Project Manager, (Unspecified Type / General) Advice

What do you wish you knew about your job when you first started out?

Project Manager, (Unspecified Type / General) in Omaha:
"Find value and charge for it."
My advice is to at first just get your foot in the door. The first year or so just really dedicate yourself to fitting in and helping where needed while keeping an eye out for something you might be more interested in. Once you find that something, capitalize on it. The goal is to make yourself as valuable as possible. For me it was using my expert Excel knowledge to help automate other people's jobs. Lastly, after about a year or two when you are confident in your abilities and value to the company make sure you are being paid appropriately. I waited about a year to long to ask for a raise which I ended up getting (over and beyond what I could've imagined). I am very thankful now but you should know that companies aren't gonna give you a big raise if they don't have to. I'm not an outgoing person so it wasn't easy but obviously it makes a huge difference.

Project Manager, (Unspecified Type / General) in Seattle:
"It's not what you think it is..."
Don't think your degree will put you in a position to know and understand what the project superintendents know and understand - their years of experience and trial/error work has led them to where they are. Lean on them for support and advice.

Project Manager, (Unspecified Type / General) in Seattle:
Being a project manager is like throwing parties for people who don't want them and asking them to pitch in to help plan the party.

Project Manager, (Unspecified Type / General) in Springfield:
"Unclear Expectations lead to bigger problems!"
You should make sure your company knows exactly what they're looking for when they're hiring, and that they have set clear expectations for the position prior to even interviewing let alone hiring someone. If these are unclear you may end up doing a lot more than anticipated. It can also lead to other frustrations, unnecessary stress, and a lot of hard work might go unpaid in the sense that you are giving more than they're giving!

Project Manager, (Unspecified Type / General) in Springfield:
"Get More."
Get a degree in a certain field of Project Management or a Project Manager Professionals Certification.
