How easy or difficult if will be to switch from chemical company working on polymers/nanomaterials to a tech company working on something similar for a Ph.D. professional. I have seen few postings at FAANG companies for Materials Engineer positions but none of them respond. Do they have many applicants or referral is usually required? Also, I am new here. I need likes please. Thanks!

Done! And I think it shouldn't be too hard. What other experiences do you have?

FAANG companies are just super competitive. I think you’re bound to get some responses if you keep applying.

Liked! I think it should be pretty easyto switch. I don't think it's a huge talent pool but it is competitive so prepping beforehand is key. Referrals help but aren't totally necessary

I am a senior manager with the FS practice at Wipro. I have hard-core delivery experience defining requirements with business and working with dev teams on solution design and development.

I want to move out of this role and get into Account delivery or Sales or something else. But my experience is too narrow or focused. My practice will not "allow" me to move out of this role.

Any ideas/ suggestions on how I go about this.
