project management course
to launch your career

Why project management?

With a shortage of nearly 2 million skilled workers, Germany is funding courses to upskill workers through educational vouchers (Bildungsgutschein). As an international living in Germany, you can take advantage of these courses funded by the Jobcenter/Agentur für Arbeit to find your dream project management role. 

Every company today is continually introducing new projects, however, who is managing these projects? That is where project managers come in. They are responsible for overseeing a project, from its conception to the scope and managing the day to day tasks. The project manager ensures the project runs smoothly and flexibly adapts as needed. This is an in-demand role that is well suited to internationals with its great deal of flexibility, attractive salary and often only English skills needed. Match talent can help you find the right course so you can earn your project management certification!

What skills do you need to be successful in this role?

In order to be successful in project management, there are some key skills you will need. Great communication and intrapersonal skills are needed to effectively communicate between your team and the project stakeholders. Additionally the ability to problem solve effectively and adapt as needed. Furthermore, great time management is also a key component to succeeding in this role. However, advanced German knowledge is not always a prerequisite, as during a course that includes German lessons, you will build your industry specific vocabulary and intercultural skills to excel in this role.
