I would honestly be lost without this program. The staff and community have supported me through the highs and lows of transitioning my career in media/entertainment over to tech. Throughout my journey at PG it was stressed over and over again how important it is to trust in the process, and that really could not be more true.

Product Gym offers one thing that other places miss - a focus on mindset. Prior to joining Product Gym, I had been apologizing for my “lack of direct product experience” and hoping hiring managers would “take a risk on me”. After joining Product Gym, I began to understand that no one needed to take a risk on me because I already had the skills and tools I needed to a great product manager - I just needed to recognize that before others could.

The whole process is not easy. You will need to put in the work and hours. You will want to learn, especially if you have never been a product manager before. You will need to get used to rejections. I’ll have to say this though, I used to beat myself up with every rejection, but with PG’s process, I didn't really have the time to sulk! I definitely learned a lot about product management as I went through the program and really appreciate the support that is there, not only from the PG team, but also the other folks that are in the program as well. If you are contemplating whether to join, just do it!
