I've been a development professional for 3 years (1.5 in membership and 1.5 in grantwriting). I would like to move out of development and into programmatic work, but am having no luck. I've tried to highlight the skills I've gained that would be valuable to program work (communication skills, research, project management, etc.), but I'm worried that they're just not perceived as good enough (i.e., related enough) to qualify me.
I've heard that most development professionals have a hard time breaking into program work. Is this true? What can I do?
How do I overcome hesitation and fear of public speaking? I feel like this is holding back my career.
