I actually transitioned from QA (contract) to being a PM pretty successfully — which is like night and day. A PM knew of my experience as a project coordinator and mentioned my name when they were looking for a PM role to fill. My VP asked me if I was interested and I said yes and eventually I became a full time PM. I let my work speak for itself and now they’re having me work on the automotive account (though current circumstances allowed that to happen). I would say a lot of the factors of me being able to transition from QA to PM was making my desires known to the right influential people, timing, and a lot of luck

It also depends on how you tweak your resumé to fit in the key words that they are looking for... most people will see 1:1, have to change it up if you are going to transition. If you want to transfer within the same company, talk to the managers in that department. There is a bit of white privilege for sure.

Figured as much. Just hoping for some positive experience. If I even crack through into the interview step, there seems to be no trust in an ability to adapt. Only been doing it my whole life, y’all

I’ve been at a startup for a month now. I’m pretty certain my co-manager has been purposely withholding information from me when I ask for clarity on a process or general company information. Other than that, I like my role and company so far. What’s the best way to approach a situation like this? Pretty certain it’s because of insecurity and wanting to look better but I really am not a fan of these antics and it makes me question how long I want to stay here.

A few months later he texted me and said he just got married at the courthouse and that I should be in the wedding party when covid was over. It shouldve happened by now but it hasnt yet…👀🙂
