Working on a project team can be great experience for a career in Project Management. Technical experience is very important for PMs; in fact, business analysts, developers, and other technical employees make some of the best project managers. Experience as a technical member of a project team will, make you a much better project manager than someone who does not have a technical background or experience working on a multitude of different types of projects.
While you are working on projects, keep track of how the projects are going, and which team you are on initiating, planning, executing, monitoring & controlling, and closing. Knowing what areas of the project you’ve been working on will help you when it comes to applying for project management roles.
