WE are looking to hire a technical person who should be doing project management, managing/releasing builds and developing tools to integrate with code. What should I call this person..technical writer? release engineer? or technical project manager?
I am planning on taking a Civil Engineering Technologist: Construction Management course in the fall and I also have a Bachelors degree in Business (major in HR with project management electives) and I am wondering if anyone knows how hard (or long) it would be (take) to work up from a CET to a Project Manager?
I am a recent graduate with a bachelors in business and technology management. I have been looking for work for the past few months as a business analyst, assistant project manager and a few others. I have been unsuccessful although I think I have a great resume, lots of experience and a good education.
The only jobs that I was able to find were with sales. However, with sales, I feel that my education is worthless. I do not see myself as a salesman.
My question is, what kind of positions should I be looking?
I have been working as a software developer (now as technical lead from last 1 years) from last 10+ years. In these 10 years I gained some experience doing project management, new hires, resource management, and technology decisions but nothing "formal" or something that my position title would reflect.
I want to make my next move and try for a Development Manager or Project Manager.
How should I go about it? Would some sort of certification help me to increase my chances?
I am talking to two companies on the following two job roles:
A Project Manager position where I just have to manage software projects. No actual software development is needed.
A Software Architect position where I would have to create high level design of the project and may be implement some parts of it or guide other developers.
Assuming my interest is same for both the jobs.
Which one would be a smarter career move?
What about money and further career development?
I would like to know how the system of providing references work. I'm working on a project where the project manager is not technically competent or literate. He can sure assess my character. When I'm applying for a technical position how will I know if the project manager is judging my technical capability correctly or not? I know that I'm a good programmer, but what if I'm project manager does not like my attitude. Then how can I rely on his references for future jobs?
I hate them! Not only do they rule my life and make my job a misery, I find them almost impossible to read (especially for big projects), usually inaccurate or lacking detail, and the only people that care about them are project managers that don't seem to understand or care about how work sometimes cannot be quantified in exact units.
Do I have to swallow my pride and just deal with them, or should I continue battling with them and instead manage my work by rewriting them into lists of tasks like I currently do?
I have done B.E computer engg, i had some drops and my academic results are below average,
i have also done a course in Java and CCNA but dint got a job in IT or networking company,
finally ended up starting as a sales and service engineer in a small 16 year old sales and service company
having online and offine Corrosion Monitoring products, in 2 months
on my performance got promoted to Project Coordinator as only 7-8 ppl work in the company so you can imagine,
right now i have 6 months of experience and i want to stick to the same for more 7-8 months
and get atleast 1 year of exp as a project coordinator before i leave this job
i dont see better future and carrier growth in this company as its a presales and service providing company
i am side by side developing skills on Microsoft Porjects
uptill now i have searched some options that i can try out as i can list
PMP-which i cant do as it is for Project Managers having more than 3years of exp
MBA is a good option but then will it help!!!!
doing a software or software security courses and starting off again as a fresher
i dont want my 1 year as project coordinator to be counted as waste
as the experience wont be counted in IT field,
So m very confused about what should i do next to get myself back on track i.e in IT
or may be in some other better company/organization having technical domain and a good carrier growth for me
I am starting to do Computer or IT courses and wanted to know which section do I need to pick to work in area of Project manager?
Someone told me they landed a job at Microsoft making about $25 an hour starting out. Fishy thing is, this person can barely connect to their printer and has literally no technical experience at all. I'm just trying to see of this is even possible.
I have a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration, would I need to further my eduction more or can I just get some entry-level job and work my way up?
Started a new job as a 'project manager' my official title is 'project specialist' but I do all admin work. I don't work on any projects. I help users with problems with my system that I work on. I inform users of delays and such... its more of a systems admin job without looking into the technical aspects of this... what kind of job do you think this is ? and what should I do to move to the next level as I feel I can do much more than this ? Thanks!
When people get recruited in campus interviews by a software company and are offered a good salary what is it that you are supposed to do , do they ask you to write entire programs or just parts of it ? Or is there something else you can do like marketing ? What is the maximum position you can rise to with a bachelor's degree and maybe an mba , is project manager to end of an average software engineer's rise ?
Classes I need to take in high school?

Im going for a technical job interview and I am not sure if I should wear a suit and tie, or just wear something business cassual. Previously, for technical jobs I noticed that people came dressed with business casual attire but not tie nor business coat. Will I be over-dress if I wear the business suit? ... I have being told I will meet the VP of Operations and other Corporate managers. Thanks for advice.
I have a Bachelor of Science Degree in Business Administration.
I've been told it's an excellent branch to go into with my degree. What jobs do most people in my field get in the airforce? Would I need training first? Are there specific bases in the country that require my degree? Do you know of any?
Sorry for so many questions, I am planning to ask a recruiter soon, but I wanted to check with others online too.
The curriculimum didn't emphasize the technical skills but the business side therefore, I don't know any programming language. I only have general knowledge on visual basic, windows server 2003 administrator and SQL (only 1 class of each) and I am bilingual in Spanish/English. Someone can give me some ideas? I have heard of Business Analyst but what else?
Have 2 years of project management experience, one year of which is technical. Overall 6 years experience, residing in Bangalore.
I just graduated with a BS in Construction Management and I'm not really interested in the field. At most jobs in this field you have to work at least 60 hours a week which I'm all set with. What are some careers outside the field that would be impressed with this degree?
