Want to switch from nonprofit to tech

I have 5+ YOE working at national nonprofits and I want to transition into the corporate world. I have experience with leading teams in addition to solid strategy, project/program management and recruiting skills.

I should note that before I joined the nonprofit sector, I worked in corporate for 3.5 years at a large IT consulting firm where I had a functional role.

I live in NYC. Any advice on how I can reach my goal, in terms of which roles I should pursue? How can I gain attention from corporate recruiters?

    More money in being a PM. And considering you have strategy in your background you’d likely be happier there

      Only Microsoft calls it that, a PM is a Product Manager. I would say brush up on standard PM knowledge. There is a book on that. Some people might be skeptical with your non profit background so you have to know your stuff.
