Has anyone here worked on a tobacco account? I don't have much of a hangup on the product itself (users know what they're getting into, like alcohol) but I'm wondering if the work is usable in a book, or if it's taboo in the eyes of hiring managers/decision makers. Weighing whether to pursue a role ripping heaters or not...

I currently work as a marketing coordinator for a large supermarket, primarily dealing with scheduling projects and vendor management. While I love my job, I’ve found myself inspired & intrigued by my coworkers who are in strategy roles. I long to use my creative side (former designer), and I feel drawn to learn more about strategy. The problem is I have a huge lack of confidence and don’t understand where to start. Any book recommendations, general ideas for transition, or similar stories? THX!

I've become really jaded about consulting. I find all so often you need to tell the client what they want to hear to keep their business and I feel like so much of the what I recommend doesn't actually get implemented. I'm looking to make a career switch so I can both create and execute on my strategies. A product management path seems very promising for this. Does anyone who switched from consulting to product management have any recommendations of h helpful PM books, courses, or programs?

I'm trying to switch from consulting to product management. Is it possible to make the switch directly or would I need to go to business school? Are any FAANG companies keen on PMs with a consulting background? Are there any courses or books that could help me make the switch? I've been seeinga lot of ads Product School for instance. Is that a better value substitute for business school? Sorry for the question overload lol. Thanks in advance for your help 🙂
