I'm entry level (ba equivalent) and have done mostly PMO work in my one year at my firm. Exploring moving somewhere else- what skills/certs would best help my case to a recruiter?

Strategy/Mgmt doesn’t really love certifications, if you do get certs focus on the PMO focused ones. CAPM and CSM would be semi useful.


^profit optimization and operations improvement


You need to get strategy experience at your current firm before talking to a recruiter. They aren’t there to help you make a career switch, they are looking for candidates that match up exactly with their openings


Please define strategy


Looking for ba role in strategy/management consulting

Depends on what you want to do. More technical? Functional?

CAPM for more PMO stuff... CSM for development work... Security+ or CISSP(A) for cyber...

Certifications are irrelevant in strategy consulting. I would stay away from PMO focused certifications as well

What is profit optimization to you and what makes it interesting? Not convince that you just have a strategy chip on your shoulder

I went through the entire interviewing process for a position. The recruiter then asked for two references and my current address (little over a week ago/ a week after my final interview). I know that one of my two references was contacted and had a phone call (they spoke a day or two after they asked me for them). They spoke to that reference a week ago today (last monday) … And I still haven’t heard anything. It’s been a little over two weeks since my final interview. Is this a bad sign?

At One Show, got super wasted and DIDN’T corner a recruiter who ghosted me even though I had multiple opportunities.
