How hard is it to get an entry level role as an Integrated Producer in a bigger ciry?

I have a year of experience out of college in engineering and consulting. I recently saw a business planning, Apple Music role at Apple that I feel like I’m a good fit for and was wondering if anyone would be willing to refer me. I’m passionate about music and am a producer during my free time and feels like this role sits at the intersection between music, tech, and strategy. If someone would like to chat a bit more about it, would love to reach out!

I pitched a project at work and my company loved it. They want to turn it into a full fleged series. I created pitch docs, episode treatments, etc that they are using to gauge interest from production companies & streamers. They have not guaranteed what my role would be on the series or if I will be on set. What would be a reasonable ask? Could I get a "creator" credit or would that go to the company? I want to be the lead producer on the project. Not sure how pay works if a streamer buys it.

I need opinions on this. Just started a new PM role (at an IPG agency) last month but I recently got hit up by a recruiter from another agency (WPP agency) for a pretty enticing PM role on a 360 AOR account. Further context: The PM role I'm in currently is my first PM role ever (I came from an entry level AE/Producer backgrund) I know jumping ship for the other PM role would look terrible but tell me why you would OR would not jump ship?
