Project management has changed!

 "Project management has changed" is what I was informed.

As a result, this head-hunter refused to consider me for a PjM job; since I've been doing 1,000 other things for the past 7 years.

The fact that I've been sharpening my technical skills and updating my knowledge of the Software Development world is irrelevant.

So, my questions are:
  • Has PjM changed, and how?
    • I don't recall noticing any new fads, even though I frequent sites like pm.stackexchange.com almost daily, and I am ranked in the top 12% of 23,000+ users.
  • Does it really matter that I haven't done any active PjM work for a while?
    • Keep in mind that I never formally learned PjM, it's a skill I'm born with.
  • Shouldn't it be advantageous that I have hands-on experience with state-of-the-art technology?
    • Or do they prefer PjMs who haven't had a chance to keep up with the latest technologies?

Your thoughts are appreciated. My thoughts on the subject were written 6 years ago at the post titled
Why a technical Project Manager?
