Hey I am currently in Banking and looking to change job industries into Project Management. I have a lot of transferable skills but have no experience in the field. I am currently working on a Google Project Management Certificate but would like to branch out into this field before completing. Any advice ?

So I recently interviewed for an associate PM role with my current company. I’ve been a store manager with them for 11 years. During the interviews, I felt like things were growing great and the feedback I got at the end was great. You’d think given my time knowing the product/ company for so long, that I’d be a great fit but I got rejected and haven’t gotten feedback probably will get ghosted. Should I shoot my shot and advocate for myself with the hiring manager either way?
