I want to get out of consulting and work in software industry as a “semi-technical”(so not necessarily just functional) product manager. Currently have about 3.5 years of tech consulting experience and being considered for early promo to Manager. Focus for past 2 years has been product management/agile delivery Not having great luck landing interviews yet. How do I leverage this background? Or is it too early to wanna go full PM route? Any tips would be super helpful. Thanks in advance!

I’m interested in becoming a product manager one day. I’ve been contacted about applying to a growth marketing role at a tech company. Do you all think that this would be a path that could increase my chances of eventually becoming a product manager? Or am I better off continuing on as a consultant? Please note I’m new to learning about product management.

What’s the difference between exiting at C vs M (or SC)? I’m interviewing for a Product Manager role that would net at least a 20% salary increase. At the same time, I’m having second thoughts about leaving consulting given the current trend of layoffs.

Trying to decide between applying for sales jobs (account exec) or something more ops/PM related, work towards product manager. Great storyteller, dangerous with tech theory/principles (can talk to a lot) but don’t have a very strong technical background in terms of hard skills. Would love to someday work for a venture capital firm and/or a game changing startup. Advice?

Have an interview coming up for a Product Manager role at a startup and want to get more familiar with the product. Their product/website isn’t for all consumers and requires special information to sign up that I don’t have because I’m not the intended audience for the site. Any suggestions on how to get around this? I might be able to fake my way in and provide junk data but don’t know if that looks bad since my interviewers will know I did it to check out their site.

Huge post on valuing myself and needing advice. I have 10 years of experience (last 5 in agencies). I’ve never had a negative review, I always have struggles with confidence. I just got an interview for a senior product manager role that i feel woefully under qualified for. Its a big step up from PM. I look at my peers and feel like maybe i just havent been confident to ask for that upgrade but holy crap am i nervous about this interview. Background - not even the role I applied for.
