What pushed you to pursue a career in project management?

As previously mentioned, I first chose this career path because I hate routine. We all know that by definition a project has a beginning and an end. Thus, this remarkable career will never be repetitive.

Also, my sense of organization is an important asset for the job. As a sensitive and empathetic person, it has always been easy for me to connect with the people around me and recognize their needs. I quickly respond to my team’s requirements by leveraging their abilities and ambitions. In addition, I adore teamwork. I believe that I have a head start as a project manager and possess all the necessary skills to progress in this fantastic field.
