If you were to interview for me I wouldn’t really care about the last two. If you can show me the ability and experience to lead a product team then we can begin having a discussion. Development and subject matter experience would be a plus. Lack of those two would not be a negative.

Did you try and recruit for pm during b school?

Past 1.5 years as PM

it's very much about how you frame your experience...MBAs don't really matter in this space from what I've seen

Super interesting background. I think normally an MBA doesn't matter, but it certainly doesn't hurt either and could give you an edge. PM is also a sales role to an extent so I can see how an MBA would be helpful. What other skills do you have relevant to PM?

Waiting for official offer document is stressful. Interviews done. Negotiation done. Verbal offer received. Just filled out app/reference/background documents. Official offer letter is going through legal review. Working honestly on my current project, while trying to time exit is not fun. I'm trying to not sign up for more work because it will feel like a broken promise to my teammates whom I like. Plus, I wonder a little if the official offer letter will have anything outrageous in it.
