aspiring project managers

If you know project management is right for you, but you haven't been able to make the transition...

Most project managers didn't start out wanting to be project managers. Have you ever wondered: How did they make the jump?

You don't have formal project management experience 

You have a non-traditional background

You don't have the right project management soft skills

You lack confidence

These things may be true. But that doesn't mean you have to give up on your dreams. 

There may be another, less obvious reason you're struggling to make this transition:

Office employee
 Young Woman Contemplating

The job search game is rigged

The odds are not in your favor. First, you have to work a full-time job. On top of that, maybe you have a family or other time commitments. 

Job hunting alone can feel like a full-time job! You spend hours and hours scrolling through job postings, seeing the same old, stale postings again and again. When you see one you're excited about, you're either underqualified or there are 200+ applicants.


Then you find the one. You're qualified, it's cool and exciting, and it was just posted an hour ago! Well... now you have to tailor your resume to the job description. Maybe you even pull out all of the stops and write a cover letter. 

Finally, after hours of grueling work (which you probably did when you were supposed to be doing your actual job), you've put together your best attempt at proving that you're a "self-starter who excels in fast-paced environments" (um, okay...). You take the plunge, and you hit "submit...

And nothing. No response. No interview. No indication that your hard work even reached human eyes. 

Shouldn't it be easier to land a job you're passionate about?

Who made up these rules, anyway?
