Feeling the same going toward the other PM (project management) from a social science/non-profit background 3 years post grad. Figured the only sensible way to get anywhere would be to work in IT. Now I’m jill-of-all-trades at a small IT company, but I’m looking for that first paid PCO or PM role.
Thanks for confirming the deafening silence that people often meet with when they reach out into a new field at first. The failure/rejection is definitely not personal, but it sure can feel that way sometimes.
