Mastercard?! 😱🤢🤮

funny

Mastercard, I sent you a dm

I mean there’s a bunch of legal requirements and whatnot around payments and credit. You’ll be fine, you’ll be working with a legal subset in a team (I would assume). Take the interview, see what’s up. If you don’t like it then don’t take the job

Then yeah shoot for it man.

I’m a program manager (former project manager). What are your major concerns? Moving from paralegal to a new role?
Like G1 said, just take the interview and see what comes of it. All that’s lost is a little bit of your time if you decide not to continue.

Ask about how the role leads strategically, plans work, prioritized against OKRs, influences stakeholders, creates scopes, how much autonomy you’d have. Or if they’re basically a meeting scheduler.

A lot of junior PM roles simply are a lot of admin work as you learn the discipline… so figure out the seniority level.

I haven’t crossed. I’m still waiting for the green man

Congrats! If they invited you, it’s likely they see you have the skills! Now what I would do, is look up the job description they have for that role and then begin to think of how the skills you have now work well with that role

I would suggest getting a mentor in the field if you're able to. But also, trust in your capabilities! You were chosen for a reason.

Y’all always say get a mentor but don’t understand that for some of us this is impossible. Very few people who want to help

What reasons do you have for moving forward? Like have they offered you anything that does appeal to you and would make you leave your current role?
