I kid you not, when I was applying to McKinsey, I was desperate enough to use the “contact us” form on the website to let them know that I had other offers and that I wanted an update on my application status. I thought it was useless and that it would never be read but sure enough a recruiter reached out to me 2 days later and started the interview process. Give it a try.

I wouldn’t frame it as “you have a hiring push” I would frame it more around your interest and qualifications at the firm. You don’t want to look like your trying to find an “easy way in”. It’s a high standard and you don’t want to seem like your trying to take advantage of the hiring push. I would maybe bring up your success at other companies or interviews and always come across as a strong candidate they would hire even id there wasn’t a hiring push.

Like you can mention referrals and your other interviews but I would again not talk about the hiring push. Doesn’t reflect well.

I work as what’s internally called a product specialist. more of a customer success role where we are highly trained in the product itself to serve our customers and work closely with the PM/Engineering teams to advocate for enhancements/escalate technical issues.
I’m hoping to one day be able to pivot to product management work. While I have a high amount of customer facing experience, I do not have as much technical/design experience. Any advice on what to do to gain the necessary experience?
