Hi! I want to exit out of consulting with almost 4 years under my belt. I’m mainly looking for product manager roles but debating going into SWE (after studying). I’ve applied to so many roles externally but rarely get call backs. How can I increase the number of interviews I’m getting or be seen as a competitive applicant?

Ask for a referral.

SWE might put you in entry level if you pivot. If this doesn’t matter to you, then go for it. But if it does, you should look into it deeper.

Other roles you could apply for. I mean it’s not bad to go into SWE, but with 4 years under your belt you might (keyword is might) be coming in the same level as a kid out of college. There’s no shame in that, I was just adding in my two sense in case that was something you were worried about.

I have a degree in horticulture with lab experience.
