The Struggle and Why YOU Should Take This Course
Many people encounter difficulties when trying to learn the necessary skills required to break into the platform product management role. This is mostly because:
- Some people lack a formal background in business management, marketing, or any other related field.
- The courses and boot camps currently available in the platform industry are very technical and jargon-filled or lack the depth required for the role.
- There aren’t many resources with insider tips on how to stand out as a candidate in platform PM interviews
To become a platform product manager, you must understand what it takes to build successful platforms. Additionally, you should learn the traits and habits of successful platform product managers. This knowledge will empower you to go after jobs at top-tier companies and startups.

In this course, you will learn the fundamentals of successful platform product managers, how to create user-friendly platforms, how to answer platform product manager interview questions, and how to stand out in the recruiting process to land a platform PM job.
