Is this for me?
Consider a career in management/
supervision if you are good at
seeing the big picture, have the
ability to inspire others in
pursuing a common goal, and are
not afraid of having difficult
conversations.

Managers or supervisors lead teams, departments or buildings. They are knowledgeable about their products or groups; they set goals and lead their teams toward accomplishing them.

Managers have more and different roles than those they supervise, and ultimately they are responsible for the quality of the product or service that their workers make or perform. They set schedules, delegate work, pick up the slack when their group is shorthanded, help solve problems between employees, advocate on behalf of their employees to upper management, and sometimes need to hire or fire people.

Good interpersonal relationships are an important management skill, and great managers inspire their people to do their best work.

The median annual wage for management occupations was $100,790 in May 2016, which was the highest wage of all the major occupational groups. Salaries will vary depending on the type of industry, i.e. manufacturing, education, health care, etc.


Outlook
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics Occupational Outlook Handbook, employment of management occupations is projected to grow nine percent from 2016 to 2026, about as fast as the average for all occupations, which will result in about 878,300 new jobs. Employment growth is expected to be driven by the formation of new organizations and expansion of existing ones, which should require more people to manage these operations.

Employment Information

Is this for me?
Consider a career as a marketing
manager if you are creative,
outgoing, friendly, communicate
well, attentive to detail, and
skilled in computer use, budgeting,
negotiating, and long-term planning.

Marketing managers oversee the promotion of a business or product. They create, execute and evaluate advertising campaigns over multiple channels, develop strategies to publicize new products, listen to customer feedback, and report to upper management. They build relationships with media, vendors, employees and clients to ensure their company is presented in the best light possible.

While traditional communication skills are important for this field, digital marketing skills such as search engine optimization, analytics and staying up to date on social media are increasingly important.

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics Occupational Outlook Handbook, the 2016 median salary for marketing managers was $131,180 per year.
