If you are contemplating a career in project management, it’s fair to ask yourself: “Where do project managers work?” In today’s post, we touch upon this often neglected aspect of project management.
Where Do Project Managers Work?
The place where a project manager works will depend on many factors, with the most important being the type of project at hand.
Remote Project Managers
In some cases, it’s not uncommon for project managers to work remotely. Some industries that are particularly suited for remote project management include:
- Financial services
- Insurance services
- Healthcare administration
A remote project manager performs all the duties of a project manager (for example, monitoring project progress or evaluating project performance) from home.
The pandemic has accelerated the adoption of remote work across all professions, and project management is no exception. So get ready to see an increase in the demand for remote project managers!
On-Site Project Managers
While remote project management seems bound to become commonplace, there are some industries where project managers need to work on-site on either a full- or part-time basis.
The construction industry is a typical example of a sector where project managers often work on-site.
Construction project managers usually work out of a field office at a construction site.
Keep in mind, though, that not all cases are cut and dry. Even in industries where remote project management is more feasible (such as software development or administration), project managers may be required to work on-site depending on the requirements of the specific project.
Regardless of where they work, project management remains in high demand as a profession.
According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, some of the industries with the highest levels of employment in project management specialists include:
- Computer systems design
- Architecture and engineering
- Technical consulting services
- Nonresidential building construction
- Management of companies
