View original

Product Management is a set of skills

  1. Basic understanding of each key area (business, design, technology)
  2. In-depth knowledge in at least one of the three
  3. A “superpower” unique to you

Guiding questions

  • General: Why do you want to get into PM and what have you learned previously?
  • Business Awareness: What do you think of the company’s business model?
    • Assess quantitative skills
  • Design Skills: Describe something you’ve built.
  • Technical Skills: logic puzzles or pseudocode questions

Ask good questions

  • Interviews often end with rejections: PM team needs to fulfill roles to balance its business and technical sides
