Hello all,
I’m stuck in a bit of a hole.
In short, I used to be an engineering manager that led a team of 15. Two years ago I changed companies. The new position I took was a huge step down to senior design engineer however the pay was actually the same and the benefits better. I thought it would be a good chance to get me out of the toxic company and then reset my career however, I’m struggling to now get a job as an engineering manager again.
Any advise would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

If you haven't already, make sure that your resume is formatted such that it emphasizes your previous managerial experience. However you have it formatted now may not be obvious enough for recruiters that are only skimming. Have a previous roles section near the top, being that it's more important for the job that you want than your current title/experience.

Great idea, appreciate this advice. Feel I’ve done this but will double check and see if I can empathise more. Thank you.

Economy is weak right now - probably not a good time to be recruiting

Perhaps I’ll need to put my hand in my pocket and get a professional review of both. Thank you.

I suggest you focus more on your resume. Highlight all your experiences and skills related to your target role. Best of luck!

1. If I want to be a tech PM in the future, would it be a bad idea to go into a different industry, like an ad or creative agency, for some time? Would it be harder to transition back to tech afterwards?

2. If you were at an early stage startup that doesn't have benefits set up yet, what % increase on top of the base salary would you want for total compensation?
