Would not advise purchasing a boot camp per se. Most tech consulting firms will skill up and offer boot camps and trainings. Avanade/Accenture are great for that.

Thank you for your input. I will definitely look into those two.

I'd focus more on the courses available on Udemy, Coursera, etc. and then once you're ready, picking up a few freelance gigs on a site like Upwork to get your feet wet and start building your portfolio.

I think courses/certifications are more useful in the short term to help you pivot. Maybe look at some volunteer/side projects that could help? There's tons of open datasets out there that you can play with

Can you get any additional tasks/projects at your current work to help to expand your experience and let you learn on the job?

Are you a person of color? There is a really good, FREE 13-week program for minorities in Data Science through a group of ivy Leagues

I have approximately 18 yoe in various roles, operations describes my experience best though I’m a scrappy, do-anything type. I’ve mostly worked at startups, small to large. I stumbled into a PM role at a startup which I really liked so I decided to go for it. I joined my current company as a Jr. PM just to get into the door as a “career changer”. I quickly moved up to Lead PM and I’m now researching what my next role might be. I know I sold myself short here and I don’t want to do it again.
