There are a lot of tools and ways to manage a project, I find that managing the conversation to be the most effective; requests and promises. Be great with all involved, no matter the breakdown or upset.

Mostly coordination, communication and paperwork (digital). Technical knowledge is helpful, but the advancement of technical knowledge after getting into project management is theory and not gained through practical experience.

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.

"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:
