Hi all, I need your help - I work in a bank as a product manager, 3 YOE and I want to move to Tech companies (I.e. Google) as a product manager.

This year I have not got any interview from FAANG (I don’t know why…) but got two offers from Consultancy.
1. Digital Product owner (80% focusing on financial industry)
2. Digital strategy consultant ( 50% focusing on high tech industry) but my worry is that this would be more strategy work

Which one should I choose that can get me into Tech?

Hi

I'm going for an internal position switch to strategy consultant in advanced analytics.

The internal switch requires a normal interview 30' talk about motivations, strengths, ... And a case interview.

Some competitors search for 'creative' ways of tackling the first minutes of the 30' talk by creating eg. a video where others present the candidate.

How is this perceived by hiring managers, and if perceived good, what other ways are great?

Thx
