Considering pivoting into tech. Currently considering Project Management or Presales tech. I understand the general roles of each. Presales seem to make more than PM, so I am leaning towards presales. Curious if any PMs considered presales and why you decided to do Project management instead

I’ve actually considered pre sales but I kept moving up in the PM world. Now I’m a consultant specializing in PM. It’s hard to switch over to pre sale without contacts.

Thank you PM1! If you don’t mind sharing, How much was your starting pay, what is it now as a consultant? And how many hours were you typically working before consulting and how many do you work now?

At first I started as a contractor. My rates went very quickly from $40/hr to $90/hr. Now in consulting role $180k. I started my PM career in 2019. Hope that helps!

That’s very helpful, thank you!!

In my experience, pre-sales folks usually have a technical background.

Although, it does take the a some months to find their first position, I know of many from different backgrounds who have switched to pre-sales by taking a boot camp and obtaining certs. Essentially, that’s the route I would take.

Asking advice from a recruiter: I’ve been recently laid off :( This week I took some time to reflect, talk to friends and family. I want to be more thoughtful on my next move and although interviewing right away would be logical I feel I want to take a break and some time for myself. Take a month or two off working and use that time to plan thoughtfully on my next move. Would having that gap in my resume be an issue when I go back to the job market?
