Job Outlook for Project Managers

Demand for skilled project managers is strong, even during challenging economic times. Because project managers organize and streamline processes to conserve resources, demand for their services often increases when budgets for other activities suffer.

Current workforce trends indicate that approximately 2 million new project-oriented roles will be created annually through 2027.

According to the PMI Project Management Salary Survey, project management salaries average $90,260. Project managers with technical specialties such as IT or construction can earn significantly more.
