Nothing to add but interested in how you made that transition and how challenging it was? It’s a role I think I’d be interested in

How I got the role? I was contacted by a recruiter - whiles at business school, I got dinged from a partnerships role & declined a follow-up offer for ops strategy. Was only interested in PMM/partnerships roles in a specific city, and communicated that really nicely to the recruiters, so when something perfectly suited came up 2 years later, they reached out. My background: 4 yrs tech pre-MBA. Transitioned to consulting and interned in another FAANG whiles at Bschool. I think I’m more of an exception than a rule…
