Project managers are tasked with overseeing specific projects within an organization or company. Their duties may include planning the project as well as managing cost to ensure that it fits within the proposed budget. They carry out risk assessment and may be involved in recruitment. They are also responsible for ensuring that all the major aspects of the projects proceed within the planned timeline. Project managers help resolve conflicts and keep team members motivated during the course of the project. Most managers often have to make hard day-to-day decisions on things that may affect the team or scope of the project. They work an average of 40 hours a week, often dealing with phone calls, emails and visits. For large projects spread across multiple locations, they may be required to travel for meetings.
Project managers work in almost any field, ranging from construction and commerce to IT and engineering. Depending on the size of the company and scope of work, they may work with a single team or with multiple departments or sub-contractors. Most employers require that project managers have several years of experience leading or overseeing projects in order to be considered for the job. Some of the other core requirements for this position include having good leadership and analytical skills. Good communication skills are also considered an important asset.
