, and expertise. Before you can expect others to follow your lead, consider upskilling to become a better project manager.
Project management is a fruitful career with a growing job market. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the average pay for project management specialists in 2021 was $94,500 and the top 10% earned over $159,140. In the next decade, it is expected that there will be a 7% increase in the number of job opportunities in this field.
Whether you are a professional managing projects, a manager who wants to fine-tune your project management skills, a lifelong learner that is curious about the latest project management trends, or looking to take the Project Management Institute Project Management Professional exam, sharpening your skills in this field can help you advance your career and achieve your goals.
Setting your sights on upskilling your expertise is valuable, especially in today’s climate. The World Economic Forum’s Future of Jobs Report states that the growing technology demands may cause half of all employees to need reskilling by 2025.
In addition, the pandemic has created a change in the workforce that may require you to consider upskilling. According to Forbes, work pattern shifts, customer behavior change, recession, and loss of jobs are just a few of the effects that you should account for.
