Had a colleague around the same age leave our company (F50 Tech) and move to a smaller company and take on a PM role. Much easier to make the transition to PM if you’re not only trying for FAANG. You can gain experience there and then pivot in the future.

Alternatively since you don’t have much work experience, you can try looking into early career PM programs - lots of the bigger tech companies offer them.

Appreciate the advice. Early career PM programs at FAANG are crazy competitive with <1% acceptance. I think my strategy now is smaller companies
