Job Knowledge is Power For Project Engineers On Path To Project Management

By Shawn Desgrosellier

If you’ve built a great career in commercial construction, it’s likely you already know Job Knowledge is Power. It gives you the opportunity to be informed of what’s next, what’s ahead and your earning potential and increased responsibilities with your next career decision. But most job changes, whether they come as the result of internal promotion or the desire to move to a new firm, require a well rounded consideration of what’s is most important to you.

One of the major missteps professionals can make is to take a role that does not take advantage of your past experience. This is a hinderance to most careers in construction and, any industry, really – because hiring mangers are unable to see a consistent path of professional intent. By moving from a Construction Project Engineer to a Project Management Professional, you’ll show your commitment to the career path and your firm will likely reward you for your longevity of vision. If you current firm is not able to provide you with the opportunity to step up, you may want to consider relocating or moving to another firm with more upward mobility.
