The first month and 1/2 I started taking Project Management classes and now I'm done with my required hours so going to take the test in the next few weeks. I was getting paid around $135k for a Marketing Director role (New York).
Currently, I'm applying for more jr. Project Manager roles at tech companies to get my foot in the door so I know I'm going to take a pay cut, which is fine because it's a new field.
Yesterday, a recruiter from the field I have all my prior experience in reached out asking about my salary requirements for a job title that is more junior. I don't want to lose out on the opportunity but I also feel like I don't want to take a huge cut for something I have a ton of experience for, BUT I'm also unemployed and would like a new job. Does anyone have any advice on how to handle it?
