Hello,

I urgently need a new Product Manager role as my job offer was rescinded last minute due to company layoffs. I have an MS in Computer Science from Indiana University and over 4 years of experience as a Product Manager.

My skills include AI, Data Analysis, and Software Development. I have 5 weeks left on my visa to secure a job and am ready to start immediately.

Please let me know if you are hiring or know of any Product Manager opportunities in the USA.

Thank you for your support.
