The folks over at Software Advice, an online project management technology consultancy, were nice enough to share their recent report on positions in the digital project management field. They analyzed over 200 job listings to learn what employers seek most in Digital Project Manager candidates.
Their conclusion: “While a higher education degree (particularly in marketing or business) will strengthen an applicant’s chances of landing a DPM role, our analysis suggests that several years' professional experience, particularly that which is industry-relevant, is a greater qualifier for this position...The most competitive candidates will have backgrounds that incorporate business, technology, communications and design.”
