This Month's Topic: Stepping Stones to Product Management

We used to say no one ever grows up thinking they want to be a product manager. That has changed dramatically in recent years, with more competition than ever before for entry-level product management roles. But if you started your career in a different discipline, it can be very challenging to get the attention of hiring managers looking for PM talent.

Many people looking for their first PM role are hoping for a quick fix — a hiring manager to simply take a chance on them. But depending on the background you’re coming from, the most effective path might be to consider a more thoughtful, strategic transition to your dream PM job.

In this session, we’ll cover:

  • Optimizing for where you want to be ~2 years from now, not ~2 months from now.
  • Strategies to reduce the “leap of faith” for a PM hiring manager.
  • The jobs that have the easiest transition into PM.
  • Planning a two-step transition.
  • The skills you can acquire in non-PM jobs that will help qualify you for PM roles.
  • There is a faster way to become a PM, but are you up for it?
  • And more!
