I worked with several startups, from a project based in San Francisco to companies from Israel. It’s always fun to work with less structured organizations, finally put together a strong team and create a network within a company. I haven’t chosen to become a Project Manager, the job kinda fell into my lap. I really enjoyed helping people around me, and I simply noticed that the skills I had were enough to grow in that area. I highly emphasize that the course should have a lot of practical lessons. I have structured the course in such a way that would enable the students to not only get theoretical knowledge, but also real tools which they could use in their day to day life. My hobbies are running, watching movies, and spending time on self-education. You have to constantly work on yourself if you want to stay and grow in this field.
