Currently pursuing my Masters in Technology Management and working as a Hardware Developer full time for almost 2 years. However, I have been struggling in breaking into Product Management. Any suggestions on what I can do to make myself more marketable?

A lot of places want product managers with a little more data-based experience rather than hardware development. If you can pivot into something like that, you might up your chances. Make sure you're networking, have an updated LinkedIn, etc. as well: people like to hire people they know or who are in similar circles when it comes to PM.

I feel like every company lies about “working your way up.” You’re never allowed to blatantly say that you don’t like your position and you’d like to transition to HR or Finance. It’s almost as if once you get in claims, you’re stuck.

If you’re a manager and you see an employee that wants to branch out into a different department, why would you keep them boxed in for 2+ years?

Are there some background mechanics that I’m missing?
