What do you wish you knew about your job when you first started out?
Project Manager, Construction in Washington:
"Find A Mentor."
Construction PM means managing all construction disciplines. When you start your career you probably want to dive into your particular area of interest. However job opportunities might have you start from a different place. A Mentor is like a life adviser who has long term vision which you have yet to acquire. This will save you from making short term decisions (like jumping jobs for an extra few $/hr) and sacrifice long term benefits.
