In a similar boat. Hard to get in, most engineering orgs think manager must be an engineer. I focused my cover letter on why I knew the job, how skills translate, details on tech my previous teams did. Sadly the most success i have had was through my network. Can also try for adjacent roles like program manager or product owner and then try to make a lateral within once established there.

Any advice on finding a role in the industry

What is your goal? Are you targeting roles or just trying to find something that fits by applying online for roles?

My ideal role is software development director or manager but getting rejected. Tried with varying resume content. No luck so far

Starts ups are tough. Larger firms are going to be a better fit

Is it possible to become a project manager in industry after a year in the analyst role (HC) at Deloitte? All of my projects have utilized an agile approach, and I have taken classes/trainings recognized by PMI. My long term goal is to become a program manager, so I want to start at the project level. Any tips? Or places that hire PMs without the title of “project manager”?

Hi I am just trying to understand the job market. While everywhere around me in newspapers/online unemployment is being talked about, but when I see companies such as say Deloitte/other MNCs, there is a lot of hiring going on. So many people are leaving for better jobs. Then why unemployment? Is it in different space-retail and tier 2/3 jobs that being hit?

How often are critical roles at your company vacant? I’ve been at my current company for >4 years, and I was reflecting on how we seem to constantly be under-staffed. Every time someone leaves, we treat it as temporary that everyone else will need to stretch themselves and pick up the slack, and eventually we do fill that role, but then someone else leaves shortly afterwards, and we are back to being stretched again. It’s super tiring, and I wonder how normal it is.
