Podcast Interviews for New Project Managers

24 Feb 2011 - 07:25 AM under Career | Posted by PMStudent

I’m honored to be invited to do an interview every now and then, and a new one just came out.

I’m “the guy who helps new project managers” so the questions and answers in these interviews are geared towards those topics. ?I realized this morning that I’ve never put a list of these together in one place, which would be helpful for those of you who enjoy listening to interviews using an MP3 player or from your computer.

So here are some of the most recent ones. ?I’ll put them in descending order by date.

“How do I overcome the Catch 22 situation of getting into project management, that in order to get assigned a project you need to have experience as a PM. And in order to get some experience as a PM you first need to have a project assigned. Is there a way around this?”
