For what is worth, for mid-tenure and senior lateral hires, my team uses recruiters and only does searches with a specific specialty in mind where we many unmet needs. What would you say are your specialty areas? Good luck with your search!

Thank you! Specialty areas are marketing, e-commerce, and digital transformation.

Network too. Beyond recruiters, also try to see and understand who is hiring

Can I just get this out? I’m 3 months into my first post-grad adult job and I’ve just received an offer for a much better position that’s in-house, a significant (like >10k) salary bump, and at a better agency. I realize now that I don’t like client services but I know how much my team is just managing to tread water. I kinda feel like 💩 but this is just one of those cliche “career-defining” offers that would be so stupid to pass up…

How tough is it to break into a FAANG PM role at mid-level if you have less prestigious experience?

Hi guys! I’m hoping to get your insights on this: I have been exploring job opportunities and applied for a position at a big company, i later found out that the hiring manager asked someone about me (someone who I’ve dealt with on a couple projects). That person is not on my list of references. I feel like someone who doesn’t truly know me is being put in a powerful position to determine my “fate”. Their judgement of me could be completely subjective. Is this situation normal?
