A job opening was listed for a different practice group (m&a) of my firm at the same level as I am. I currently work for DR/arbitration but I have acceptable m&a experience and connections at m&a group. My pg is semi-under-staffed. How should I address my willingness to switch pgs? I directly work with a principle who joined the firm just this year.

If your pg is understaffed I can’t see them being keen for you to move to m&a?

Hi Googlers, I wanted to request for some genuine advice.
I hope to work at Google within the next 3 years. My question is for PM/PgM roles what type of background has historically been more successful in the role itself (I don’t mean only from a recruitment perspective) - coming from MBB with digital transformation & previous B4 consulting experience OR coming from an industry role w/ analytics focused product/project management & previous B4 experience. DMs welcome!

Do you disclose when you were promoted on your CV? I’ve been as a assistant manager for over a year but have just been ‘promoted’ to manager. Have been doing the same role for the entire time… only thing that changed was my official role title. Do I need to split this out into two roles on my CV?

Would ideally like to keep as one optically to avoid having to ‘spend more time in the manger role’… as I’ve been doing that role for a year now and keen to move on!

Thanks in advance and Merry Xmas!
