The role of a project manager can be an enriching experience. They are responsible for every facet of a project, from parceling out tasks to picking materials. A project manager should be multi-talented when leading their team and have both hard and soft skills. 

A few personality traits are expected of a project Manager; empathy, modesty, authority, pragmatism, foresight, organization, and client orientation. For starters, having a PMP certification as a credential makes you more appealing to employers and recruiters.

So, a project management position is a good entry point into an organization. You can get a role as a Business Change Analyst and from that to a Business Change Manager and then into project management.
