What’s a program manager vs a project manager?

funny

P1, are you trying to be sarcastic or you really don't know a program manager vs a project manager? The former is in charge of managing several projects while the latter is in charge of managing 2-3 projects

like

VP1 - several can be 3 can’t it? If so, then what’s the difference?

like

Program generally means overseeing an ongoing initiative over a longer time period. Project means managing one or more finite projects. When projects are completed, they’re replaced by new projects. Program Manager roles are generally considered a bit more prestigious, but it depends on the program or project.

like

SC1, equally, a project manager could be handling just one project. The idea is that a program = several related projects. For example, a data governance program would involve several different projects within the program and there may be mtiple project managers leading each of those projects cts but generally there would be one single program manager overseeing the entire data governance program.

I went through a pretty rigorous interview process for a marketing project manager but ultimately wasn't given job.

How do I again the experience if I'm limited by the type of work we do?
