Are you open to transitioning internally? I’d say the easiest and path of least resistance is to express your interest where you are currently and move to a role more PM focused. Then, I suggest researching the different types of PM certifications (CAPM, CompTIA, PMP, etc.). Typically advertising/Creative PMs don’t benefit much from certifications, but if you’re looking for tech-side I would definitely look into that. I was a tech PM before I came over to the agency side and nearly half of my colleagues had certifications, were pursuing them, or planned to in the future
