Honey, What You Do For Money? (Project Manager Edition)

Greetings Barbarians! Long days and pleasant nights!

I have a special treat for you! Today, I am about to interview a close friend of mine.  He is my best friend, and I am pleased to have him on the blog. 

Before anything else, I would like to give a shout-out to Ruan! Please check out her sexy podcast here! She offers valuable insights into sexuality that are informative and useful.

Back to our guest for today!

As for our guest for today, we go way back since high school. We grew up together; we share the same taste in music and many other things.  I cannot imagine life without our friendship. It is one of the most cherished things I have in life.  

So, without further ado, I present to you my best friend, Cezar Alivarvar. Let us give him a round of applause!

Mr. A: Hey buddy! Welcome to my blog. I am so glad to have you here. Would you mind telling us a bit about yourself?

Cezar: Yeah bro, I’m Cezar Alivarvar, 34 now man. I am a husband and a father. 

I work at an Architectural Company.  We specialize in Facade and Glass Works as a Project Manager.

Mr. A: That is great! How are that wife and kid? I still have not met your kid. How are they?

Cezar: Well, these are hard and rough times for us all, but we are okay. The wife is doing great; she is still a banker. The kid is an adorable young man, with so much energy, getting more handsome each day. Hahaha, Of course, we will visit you soon.

Mr. A: I look forward to that! How is your mom, by the way?

Cezar: She is well, man. She is having her 1st dose of the vaccine next week. We hope she gets it on schedule.

Mr. A: I am so glad to hear that. I hope Tita is doing well. Now, let us get down to business. So, what exactly does a project manager do? Tell us a bit about your industry? 

Cezar: Yeah. In construction, the project manager is in charge of several projects. The project manager delegates work to his team and ensures productivity. The job title of a project manager is broad. We are liable for commercial, engineering, and all other operations on the projects. They are the Captain of the Ship.

I am in a specific construction industry which is construction specialists. I am an Engineer, but we specialize in interior architectural works and facades. That means the exterior aesthetics of a building.

Mr. A: Sounds like a lot of obligation. Can you tell us what it takes to be successful as a Construction Project Manager? Like the skills needed, or a degree in Engineering?

Cezar: Well, most of the project managers are either engineers or architects. Yes, it is required to have a degree in Engineering or Architecture, at the least. But not just that, you have to have experience. You have to be clear and sure all the time; you also must have exceptional decision-making. You have to have conviction in every word or instruction.

For me, a project manager has two sorts of work preferences. A skillful project manager knows when he is to manage or when he is to operate.

Mr. A: So, is it more on managing skills than engineering prowess? How does your typical day go?

Cezar: Yeah, it is managing everything, managing the engineering and the operations aspects. I start with a meeting with my staff. I must get their targets and activities for the day and hand them instructions. I will have to oversee the productivity and status of all that I had instructed. I have to summarize and compile at the end of the day to ensure an orderly flow of work on the following day.

The goal is to have an orderly flow of work and continuity of work every day.

Mr. A: I am so proud of you, buddy! So, the moment we are all waiting for, was it worth it? Does it pay well, and if it is alright with you, can you give us an estimate on how much you make as a project manager?

Cezar: Thank you, man! Yeah, the perks and the pay is generous also; it is enough. For me, it is up to the person. If they know their worth, he can prove it, and he can get it. Here in the Philippines, if you are a Project Manager, you can earn a least 50k up to 100k each month. That is if you know how much you are worth and the level of experience you have. You can reach up to 150k or more in some instances, based on the type of construction industry. But it usually is on the 50k to 100k monthly gross.

Mr. A: Wow, that is a lot of money! Is there any advice you could offer to my readers aspiring to be Project Managers in the future?

Cezar: Yeah, it pays well, but responsibilities are heavy; each mistake costs time and money. Project managers usually handle million peso projects. To the readers, If you aspire to this type of job title, you have to earn it. You have to experience it; you must always have the integrity to mean what you say. Along the way, you will experience hardships, failures, like me. It had not been a walk in the park for me. Before I got this job title, I failed countless times before I got to where I am now. 

Always work on how you present yourself to people, to the client, your colleagues, even the workers. If you manage to be a Project Manager, you have to learn to listen to everyone in your team. You must have teamwork, the team looks up to you, and you rely on them. That is why you should always listen; they learn from you as much as you learn from them. Learn to be credible. That is how you will be a Manager on a Project.

Mr. A: That is some solid advice. Any parting words to my readers?

Cezar: To everyone who supports Mr. A, including me, let us continue to support his work. Hang in there; these are troublesome times for us. All over the world, it is just a phase; it will be over soon. God bless you all.

Mr. A: Thank buddy! You are always welcome here!

So, there you have it, the inner workings of a Construction Project Manager. I hope you have an enjoyable time. Let us give it to our today’s guest and my best friend, Cezar!
