- Life at Tekrevol
On 1st December 2022, Zohaib Hasan Nizami, VP of Project Management at TekRevol, conducted an informative session on “Career in Project Management” at Bahria University Karachi.
He did a Master’s in Finance and Bachelor’s in Software Engineering from Bahria University and has accumulated six years of experience in the field over the course of his professional tenure.
Key Takeaways From The Session
In the session, Zohaib delivered the key steps students should take when considering Project Management as a career. He started with what makes project management a top career choice, and according to him, project management is a highly rewarding and demanding career option.
Moreover, project management revolves around managing, planning, organizing, and safeguarding multiple resources simultaneously. Hence, the job is demanding, requiring the professionals to wear multiple hats simultaneously.
Zohaib also educated on the importance of gaining hands-on experience in the industry, which gives entry-level associates the fundamentals of project management.
You start in the industry mainly for an entry-level project management position and evolve with time and knowledge. Some significant initiatives are completing relevant certifications in Scrum and Agile or other project management courses.
It is crucial to choose an organization that is employee friendly and motivates employees to the fullest. As you manage different projects with different people, you gain the much-needed experience that boosts your confidence and prepares you for a senior manager position.
With several years in a leadership and project management role, you become eligible to be a Vice President when you have experience managing multiple project managers, seamlessly work cross-functionally, and be able to interact with the C-suite level executives in the industry.
Zohaib explained the importance of using Project Management tools like Jira, Asana, Trello, Teamwork, and Microsoft Project and how they work and help him and his team manage and complete their deliverables at TekRevol.
The session concluded with a healthy round of applause and a Q&A session where several students put forward their observations, takeaways, and concerns regarding the field.
Students loved the session as it was interactive and helpful, showing them a dimension of this career path.
In keeping with our mission of empowering the next generation, the goal of this session was to motivate the youth to become the leaders of tomorrow and transform our people into thought leaders who are set to impact future generations!
Through sessions like these, we encourage all TekRevolutionaries to step up, spread knowledge and expertise and give back to society.
