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.

Employment Information

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.


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.
