What is a Project Manager?
We’re the ones who make sure that projects are on track. When problems come up around timing or budget, we coordinate with and support others to make sure we can reach our goal. We’re organized, detail-oriented, and we get things done.
“My majors in school were around marketing and management, and I found the best way to incorporate both aspects was within this role, and in this industry.”
