Suggest doing the job for a side huddle or community service or something. Certifications are a negative signal to me.

Don’t spend your time on a PMP. The CSPO helped me break into a role to prove I knew the basics. I also took a few PM courses on Udemy which helped me with the interviews.

This is great, thanks for your insight!

None. PMP is for program managers.

PMP isn’t necessary for product. CSPO is great. Work more with PMs in your current company too.

I'm trying to get into a SaaS or tech company for MOps/RevOps/SOps, but I think I'm having trouble getting interviews because I'm coming from a 7-year career in the public sector (fundraising).

The work I do is very similar and I feel my resume reflects that, the main difference is my tech stack. I've started certifications for tools like Hubspot, Marketo, and Salesforce - and am wrapping up an MBA - wondering if anyone has any other advice on how to score an interview? TIA!

Always a student. This helps me relate to my own. Mistakes. Confusion. Oopsies like giving the wrong answer when we KNOW it. Learning keeps me off any high horse because sure as the world I’d otherwise get knocked down. We are all students in our classrooms. An indirect bonus is that the connection we make by remembering what it’s like to be a student helps us manage the class better. We relate. We admit. We connect.
