I never worked directly with one of them, she just knew who I was and my M/SM always told her I did good work. However I was on long term projects. I’d recommend you talk to an M/SM you’re close to and they might be able to introduce you to a partner and get you involved with some initiatives with PMDs. Make sure you say that you’re interested in GSAP and need 2 PMD supporters.

One was my project MD and I wasn’t close initially, but made an effort to connect with him and join any project initiatives he was leading to get acquainted. The other PMD was out of my local office who I had met only a few times, but I had reached out prior to GSAP explaining I intended to apply and wanted her as my sponsor as I wanted to go into her line of work when I came back
