Hi all! I have a data science/financial modelling background and looking to get into PM. Trying to map out a path as I don’t have much product experience. Would it make sense to transition into a product analytics data science role first and then to PM?

Trying to leave advertising for tech. Made it through final rounds of the interviewing process and they called today to offer me a position two levels below what I interviewed for. They say I have a really strong foundation as a PM but they are worried about my tech skills and not ramping up fast enough. Trying to figure out the best way forward… thinking of either letting it go or trying to negotiate the next level up with probational consideration for the original level I interviewed at. 1/2

Finished up final round interviews a few days back. Hiring committee met today, and I received a request for availability by the recruiter this afternoon to follow up on the interview. Meeting would be with my potential boss & the recruiter.

Hoping they just want to both be present for the offer - but could it be anything else? Not sure why i wouldn’t just receive a call with the offer. I’ll know in the next day or so but it’s killing me in the interim

By the way there is a wall separating the first desk to the second and third one. I was just wondering what you have in play?
