Product Management jobs and other management positions are some of the best careers you can obtain as an engineer if you wish to advance in a company!
Even if you work at a start-up, one of these jobs can help train you to become a leader in that organization and within your industry. Why is that? Let’s take project manager positions for instance. Someone in this job will find that they need to become intimately familiar with all aspects of the company’s products, shipping, customer service, communications and infrastructure. Even if you are fresh out of school, you will be exposed to all those different aspects of business early on, giving you familiarity with all the parts of the business and industry. This can be invaluable if you go to look for a different job somewhere in the future, as the more hats you can wear within an organization, the greater your value will be to the corporation you wish to work for, and that will be rewarded with a higher starting salary and better benefits.
The main job of a product manager is not to do the footwork of packing and shipping so much as it is to research information to let employers know what they should be building and why (usually for technical projects). You will still find yourself gaining a lot of knowledge outside of your immediate duties, which can prove invaluable in the search for a perfect place to start or continue your career. It could also take your career into program management or product management and get a start on overseeing the development of single projects or whole lines of technical goods, making them ready to go to market.
Finding a job in product management, program management or project management will help bring about a long, successful career for you. This is your first project – to find the perfect position.
