Hi all, looking for some advice. I moved to a new country (EU) in oct 2022 for a job and got laid off in feb 2023. It took me 5 months to find a new PM gig, and I’m a little bit into this new job and it looks like it’s shaping up to be a really bad fit. I want to keep looking for new jobs while I stick this one out but am concerned about having such short stints on my cv back to back. Does anyone have advice for me? I feel super lost and a little dejected. Any help is super appreciated!!

I have been in Product Management even before the term Product Management was so prevalent. I have initiated ideas for new products to align with company strategy and goals, designed and managed the development of the products, and enabled delivery of product to the market. Since most of these are B2B products, delivery would include a phased-production rollout to those customers, based on their roles, locations etc. I have developed both software and data products in the healthcare and social

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?
