Morning folks, I've been deliberating the prospect of a new job position for something like a week now. I'm currently in the field of video production with core strengths in multimedia production and design -- testing, accessibility and usability, the usual suspects really. Although currently in a "very" small company the role I have is very much client facing but without the ability to flex my muscles in any true fashion; in other words I very follow the lead rather than help massage new ideas to take shape from a business perspective. Now then, I've been given the opportunity for a major web development company as a Project Manager; not at a senior level and neither at a junior level, with the option for Prince 2 accreditation within the first six months of employment [obviously this isn't just a "given" it involves some serious work]. It's not a question of money [although the wages are more - but not by much] but more a question of defined career path with the ability to take new skills further and may not with the new company in question. And the reason for the post? Well, I've minimal Project Management experience dealing with clients and suppliers as and when required - having successfully completed an MA in Interactive Multimedia Production has proven that I have the ability to perform as required but only through academic means -- as I've already stated my real world experience is minimal. The company is clearly prepared to invest in me but there is still an element of doubt in mind that I could completely mess things up and wind up with no job! My current position is pretty much safe and secure but I can't see a path that allows me to grow [I've been there for just over four years]. Back to the reason for the post -- are there any Project Managers on these boards, and if so what would they recommend? Go with it and give it my best shot as I'll never know if I don't -- I'm sure I'll be regretting it every day if I didn't go, but then again if the going gets tough at the new place I'll be thinking "why did I come here?!". I'm at an age now where I need to look seriously at the future -- I'm not old, but then again I'm not a twenty-something living straight out of Uni living with his parents... I'm a "just thirty-one" chap!! I'd appreciate any gut feelings from you folks... I know project management involves decision making, which is something quite laughable at this moment as I'm trying to make the most informed decision but it feels like I'm stalling!!!
