Regardless of field or industry, project managers are in high-demand, which means higher salaries. The Project Management Institute, a global profession-governing body, predicts that by 2027, employers will need 87.7 million individuals working in project management-oriented roles.
Of the 3 billion workers in the global workforce, only 51 million self-identify as a project manager, and only about 800 thousand of them hold a PMP® credential. When you translate your military leadership experience into its commerical form of project management, and you validate it with a premiere project management credential, you become the top 1%!
Individuals with experience visioning end-states and metrics of success, making and resourcing plans to achieve success, leading and coaching teams to carry out those plans, and communicating results to myriad of stakeholders in the process have project management experience, skills, and talents. That’s any military leader!
When you convey your military leadership in the terms and concepts of project management, civilian hiring managers, recruiters, and human resource professionals instantly recognize it; and value it! They see and hear a seasoned, familiar project manager.
