Have you successfully transitioned into another title? If so, how? Feel like I’m only considered if a role is 1:1 with my experience; but I’m always meeting white folks who talked their way in

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

Female, 4 years in the industry, 2 years as a planning associate, 2 years as an FA. Got an offer from an awesome team to be a CSA - which seemed great because (I think) I miss the support/planning role and I haven’t loved my time as an FA thus far. However, management has now stepped in and insisted I join the new team as an FA, not CSA. What should I be considering when making this decision on changing teams/titles? Should I push back on management on joining as a CSA?

What did you all use as starting point for your resume? Is it worth using a resume review service? EM at McKinsey and not getting even first call backs even though going the referral route.

Don’t think work ex is a problem as I have 7 YOE total - 5 in tech consulting pre MBA and 2 at McKinsey post MBA. Would love to hear others thoughts.
