A mentor and building a network of other PMs! That's the best way to break into the field without any experience

Thank you!

Agree with the above, I switched internally from producer and it was much easier than if I had tried to go to another company. Read as much as you can, there are so many great books and podcasts. Also lots of YouTube channels (Diego Granados is great) and LI authors (I like Andrew bowker). Try to talk to as many PMs as you can, especially if there are ones at your company who are willing to talk to you. I’m currently mentoring someone at my company who is in another dept (with no product experience) and advocated for her as a PM to upper management and my boss. She will be joining my dept soon.
