Just in time for those New Year’s resolutions…here comes the annual PM Network Jobs Report. Interested in opening a new chapter in your career? Open this article first.

The 2018 Jobs Report tells you the project outlook in seven different industry sectors: telecom, finance, construction, IT, healthcare, aerospace and defense, and energy. While the project delivery approach (agile vs. hybrid vs. waterfall) may be different in each sector, and some industries have hotter talent markets in certain countries (think construction in China), all are affected by digital disruption. And the world’s job outlook, in general, is very bright for project managers: 22 million new project-oriented jobs will be created in the next 10 years.

Besides the industry-by-industry breakdown, the 2018 Jobs Report includes an informative infographic spelling out where the growth will be; a profile of five country hot spots (did you know India’s economy is predicted to grow by seven percent this year?); an article explaining opportunities in the gig economy for freelance project talent; and a roundup of practitioner views on how to stand out in the job market. There’s also a preview of some eye-opening figures from PMI’s soon-to-be-released salary survey, Earning Power.

This valuable 20-page report can help you get your New Year off to a roaring start…and help you meet that career-advancement resolution.

I was just going through this issue. Very Interesting.

I did not see a mention for the salary ranges in Canada and was also surprised to see it is not one of the top 10 countries in PM salaries. I know salaries there are not high but didn't expect that they will be that low too compared to others especially that taxes are high here.

Hello Rami,

Please "hang in there." The full Salary Survey will be released later this month and you should find the data you are looking for! Thanks for your patience.

That's great Dan. Thanks for the information. Please update us when it is released. Cheers !
