Any advice for a Brand Marketing Manager with 5 years of marketing experience looking to break into a Product Management role? I realize many of these roles require technical expertise (which I don’t have) but is there anything else I could do to improve my chances of landing a role in PM.

I just had a performance review at a biglaw firm. It was my first review since I lateraled from a small firm in my 6th year of practice. The review was very positive and the panel went through all the comments left by the partner reviewers, except one. One partner said: “showed he is able to perform at the level of a partner.” He’s the only partner to have said that. Anything to read into based upon the way this comment was ignored? Do they worry I’ll get presumptuous if they acknowledge it?

Hi everyone! I was hoping to receive some advice with how to transition to product management. I'm currently a senior medical secretary, 2 years of experience, at a well know hospital with a BA in psych and econ and a certificate in PM (thought I would at least get that since my job pays for it). I've been applying for PM or APM roles since March 2022 at various hospitals and healthcare companies but I've yet to get a shot at a 1st interview. Any ideas on how to improve my odds?


I’ve been working as a RPA developer for 4 years. I joined a program that trained me in this role as a opportunity to start a career when my initial plan fell through. I’ve don’t pretty good so far…given multiple roles, pay increases etc. Honestly I don’t enjoy my job anymore and would like to make a change. I want to transition to a tech Product Owner/Manager role. Any advice on how to transition ?


I am an experienced software and data product developer/ manager, who took a break to try consulting. My industry is Health and Public sector. I am trying to get back to product, but, the public sector experience is not apple = apple match in the private PM world. For eg. No agile. Words of advise from people who have made a transition from public sector to private sector in the PM space? Are there any good product management certificate courses that are respected in the PM-ing world?

Hi all! I have a data science/financial modelling background and looking to get into PM. Trying to map out a path as I don’t have much product experience. Would it make sense to transition into a product analytics data science role first and then to PM?

What is your favorite product and why?


I recently interviewed at a fast growing pre-IPO company for a Strategic PM role and I was sold that the comp should be around $180-200k plus RSU which should be about $300k annualized TC if all goes well. I have 14 years YOE in tech, but this would be my first intro to PM roles. How much signing bonus is reasonable to ask for if I am giving up on equity and quarterly commission pay to leave my current company?
