I am a senior graduating in December. My interests lie in the intersection of business and technology, like product management, technical consulting, business analytics, or a start-up jack-of-all-trades. Currently, I am looking for full-time product management jobs. I would like to connect with alum who are PMs, who know PMs very well, or who work with PMs, as engineers, designers, analysts, marketers, or customer support, etc. I am also interested in your thoughts on the responsibilities, challenges, and metrics of PMs.
I also hope to get advice on the full-time PM job search, or learn of other roles that also lie in the intersection of business and technology. My PM applications usually cannot pass the resume screen, even with lots of transferable skills and relevant experience: software engineering, data analytics, startups, UI/UX, consulting, project management, cross-collaboration w/ engineers and designers, etc. I don’t know if it’s due to lacking referrals, PM internships, or well-polished experience descriptions. Therefore, I hope to get resume feedback, interview advice, networking tips, etc.
Any advice, insights, and opportunities are well appreciated. Thank you so much in advance!
