How is someone a “product manager” at 22? Don’t you need to know the product and know management to be a product manager?

Some companies offer pm as internships or early in career positions. Therefore, it's definitely possible it's just tough to get into.

Read the book “Cracking the code” about Product Manager interviews at the big tech companies.
