Project Manager Jobs

Project Manager Overview

A project manager is responsible for overseeing the completion of a project, and they will typically be involved with every step of the process from hiring to construction. Project managers can work in any number of fields, and their projects can range from developing a new gated community to releasing a new type of music player device. However, the overwhelming majority of project managers are involved with construction, and their projects tend to be commercial in nature. Just a sample of the average project manager tasks could include hiring new employees, getting approval from the country for construction to begin, creating a timeline for the project and acting as a liaison between staff, managers, suppliers and the community.

Project Manager Educational Requirements

It is incredibly rare to secure a position as a project manager without a bachelor's degree. While there are some entry-level positions accepting applicants with just a two-year associate degree, those are generally the exception to the rule. The most successful project managers will major in subjects like construction science, project management, construction engineering or building science in order to sufficiently prepare for their careers. It may also be beneficial for project managers to earn certifications such as the Certified Construction Manager designation from the Construction Management Association of America or the Certified Professional Constructor designation from the American Institute of Constructors.

Project Manager Job Market

Statistics predict that between 2012 and 2022, the job market for project managers in the United States will grow by an impressive 16 percent, which is above average for careers in the country. This increase will translate to more than 80,000 additional project managers jobs over the next decade as well as countless similar positions like that of project administrator, project assurance specialist and release manager.

Project Manager Salary

In 2012, the average median salary for a project manager was $82,790. The highest salaries in the industry tend to go to project managers who are employed in civil engineering firms while the lowest salaries tend to be for specialty trade contractors or nonprofit project managers.
