“Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life.” -Confucius

Yo. Is Confucius serious? Well, he clearly never met a digital project manager. He'd realize that we need to talk about this career path, because it's so varied and there are so many ways to go. And it can be really tricky.

Come out and meet your fellow Philly DPMs and get real about your career path! DPM Philly is hosting a panel conversation about the about the possible career paths DPMs take. Our panelists will be:

Patrice Embry, Freelance Digital PM (Moderator)
Isheeta Shah, VP, PMO at Hero Digital
Chris Urban, Engagement Manager, Professional Services at Confluent
Amber Burgess, Technical Project Manager at Linode
Brett Harned, Director of Education at TeamGantt

We'll talk about the panelists’ own career progressions, what motivated them to go in the direction they chose (if they chose it!) and where they want to go (or not go) next. We’ll also explore everything around your career path: education and training, job titles and descriptions, characteristics of great DPMs and the many possible paths you might take. Moderated by PM Patrice Embry, you'll leave with insights from real world pros, which you can use to help choose your own path. And who knows...maybe there's something to what Confucius said.
