Join us October 12, 2018, for the PMI Tulsa Chapter Meeting:
"The Future of PM Careers and Skills by Industry" PDU: Strategic/Business
We will be hosting a fascinating panel discussion on the topic of PM opportunities and skills required BY INDUSTRY in today’s job market. TEKSystems, in partnership with PMI Tulsa, has pulled together representatives from industries across Tulsa to share their thoughts on the future of PM demand.
According to PMI.org, the outlook for PM careers is better than it's been in years.
The global economy is surging—boosting job markets across sectors and continents. The global GDP growth projection of 3.7 percent for this year represents a slight uptick from 2017, according to the International Monetary Fund. Of course, project professionals know they're in a good spot: 22 million new project-oriented jobs will be created between 2017 and 2027, according to PMI's Project Management Job Growth and Talent Gap report.
But not all industries are on the same footing or looking for the same kinds of project talent. Healthcare organizations might demand different skills than a hirer at a telecom. And while more than half of CEOs plan to increase headcount, they're having trouble finding the right skills, according to PwC's 2017 CEO Survey. However, all sectors are looking to transform, which means there's a need for organizations to add innovative thinkers and talent that can help them increase their digital footprints.
