I come from a risk / data analytics background and I am completing a degree in analytics. I would like to work in the product management because I think I have the product sense and analytics background to be a good product manager. However, my resume generally does not get picked up for the profile. Does anyone have any advice. I know they would see it as an analytics resume but any recommendations that worked out for anyone in the same position would really help.
