Hi, how are you?
Good thanks.

I’m a mechanical engineer project manager.

When I was a kid I always wanted to be an engineer, but I never knew what kind of engineer I wanted to be.

What skills or training you need to do well in your job?
You need to have management skills, and good leadership.

Do you like your job, and if you do what do you like about it? And if you don’t want don’t you like about it?
I like my job, because I have a flexible schedule (I can go home whenever I finish my work, and I can come to work from six o’clock a.m. to nine o’clock a.m.), and I get to help people.
What’s the difference between a good project manager and a bad one?
A good Project manager can lead a group, and actually accomplish something, but a bad project manager just tells people what to do and sits around, and nothing gets accomplished.
