Been working in a niche science field at NASA for about 8 years, with 6 years of lead/project management experience. Not much room to move up anymore in this field. I just received my MBA and should complete my PMP soon. I’m curious if anyone has any advice of how I could transition into tech either in a Product or Project Manager roles. Any recommendations for how to not only switch from Aerospace to tech, but how I can apply for tech project and product management roles?
Hey all. Anyone have any connections at the Astros, NRG, live events, media / pr agencies or anything digital media related? I have a digital media degree from UH, and a year of internship experience doing PR for the astronauts at NASA. Thanks all!
My dream job is to work with NASA. For the past 7 years, I've acquired experience in the construction industry. I don't really like the work that I do, so I was advised to enter into the PM space. I was planning on brushing up my resume to be more PM oriented. The thing is the role that I want requires 5 years of mechanical design experience. My design experience is mostly structural/aluminum related. How can I really market myself to a different industry?
