Breaking through to the next level as a senior PM - where are the jobs?
I've been steadily climbing my way up over the years and have over 10yrs of experience in the PM world, mainly coordinating of IT services. Currently manage a small team of BAs, coordinators, working with vendors, etc. to implement systems. I work for the government (I'm in Downtown Vancouver fyi) and consider it a stable job.
However, as of late I'm finding it difficult to break into the next level (i.e. director/ED) simply because there are so few at this level in my space (openings rarely ever come up), and the way the government is structured in general.
At this point I'm willing to expand my search.
For those of you who have broken into the $+120K salary range in the project management space (ideally in the systems implementations field), where would you advise for me to look?
What position (titles)/keywords should i be searching for?
I've scoured the large companies in the area (i.e. other government areas like Health, Transport, etc., universities, etc.) and all over Indeed and workopolis, but can't seem to find related positions in that range.
Are there remote US job sites that would perhaps be better (I hear a the market in the US is crazy hot right now, but can't seem to find anything)?
