Even with high unemployment globally, key project management jobs will remain hard to fill.

As of this writing, there are more than 4,200 project management positions available on LinkedIn in the greater New York City area alone. Imagine how many there are worldwide. The numbers are staggering. Yet, many of the key project management roles such as those at the VP and executive level for heading up PMOs, product strategy, and portfolio management, will be tough to fill because of the lack of qualified applicants.

Make no mistake about it: Project management is a growth industry. In hard times, such as those experienced by many countries today, the discipline of project management can be the important “force multiplier” that improves performance. For organizations searching for that key professional, it will be difficult, but not impossible to find the right candidate. For those with a strong set of technical, business and leadership skills; a proven track record; and a willingness to relocate, the future is looking brighter every day.
