I’m a project manager with 7 years of PM experience in all kinds of industries. I’m currently in construction, but absolutely hate it. I’m looking to break into tech and was wondering if anybody has a good pathway into project management for a tech company. I’ve got a PMP, will have my AWS CCP in the next week and am hoping to have my Scrum Master by the end of the year (I’m on a waiting list)!

I’ve broken into project management by getting PMP and applying for Project Liaison/Coordinator roles with big and well known companies. Then after couple years of experience and having great names on the resume, many doors were open. Couldn’t be any happier with the career path! Wishing you best of luck.

Thank you so much! I just worry about dropping to a PC role. I feel my experience should at least get me into a PM role but you may be right

I would say apply to all the tech companies both big and small. Big tech companies tend to want people with tech comp background, however smaller tech companies are more willing to hire without tech background. Just keep applying, at the end of the day, it's numbers and luck!

Absolutely! I’m hoping something comes through soon, but my goal is to work for a company like Splunk and build into big tech! Thank you!

Hello Fishes

I had recently posted here about getting a job offer abroad(UK). Now I need your help to make a decision about the same. Just wanted to know if it makes an impact on your CV if it has a stint outside of India? The current offer I have is one level lower than my designation in India and pay wise also its decent enough but nothing extraordinary. Just wanted to know if it will help in future if I was to go now and return in 2-3 years time?
