You could go the MBA route. Although I think most tech PM roles require a technical background as well.

I mean if you’re a vet currently with 2 years work experience, then now could be a great time. Otherwise feel like you could be quite a bit older then the rest of the class

I’ve been working to an unhealthy degree lately. And I’ve been making the excuse that I have a lot of work right now, but I’m starting to wonder if I’m addicted to it. Part of it is anxiety and perfectionism. But my behavior is now actively harmful to myself and starting to harm my marriage. How do I stop? I’m not talking work-life balance. I mean, how do I say, “I don’t care that the client wants this tomorrow and I’m not close to done, I’m going to sleep tonight”?

Hi - I currently work in marketing, account-side, and have for the past few years. The area I enjoy most (and am best at) is in the project management area - keeping people on top of deliverables, routing projects/feedback to creative vs client etc. Is this a role I could potentially pivot to? Tbh I’m not sure what “project manager” even entails, as I’m sure it’s not just marketing-related. Would love to know more about what daily tasks entail. Any insight would be helpful!
