how hard is it to pivot from producing to a project management role?

Very easy, after over 10 years as a producer, I went to a PM roll 2 years ago and have not looked back. A producer is a project manager for productions, so an easy transition. Also, many more job options as a PM.

Gotcha, thanks! My only concern is accepting this producer role and later on will have a hard time transitioning into PM without having those hard skills (JIRA, Smartsheet, etc.)

Not sure if I’d have to start at the bottom of PM as an associate.

Easier than the other way around. Producers need to know vendors, have the relationships outside the agency. PMs don’t necessarily need this for their projects!

Thanks for the assurance! I know the two are transferable. Said this in the comment above but my only worry is getting into production, and then eventually I’ll want to get into PM and won’t have experience with PM tools (JIRA, Smartsheet, etc.). Still unsure on what to do haha
