I would ask yourself "why do you want to move over", what is your perception of the pros/cons of PM v pros/cons of AM. Also, what do you think are a PMs roles and responsibilities. I would then have a convo with a seasoned PM to go through your findings. Feel free to PM me if you'd like to discuss further.

with 7 years experience, your PM Chops and ability with PM tools will need to be pretty strong. i assume you are looking to make a lateral move, which would put you into Sr. PM territory. Not impossible but tough. I'm sure, amongst other things, you will bring a healthy dose of professional empathy.

DM me if u would like to discuss.

Hi, I need your honest opinion on this. Currently I have done AWS cloud practitioner certificate and want to progress but I don't think to like Solution Architect that much, I feel it will be boring for me. I love to create things, and love data manipulation, so I found this course in Google data engineer + AI... I feel it might be good fit for me. What do you think about it. Am looking for something I can study and stick with it long run. Thanks 😊.

This would probably be the last switch in my career and security would be of utmost importance to me. Please advise.

I’ve been in hot pursuit of a role in PM, assistant, junior, coordinator, producer. If it smells like PM I’ve been after it. I feel as though I’m consistently pushed towards a sales-ish role by recruiters “to gain experience” in a company so that I can move into a PM role for them. Is this a flat out lie? Are there any PMs here that had to embrace the suck of a cold call role before they could have the goal job? 😟
