This past week I’d made a habit of visiting the Philadelphia PM Career Fair and getting a peek at some of the hiring managers’ resumes. I had a chance to see how they’d been able to land their dream careers.
It does take a bit of perseverance to get a product manager job. In fact, many PM careers require that PMs have a “background in technology” as well as a “background in a specific industry.” To land a PM job, one would have to have both. It’s rare for someone to see their potential as a PM without it. That’s why the PM Career Fair was so important to me.
The PM Career Fair is a free event held by our company. The PM career fair is a chance for all PMs to meet with peers. It also allows PMs to show off their resume before they’re hired. The PM career fair is a great opportunity to meet with new coworkers at our office. It also provides a great opportunity to network with coworkers.
I had a fantastic PM career fair experience. I worked with some very talented people, and I know a few of them, which was great in and of itself. But it was also good because it gave me a chance to build a network of potential peers. I know that I have to work with a lot of talented people, but I also know I have to network with lots of great people.
I had a great experience working with a PM at one of our customer’s offices. I wanted to tell him how much I enjoyed his work, so I gave him my resume. He emailed me back, saying he loved it, and told me he was going to get me a tech lead position at the company. I replied with my resume, and he sent me an email saying, “I’ve been looking for you.
For a PM, I know there are many ways to approach a job interview. You could just show up and sit down, or take a job as a consultant. But even with that, you can’t just say, “I want to interview for PM.” You have to go on and network. What you need is someone who knows many other PMs at the company, and they’re all looking for people.
I think that PM is the job of being the go-to person for people who want to talk about tech/products/strategy in your company. If you arent networked, and you dont even have a resume, its hard to get the attention of the PM. The same is true for people who are looking for someone to do customer support.
In general, PMs are pretty demanding. You need to have a certain reputation that can get a lot of people to interview for you. They like to recruit you early, and not be too hasty in making you a deal they can’t walk away from. In this case that means putting out a good quality resume, but also showing that you have the potential to be a great PM.
PMs are in a tough position. They are usually the last people to know if you are going to be a good fit. They are the first to tell you if they think you can do better, and they are the first to see that the job you are applying for is something that you can do well. They are also the first to hire anyone who is a good fit. They are also the first to fire anyone who is a bad fit.
