Hello! I see a ton of questions in here about interviewing and getting hired as a PM. I also know that it’s really hard as a manager to hire a great team. I’m the head of product at a growing startup, and just hired two PMs in 3 months. One a career switcher who’d never been a PM before, and one a seasoned principal PM. Whether you are someone who’s interviewing or someone who’s hiring right now, ask me anything!

Hello all! I am an MBA in Accounting graduate who has had a few AR jobs in my past professional career and in my current role, I do GL postings and reconciliations and ensure everything for my assigned account is entered and posted to the GL. I really want to transition fully into the Accounting world but when I apply for Staff Accountant jobs (in my mind a step above entry-level), I don't get many calls. What am I doing wrong? What should I be applying for with my education and experience?

Having an interview with PwC DDV (Experienced hiring for senior associate). I did my research and talked to a few folks. Somehow they came in as MBAs so they had no ideas about the experienced hiring process and interview details. Anyone has any insights? Thanks a lot!
How can I impress the senior strategist I am about to soon interview with for a junior strategy role? The role is opened cause the account is in a place to train and mentor a junior. I have 3 months of strategy experience from my internship, but going up against people that have 1 year of strategy experience and scarred they would want them more since they have the experience and don’t have to train them that much.

For those at large tech companies with ESPP, do you sell immediately or hold? I've been holding but realize this is going to lopside my portfolio pretty quickly since I'm maxing my contributions. But also feel like it's a pretty safe investment, and worth holding for one year for better tax benefits. Thoughts?

Hi Folks - I wanted to understand..how is H1B 6 years duration counted? Is it strictly by the dates on the petition? In my petitions for example, first one was valid starting Oct 2017 and then I got an extension in 2020 till Feb 2023.. so that just equates to about 5 years and 4 months. So is my H1B only till Feb 2023 or it can extended to allow for the remaining period?
