Hi, I have more than 5+ years of experience in Performance Testing and engineering. I do not want to continue in tech. Want to switch to management. So planning to do a PMP course. Really confused about the consequences after the course, whether I'll be able to successfully get a management role or not. Anyone have any thoughts or suggestions for me? Any guidance is appreciated.

So you specifically want to move into product management yes? You will need to do other things like networking, potentially talking to your manager about moving into another track within the company or exploring if there's an official track the company offers, as well as seeking jobs outside. You will also probably want to work on some side projects.

Agreed with M1, moving into product management is a bit more sophisticated than moving into a management role within what you do. If you don't want to continue in tech then project management might work if it takes you into a consumer products direction. Consequences-wise - there's not going to be anything bad that comes of it.

Hi fish. I’m hoping to exit to health tech or digital health, and I’m looking for any leads. I’ve got 2 YOE. Let me know if you might be able to help!

Anyone here who made the exit from Big 4/MBB consulting to a VC? If so, I’d love to hear about how the experience is so far. (Not to mention the WLB and comp!) I’m considering a career change but have no one in my network I can go to for insights. Thx! 🙏🏾

Due to the scarcity of projects, I was staffed into a project I despise, notorious in the office for being ‘toxic’.

It’s really taking it’s toll on my mental health, I’m unfulfilled, not learning and skills I value, and on edge all the time. What is the best way to go?

I know right now many people(especially in audit) are jumping ships from one PA firm to another! Please, please, make sure that you get the highest possible base salary and sign on bonus!!! Those firms don’t want you, they need you!!! So make sure to squeeze as much money as possible and remember that they won’t think twice to squeeze you as well as soon as you join them.
