I’m often asked about what kinds of training would be most valuable for communicators interested in learning and growing in our business.
One of the most overlooked areas that I strongly recommend be treated as a core competency in communications is project management – if you’re interested in investing in your career in this industry, honing your skills in project management can offer a significant advantage.
Communicators are almost always working on the front lines, having to juggle multiple files and deadlines while managing risk exposure. A strong foundation in project management – the discipline of managing the variables of time, budget and quality – will help set you apart.
