How are you in S& and not know this? Use general terms, global metal manufacturer looking to make a potential acquisition or whatever.

For example, if you've worked with their main supplier, or that company was a potential acquisition target for a different client, how do you talk about this (very) relevant experience without sacrificing the sacred client confidentiality oath we consultants took.

Because being at S&, OP doesn't go around floating his resume and interviewing every week.

Recruiter from Amazon reached out for a phone screen for a L7 role st Amazon - Principal Product Manager, Technical. I'm a first year M and have been in consulting mostly. I do have the technical expertise the role requires but no product management experience per se. Think L7 at Amazon for me is a reach. My concern is if I interview and fail, I will be barred from interviewing from another role for 6 to 12 months. Should I give it a shot or save my chance for something more realistic (e.g. L6)?
