Career Opportunities

Project managers are needed in a wide variety of industries, but especially within healthcare, IT, engineering, construction and manufacturing. In its most recent analysis of the job outlook for project managers, Project Management Job Growth and Talent Gap 2017–2027, PMI projects that U.S. job openings in project management will grow by 2.1 million over the 2017-2027 period.1

Other sources also indicate rapid growth for project managers. For example, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics projects 8% growth for construction managers over the 2019-2029 period—a rate of growth that is twice as fast as the 4% rise in overall job openings during the same period.2
