What's the career path for a sales strategy & ops analyst? Feeling that I'm not learning that much and career progression seems uncertain. Are lateral moves in tech companies possible/easy from this role?

Curious to hear this too since I get a lot of hits for sales strategy roles.

What skills do you have and what interests you? What do you want to learn? Have you talked with people on other teams to learn what they do and why they do it?

Apply to business analyst, product analyst, associate PM, junior PM, or technical operations roles that give you the ability to shift into PM. Don't delay! Keep working on your skills. Keep bulk applying. I recently stole an amazing woman from ops and made her a PM. You have multiple ways to get to PM. Keep grinding! You'll get there.

I can relate. I jusy graduated and love the company but dont see the role really growing at my company. I would suggest looking at product analyst or Associate product manager roles as those seem to be the starter points from my research into product roles which seem more challenging
