Trying to transition to PM and I’m not sure how to update my resume to align better with PM roles. Any recommendations for transitioning from finance to PM?

Here are some things I look for when hiring PM. If they sound relevant, apply these with examples to your resume.
- ability to partner with and drive consensus amongst cross functional teams
- ability to drive work forward, delegate and create clarity / tasks to get the work done
- detail oriented, keeper of all information
- PMs usually manage against margin, so if you could talk to margin or other financial KPIs

That’s probably missing a lot but hopefully that’s a decent start. I think you could make this transition for sure!


Sure happy it help

Thanksgiving is upon us. Send help.

My step in laws are TERRIBLE. Not directly to me but family dynamic is stressful. They parent their youngest kid with pills and ignoring him, so that he does inappropriate things around me with zero correction (walking in on me, insulting me). They are all half siblings (4 boys 30-11) so they all don’t care including my partner. FIL also verbally abuses MIL in front of us. Yet they all want to please him constantly. It’s just bad.

Food was good though.


Data 🐠

I need current market rates for analytics freelancers. Work skews toward true marketing analytics (reporting, dashboards) but will also include things like social listening or light audience work (3P available info - nothing custom). Prefer agency backgrounds.

What would hourly rates look like for:

Dilemma: I am 1 of 4 workstream leads on a large digital transformation programme. My background is Enterprise Architecture, and I am leading a team that includes Enterprise, Solution, Integration and Data Archs.

If I wasn't so desperate for the resources, I'd roll off 2 new integration archs that recently joined.

They both openly challenge my decisions (which are made in consultation with the team) with vague arguments, speak to me as if they need to "dumb down for the girl", and (continues)


Had a second baby almost a year ago now and just can’t get back into work mode. I used to be a workaholic and now can’t find any motivation in my current job. Most of it is probably sleep deprivation and feeling like I don’t have any time to myself anymore, plus burnout. Anyone go through this after having kids? How long did it last? I don’t have the option of simply quitting, but contemplating switching to a true 9-5, no-stress job, possibly out of law, while they’re young. But that’s scary.

What does your workload look like and or how many projects are you managing at any given time? Just wondering, as I have been interviewing and companies seem alarmed at how much work I am managing

I’d like to have a better idea of how much time should be estimated on top of design tasks.

I’m looking at our historical data to create baselines for how resources are budgeted and spent on projects.

What percent of a design project should be spent on management and operational tasks?

I have this broken down into, client communication, internal communication, and project setup / maintenance. What else should I track?

I was onboarded in a different role. Ended up being pushed as PM (because my business experience). Now I’m thriving on the role and few months now in the role I’m going to ask for a raise, since I got a crazy responsibility bump but 0 pay bump. Do you guys think asking 30% is too much ?

What certification is most useful for advertising PM’s?


My title is Associate Director of Project Management and my base pay is 113k however my employer said I can make *up to* 40k in bonuses. Why do I feel like my base is too low? Thoughts? I’ve been a PM for 7 years.


I was working for ad agency here in Minneapolis and they reached out to me on LinkedIn without a job description saying that they wanted a seasoned digital project manager which I am. I accepted the offer and started working for this agency and now 6 months in they are asking me also do Wireframes and Content planning together with a project manager role as their team is super small and they do not have dedicated ux/ui and seo members in place.I said that is not my part of the job and parted.


What is the biggest thing PMs want to build in their teams?


I’m an AE that wants to make the switch over to PM. But I also want to leave the agency life some point soon. Anyone have any advice? I’m also not sure how different PM responsibilities are in house vs. an agency


Anyone else at an agency where account has no appreciation or understanding for what we do? To be fair, it’s only one AD who constantly gives me a hard time but I’m so sick of it.


I started a new full-time job 3 months ago. My teammates only escalate small mistakes to my boss; I rarely get positive feedback on the things I go above and beyond on. I have a review coming up this week, and I don’t feel secure. A role that I applied to pre-covid became available. I got a verbal offer last week. Should I leave a full-time gig for a temp-perm one? I’ve killed myself to implement constructive feedback but I’m scared it wouldn’t be enough.
