    Help! Seeking a position in IT Management


    by email_quick ·

    Hello All,

    I would like to transition from being a Senior Developer (10 years) to IT/Project Management. I have recently graduated with Master of Science in Management (Specialization: IT Managemnt).

    I am currently seeking a position in IT/Project Management (Entry-level/Intermediate).

    I definitely need a transition into IT management as I am getting really bored of programming and moreover there is absolutely no career growth in my current company.

    Any assistance in relevant job sites/job postings/career links/recruiter information/advice/suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

    Please let me know.

      Is a totally different position and life style. You need to look at what they do and what you do first. They may never work on coding or even help with it. They need to know it but most do not get their hands dirty buy doing it. Yes some are hands on but most have allot of other thing to worry about.
      I have been an IT director and manager; it is not what I like. I like doing things with computers and helping users, it becomes a thing that most managers can not do because of every thing that they have to do.
      If you still seek a management career you need to go back to school and get an MBA, take classes on managing people. And learn to be a person that makes others want to do a good job.
