Chapter Give Back: Branding and Interviewing

Today’s Job search challenges facing project managers

  1. Technology, covid and short attention spans mean old beliefs are woefully inadequate for job search today
  2. There has been an overlooked pivot: It isn’t just about finding a job; it’s about being found for jobs.
  3. Project managers are often viewed as interchangeable, making it essential to be able to differentiate yourself. You have two options in your search: stand out or fade out.
