Pratik, it’s all about separating yourself from the pack.
Networking is powerful, because when people who know you are good refer you there is a trust factor that goes with it. Don’t just send your resume or CV and a cover letter. Make phone calls. Ask someone in the company what the big challenges they face are, and come up with a solution to them.
Find ways to demonstrate your ability to add value to the organization.
Project Controls may also be a good stepping stone into a role managing the type of projects you want to manage. In a role like project controller, scheduler, or coordinator you will gain experience of the 'other side' of projects from the technical side you already know.
