It is widely predicted that by 2020 up to 50% of us are likely to be working on a freelance basis. It seems that the separate identities of employee, intrapreneur, entrepreneur and freelancer are becoming increasingly blurred and we will tend to move between all of these roles in the course of our careers.
The skill that underpins all of these future possible roles is that of project management.
As a serial project manager myself, I believe that the only way to learn to be a good project manager is to project manage. You are already managing one large project – your degree! Look out for modules which might help but also think about setting up your own small projects, drawing upon funding and support available within the university.
At Rise Up we love a project – if you have an idea come and talk to us and we will get you started!
