In this session we have been invited by the British Computer Society’s Project Management Specialist Interest Group to present on Getting into Project Management.

Here’s the overview:

Project management as a career of choice has never been more popular. Increasingly organisations of all kinds look to projects to either help improve operations, providing more to their customers, or making real transformational change to the public and the wider society.

Maybe it’s the diversity of opportunity in project management that makes it attractive as a career choice, or the fact that they tend to be well-paid. Perhaps it is the challenge or working in a role with such accountability and responsibility or that sense of accomplishment with a result or outcome achieved.

Whatever drives people to consider project management as a career, one of the early hurdles they face is how to get into a project management role.

In this session we take a look at a number of different routes into project management and share practical tips on how you can start planning your way into one of the most exciting careers available today.

We will cover:

  • The different types of positions available for those new to project management
  • Understanding which transferable skills are really needed in project management today
  • The development areas you need to be thinking about and closing skills gaps
  • What you can be doing to find that first role.

You will also have the opportunity to ask your own questions too.

You will leave the session bursting with ideas and some practical steps you could be taking to make working in project management become a reality.

 

It’s a free webinar and you can register via the link to the BCS website.
