Product as in product design? Or PM?

yeah you'll be fine OP, the skillsets are not vastly different. Good luck!

I feel like product design is largely both UX and ui

You switched from Product Manager into Design? Would love to understand why, just because it’s usually the other way around. I wanted to make the switch but worries about starting from base. I’m about 3 years into my PM career

There is a lot of overlap between Product Design, UI Design, and UX Design, and to a certain degree, Graphic Design. I don't think you should have a problem.

Had interview w/ BAH on Friday last week and it went great. Interviewees I spoke to said I should hear back either that same day or Tuesday this week.

Am I overthinking this?

Tech companies are mostly built up of 22ish-40ish year olds (not data, just how it feels) which makes sense as tech has been booming for only 20ish years. What happens in the next 10-20 years when the ones who are older for tech now, become actually old for the workforce. Do we get phased out by young people due to lack of relevancy? Or will we have 50-60 year old SAAS sales people, project managers, etc, still in the space and about to retire?
