As a project manager, it is your job to oversee the creation and execution of company projects and ensure that all team members stay on track to meet deadlines. Expect interview questions that will assess your ability to lead a group and communicate effectively to members with different roles and varying concerns. As the scope, schedule, and cost of a project can change frequently, the interviewer may ask you to role-play a few scenarios in which a project deadline changes or several group members leave the company.
What was the largest project you managed?1 Answer
I replied that it was beginning my own Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) certificated, on-demand, air charter company. I concisely described the process, and I said it was an investment of about $1 million of my own money! I wish instead I had described beginning a Product Management Department in a regional bank to provide critical products to make the overall bank attractive to a buyer. That was about a $20 million investment.
