Thanks to Rich and Cody, I landed 12+ PM interviews a week and ultimately, landed 2+ job offers by the time my job hunting process was over.
I started off in digital marketing and found out about product management. I had no idea that industry existed and once I found out about it, wanted to be in it because it touches everything I’m interested in: design, tech, psychology, and conversions. I thought about the path to getting there, and at the same time, released a mobile game. I started to apply to PM roles, but was having trouble making it past the final round, and then heard about Product Gym.
By the time I got to the final round interviews, I was very burnt out. Product Gym provided me a very good atmosphere for being around a lot of very ambitious, smart and driven people and being around that atmosphere, having that solidarity, was very helpful. I was questioning myself; my self-confidence was shaken when it came to the final round. I think what Product Gym really helped me in the final rounds was hammering the product management concepts that I already knew all along, but just wasn’t answering correctly during the interviews.
Just to touch upon again, the atmosphere was very helpful in developing friendships with people that I still talk to. Rich and Cody are great; they’re always available and very insightful. I always appreciate the conversations I had with them because I feel like I always walk away with a nugget of information. The courses were great as well; I was able to listen to other instructors and members and their best practices were always very good. Some of the instructors are just fantastic, such as Jimmy, who I can just listen to talk forever. So, just the combination of all of those factors made Product Gym very special.
