I am a new grad in Canada with 0-1 yrs of experience. I am planning to build a career in project management and currently have an offer for a program coordinator position. Should I take it? How much salary should I expect in the industry as a beginner?

Program/project coordinator is the first steps to project management so I would take it. Salary depends on so many things could be $40-$80k

Thank you for your response. Just a follow up question to that: Do you believe doing a certification from PMI institution like CAPM help at this early stage or should I wait and then get PMP itself?

It truly depends on the industry, the company, and your specific location these days, so it’s hard to say. If it feels like a good fit and opportunity and you’re happy with the pay, I’d say go for it.

Thank you for your response. It’s tech industry with a mid size company in Toronto. I am not happy with the pay, but very happy with the company and it feels like a cultural fit. I am confused because it feels like I might be settling for less and it might affect my career trajectory for a long time.
