I have done analytics and operations consulting for 9 years and I don’t like anymore. If there is even a remote chance of getting hired for product management role, I would like to take it. I am reading the books on PM and polishing my resume, are there any other things that I should keep in mind?

It’s really hard to land PM roles without PM experience. You are too senior for APM roles, so you’ll have to either leverage your network heavily and get lucky, down-level yourself even at a startup, or move to a PM-adjacent function at a company and do an internal transfer after 1-2 years

Thanks DA1 - what do you mean by a PM adjacent role? Like Business Operations or Analytics?
