I hope this message finds you all in great spirits! I am reaching out today with a desire to tap into the collective wisdom and experience of this incredible community.
I am a software engineer with several years of experience in collaborative settings with product managers. While I have thoroughly enjoyed my time in engineering, I find myself increasingly drawn to the world of Product Management. The prospect of shaping and driving the product vision, collaborating closely with cross-functional teams, and ensuring that technology serves as a powerful enabler for user needs is incredibly appealing to me.
I am seeking advice, insights, and any help you might be willing to offer on this career transition. What steps should I take to make this shift effectively? Are there specific skills or knowledge areas I should focus on? How can I leverage my engineering background to my advantage in this new role? I'm also interested in hearing about personal experiences and any resources or networking opportunities that could aid in this transition.
I'm very eager to learn from your experiences and insights - please feel free to reply here, or you can reach out to me directly if you prefer. Your mentorship and advice will be immensely appreciated.
Thank you in advance for your time and assistance!
