Hi folks- I had an interview today and even the have read about product sense interviews, I bombed. How does one take mock interviews with peers? Anyone with experience willing to do some mocks to share the feedback? Is there a community out there willing to help out a newbie in tech PM role?

Practice makes perfect. I think all of us have bombed an interview or three in our lifetimes.

1) Youtube examples
2) Product interview course
3) Product interview coaching
4) Slack communities Mind the Product, Product School, etc
5) Facebook groups

I’ve found it to be a hit or miss experience based on the interviewer. Had one with meta and the interviewer didn’t follow standard interview guidelines, meanwhile my google one went according to guidelines etc.

I took a supervisor position a while back because I felt bad that my boss was dealing with high-turnover & having to pick up extra responsibilities to compensate. She’s given me nothing but praise 1:1. However, there’ve been times where she exerted more power & control over me than I prefer. Today she shamed me while in a meeting with all my peers. I was visibly upset, sat silently in anger. She acknowledged being “Rude” followed with “I’m not perfect.” I put in my notice shortly after.

Hi Fishes,

My colleague's younger sister is looking for a job as a fresher. She has recently graduated (B.com) and is pursuing US CMA. She's also done a couple of internships and is highly proactive and motivated. The family has been struggling to meet the ends specially due to Covid Pandemic.

Tried applying via Naukri and LinkedIn but there's hardly any response.
Can someone please refer her in their organization for a relevant role for a B.Com graduate. DM me for more details.

TIA
