What does a program/project/product manager do? Why does it not seem to matter whether said managers can code?

Cuz it’s not their job to write code. Not sure of the distinctions between the other two, but PdM is different and generally considered a step above career-wise

Product managers are generally closer to the business side. For example, identifying customer needs and features that need to be added or improved

I did my interview with kellogg last and I think I did well. The interviewer gave me good feedback throughout the interview saying my accomplishments were respectable, my answers robust, that I came off as very authentic, that she could tell I hadn't rehearsed my answers with an admissions consultant, and that I had faced challenges in life that most people applying to bschool hadn't.

I heard next my application + interview "score" will be reviewed by someone who hasn't already seen my app

Hi everyone,

I am running into quite similar issues in almost all of the companies I have worked so far: Most of the senior engineers just exclude me in the important technical meetings whereas I am doing an important part (technical) of a project. They either think I am not knowledgeable enough for a particular task or just that I am good at doing some non-technical/manual task. I am the only female in the technical team and how do I address this issue & to whom? Thanks in advance!

Hi! Happy Friday! So I would like to ask for some pointers…I am looking for a side gig to keep my skills sharp and also make extra money, I am very good at data clean up in Salesforce using ETL tools. Anyway, if you guys can point me on where I can find some consulting or side gigs cleaning up or structuring data, I did that for 3 years implementing Salesforce and pivoted to demo’ing so don’t get to do a lot of that anymore 😊 thank you ahead of time!
