I am a project manager with the strong desire to transition into product management but I’m feeling a little discouraged. Every opportunity I come across mentions 7-10 years experience. I just started training for the Google UX certification with hopes that may better prepare me. Any other suggestions? Words of advice on how to best make this transition?

Thanks in advance!

How many years of experience do you have? If you have around 5 years you should still be a strong candidate. Unfortunately, the market is just a bit saturated right now.

Well, you did the right move of acquiring a certification. How far along are you with your training?

Yeah, all of those more senior folks will get interviews first, and then eventually we'll get the scraps! Ain't that how it always goes...

I am currently a charge nurse and am in a “Pathway to Leadership Program” that will come with promotions into leadership/administration. I am concerned that going through the leadership ladder will lead to a lot of politics.

I am thinking of getting a masters of healthcare informatics, and would love input from people in both industries and any advice you have!

Would you continue into the nursing leadership ladder or go into health informatics (which also has leadership!)?
