Hi 🐠🐟

Looking for some WISDOM. 🙏🏻 I’m currently in strategy consulting and looking to transition into PM within tech.

For those that have done so:
1. How did you go about doing it?
2. Any insights/recommendations on making the switch?
3. Are there particular consulting skills that are highly valued for a PM role?

Any suggestions would be appreciative! :)

I’m working as a Senior PM in a third company in a row (moved from seed stage to scale up to big tech). Those were great moves, but each time I feel I need to prove the exact same point about my competence. The move upwards seems impossible. There were 2 separate events in which I could’ve jumped up to a GPM/principal role, in both I got turned down despite stellar feedback and practically performing the role in the interim. How not to get burned out by that?

I interviewed with the hiring manager on Monday and she really liked me and I liked her. On Tuesday I interviewed with the VP who is my bosses boss. That same day, I interviewed with the CMO. I was very tired at that point since it was 8:30 pm and then had been interviewing all day with this company and several others. The thing that threw me off was that the CMO seemed cold and she wouldn’t take off her her COVID mask. Not sure why since she was the only one in the room. Is this a red flag?
