Ok..here is my conundrum...I am currently a Clinical Research PM in the academic hospital and have been here for a few years now. I have a master degree in Biotechnology and always thought I wanted to eventually break into the industry. Well, I have an offer on the table for a Sr. Clinical Trial Coordinator in one of the consulting companies but working for a big pharma company on assignment. I will roughly be making the same but I just wonder if I am making the step in the right direction. I spoke with the recruiter and she told me that since i do not have industry experience, no one will hire me as a project lead, which is reasonable. But if I do take this job, will I be able to advance to the PM role or will I be then stuck because now my resume has a lower level job on it? Desperate to hear from you!
