Desi folks, need help. I am frustrated with my current role, feel stuck and losing confidence every single passing day. Been job hunting for past year but no luck. Working in IT advisory but looking to move to program manager roles in tech. What are some of the companies that I can target which can offer a way out of consulting. I am starting to get minor panic attacks about not being able to change jobs.

From those interviews what was your take away? Do they need more technical knowledge, industry expertise, hands on proficiency or is it personality match?
You should lay out the job descriptions you are interested in pursuing alongside your resume - score high, medium, low on each requirement and work on those that need to be polished, maybe get some certifications. Take some time in preparing and you will be off the market like hot cake. Be mindful it’s pandemic, last qtr with fewer openings right now. Come back with a bang into the new year. Good luck!

I think it is combination of story telling, tech skills, and general selling capability. I am pretty good at execution but I am bad at story telling and selling myself. This is what is causing me concerns, how do I become a better story teller and improve my sales pitch?

What location are you at OP? I think the industry in the nearby market is also key to finding your next role

Based out of NY

Have 10+years of exp in management consulting with focus on requirements, Application implementation, data, PMO, stakeholder management, financial risk management

What is your current role op?

Manager at EY doing exactly the above

OP - same situation. I am stuck in erp hell :(

I have done few interviews these past few months but couldn’t make it past the first round for few and didn’t get through amazon loop.

OP - do you need sponsorship?

Yes, I do need sponsorship. I am on H1

Do you feel you are well prepared? Industry interviews are quite rigorous and consulting doesn’t help us being at a pro level with what we do. It’s honestly bits and pieces of all.

OP - if you ask most interviewers will share feedback on what you could have done better, or why you didn't get the role. Do reach out and get that, it may help focus on what the underlying issue is.

I have tried but have not received a single feedback

What is the best way to network and prepare for interviews?

Join meet ups , now virtual events. Connect with all your friends and past colleagues. Many places are hiring.

Hi everyone, I’ve been trying to land my first product design role and I can’t seem to get my foot in the door. I’ve asked mentors from ADPlist to review my LinkedIn and resume as well as my portfolio and I haven’t had any luck. I graduated from uni in 2020, was bedridden for a whole year which led me to fall behind and I’m embarrassed that I can’t seem to get a job after months of actively trying - I desperately need help as I’m on a Visa that requires me to be employed.
Any advice?
