Definitely, project management is a great career choice!

Here are some reasons that would justify why this is a good career choice:

  • High demand - project management is one of the most rapidly growing professions in the world (Stats: According to the project management trends report, project management roles will reach 15.7 million between 2010 and 2020 i.e. a faster rate in comparison to the national average for all occupations)

  • Great Opportunities -  unlimited options. These opportunities grow with experience, professional certification courses, and skill improvement

  • High Earning - Salary of a project manager is comparatively high and thus is a good career choice

  • Diverse Exposure - with a variety of industries requiring project managers, there's scope for diverse exposure. Industries with the highest levels of project-oriented work include business services, construction, manufacturing, utility industries, finance, and insurance, etc

  • Self Improvement - Project managers keep on learning new things during their careers. With a number of project management certification courses available, a project manager has a chance of self-improvement

For a clearer idea take a look at this blog https://www.edureka.co/blog/project-manager-roles-and-responsibilities/.

You will have to communicate with the team members, stakeholders and identify the issues and resolve them while keeping track of the budgettime, and other resources so that it gets approved by the client/stakeholders thus building trust. 

There's a youtube playlist that you can refer to in case you want to learn PMP and get certified.

Best of Luck!
