Shift your thinking about how you frame past work. I am not saying lie or fluff.. just start with the definition of a product manager. Product management jobs can vary so widely from company to company. The specific job at one company could include being scrum master and at another company they are horrified by the idea. I was hired by a very small company as a project manager early in my career. It was clear that they did not know what they were doing, so I was able to define my job. So I did project management and product owner and product management. Product management is the combination of people / process / technology typically. So find stories were you did “product thinking” in your consulting position. Did any customer repeat? If yes then rethink about it as a “program” and think about what you did strategically and tactically. Because this is consulting I would assume you will mostly uncover stories about implementation of tactics.

So there's a company out there called Let's Eat Grandma and there are reasonable and might be worth it! Additionally you can split by "Relevant Experience" or "Product Management Experience" and "Additional Experience" so you can put the PM stuff at the top.

I would add that having a description at the top of the resume is a good idea so you can set up your journey. I think the idea of pulling out a few elements from your consulting experience is a good idea. Treating it like the different products you worked on. (I'm assuming you were working in PM capacity when consulting, so doing the same kind of work.) If the consulting projects weren't as relevant to PM then I would pull out highlights from that job where you acted in a PM capacity/had responsibilities similar to the role rather than including projects separated out.

Hi guys!

But I find I get more nervous for client meetings over zoom than when they were in person or even over zoom in the office.

Still learning the field.

Any advice on what skills are needed to make your resume standout for a conflicts or legal analyst role? I was a practice assistant/legal secretary for 2.5 years and worked a lot with opening new client accounts and consequentially conflicts.

A client has a very-difficult-to-pronounce name which is a tongue twister for me. Don’t intend to butcher the name, but just can’t say it right. Personally, if someone from another culture said my name a bit differently, I just wouldn’t mind. This client is touchy about it. How do you handle this?

You ever feel like you're just failing to excel in consulting? Today and yesterday have been really hard to tap into any discipline to push past whatever brain fog/lack of motivation is preventing me from making progress on this project. I don't know if I'm just tapped out or not cut out for this type of intensity, but I'm 1.5 yrs into consulting after working in industry and this seems to happen too often. I just don't feel like I'm as good as my peers and don't know that I can get there.

This is an honest question. I may be naive/over-simplifying. But if you’ve worked your way up the big agency ladder - have the titles, awards, big client resume, would it be lucrative to start your own small agency in a small market? I have to imagine you could specialize in local businesses (breweries, restaurants, etc) at affordable prices and do well with a small crew.
