I have recently changed careers to follow my passion and am finding it hard to get my foot in the door - I’m looping the vicious circle of having ‘relevant experience in the industry’! 😓

Looking for advice.

Hi all - would love some insight! About a year ago I switched to a client and product growth director role and am now thinking about doing my EMBA. Reason being, would want to eventually move into an executive or potentially head of growth role. The cost obviously is a huge factor but wondering if anyone has a perspective on whether it’s worth doing? I think at a certain point in a career it makes sense but curious if people think they are “still”worth such a crazy investment of money and time.
