Currently in finance (investment banking), was in tech consulting for 4 yrs prior to this. Interested in a PM role, is there any training or bootcamp I can do to better my chances? Is the transition not possible at all? Know the market is not great but have not had any PM in my network getting laid off…

I am currently a full-time product designer at a small agency in Toronto. A really good opportunity came up to work at a big corporate as a product designer as a contract 6+months they also offered to pay x2 my current salary. I don’t want to give up my full time job for a contract job (kind of risky for me) but I also don’t want to lose this opportunity. What should I do? Is it possible to take on both jobs for now?

If you’re having problems hiring associates this is why you might be having problems:
1. You have a bad culture, and people tell their friends not to work for you (no short term fix there)
2. Your hiring processes are terrible (easily fixable)
3. Compensation (may be more difficult to fix depending on the firm)
4. Poor benefits and work life balance compared to the pay/prestige of your firm … More in comments

Wondering if anyone can share the approximate timeline after applying to Target Corp. to hearing something from them. Applied 9/1 and on the applicant portal the status still says “in progress.” I got a great internal referral, but I’ve not reached out to the hiring manager. 😬 I know there were a few hundred applicants — what’s a realistic timeline and what could I say to the hiring manager if I reach out to them. Many thanks.

I am currently a manager. Accepted a position back in patient care for more money and a better schedule. Spoke to my RVP today who raved about my performance and was looking for feedback for the next manager. I do not treat patients and he was interested in how to best prep the next “non-clinical” manager as others in the region were fired or underperformed. I am wrong to be insulted that he did not offer a wage increase? Should I negotiate or run as I have been feeling undervalued?

So I recently interviewed for an associate PM role with my current company. I’ve been a store manager with them for 11 years. During the interviews, I felt like things were growing great and the feedback I got at the end was great. You’d think given my time knowing the product/ company for so long, that I’d be a great fit but I got rejected and haven’t gotten feedback probably will get ghosted. Should I shoot my shot and advocate for myself with the hiring manager either way?
