Most advised route is internally find a PM team and volunteer for some of their work. Eventually when they have an opening, you become the default best person for the job

yeah I think it's what DS1 said, start internally and then work your way out

If you're already working with customers, then you've probably already overcome the initial hurdle of learning to think with the customer mindset vs. internal solutions. If not, then I'd suggest working toward more customer-facing engineer role (support, technical marketing, presales, QA, etc.). Also, start making some connections with PMs in-house if possible. Chances are they'd love the help and it'll give you a chance to get your feet wet. At that point, it's all about learning and networking. Good luck!

I was at Big 4 consulting for a year before lateraling to ACN recently. It’s been about 6 months at ACN. Now I have an industry offer for Product Manager, which has been my eventual goal. Would it be too soon to jump? Or should I stick around for better exits in a couple of years may be? I’m worried the frequent changes won’t look good on my resume 4 YOE overall, TC at Product Manager is about 20-25k > ACN.

Are PE firms conducting final round interviews virtually?

Do you know of any firms giving out offers from fully virtual interview rounds?

I think I made a faux pas during a discussion with a recruiter when asked what my salary expectations were. I KNOW not to give my number first but I was so caught off guard by the question since it was our initial discussion that I just blurted out a range. I’m afraid that I’ve now locked myself into a range with little room to negotiate if extended an offer. Any advice for how to proceed?
