The Struggle: Why YOU Should Take This Course?

Early in your product management career, you can end up wasting months trying to learn more skills to break into a product manager role. Despite all of your hard work, you’ll always feel lost because:

  • You lack a formal background in product management or you’re coming from a different industry. 
  • You have no idea what product management entails nor what skills are required.
  • You have no time nor guidance to figure out what resources you should be focused on learning from.
  • You aren’t sure if the product manager role is a good fit for you.
  • You have no idea how to answer product manager interview questions.
  • You don’t have the insider tips on how to stand out as a candidate.

After years of interviewing product managers and coaching dozens on how to break into product management, we decided it was time to create the Product Manager course so that no one else had to go through the painful experience that so many go through to land their first job as a product manager.
