Project managers are essential to, well, projects. They take on roles that plan and oversee each project to ensure the work is completed on time and within a certain budget. That said, the job is so much more than just that.
A project manager is also responsible for finding project resources, making sure the budget has been prepared and keeping stakeholders up-to-date throughout the entire project. Project managers definitely have a hand in a little bit of everything when it comes to a project.
In a normal week, project managers can expect to work regular full-time hours, but when it comes down to the project deadline, they typically work longer hours during the week and may even pick up a few weekend shifts.
