Following!

I generally see people break into PM in one of three ways - 1. Work at a large company in a product adjacent role (Analytics, Program Management, BizOps) and then transfer into product after a year or two 2. Apply for an APM role (these range from new grad to 4-5 years of experience) 3. Apply for PM at a start up The difficult part about breaking into Product is that most roles titled "Product Manager" at large companies require product experience. Based on your years of experience, I'd suggest routes 1 or 3
