Work It Daily provides insight on how to apply for positions, how to present yourself at your best in interviews, and how to communicate your insights on interviews and in your career. I noticed another aspect of the hiring process.

Benefits of being a Program Manager

A program manager works on some or all phases of drug design, early clinical trials, drug development, and commercialization. Often, multiple projects are managed in parallel. You will get a bird’s eye view of scenario planning, staying within budget, ensuring departmental collaboration, monitoring progress and brief communications with top management.

A major advantage for me is the interaction between multiple departments and functions working towards a common goal. I especially like working with people, thinking critically and finding effective solutions to problems.

Work-life balance for program managers

There is no single formula. It is important to remember that life comes first and an unhappy life makes it difficult to thrive at work. When the project is over, do a quick review: How well did your initial estimates of time, success metrics, other resources, etc. hold up? In general, a mad dash for deadlines negatively affects work-life balance; So, plan your work as much as possible (easier said than done).
