Hello,
I am currently in the midst of completing my Google PM certificate. I’m looking to be a project manager and pivot my career from Finance to Tech. My target company is Google. Are there any tips you all have for me? How should I go about getting my foot in the door? Other bowls I should join?

As a PM I would say look into getting your PMP if you don’t have the “traditional experience” the PMP might help you transition quicker and tailoring your resume to focus on PM aspects of your roles.

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
